Guthrie’s Franchise Agreement Expands into Western U.S.
December 06, 2022 // Franchising.com // Auburn, Ala. - Guthrie’s announced today that it’s expanding in a big way. Through anArea Developer Agreement, Stephen Galbraith and Matt Dahlhauser of Dahlhauser Galbraith Operating Companies, LLC, are set to expand Guthrie’s out west into Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.
“Guthrie’s is the kind of brand that succeeds in the American West thanks to a pioneering and adventurous spirit but grounded in mouthwatering tradition. These traits helped make us the first-ever chicken finger only restaurant in the country,” said Matt Dahlhauser.
With a national portfolio in real estate development, both Galbraith and Dahlhauser are uniquely positioned to develop Guthrie’s in these new markets. The business partners will leverage existing real estate holdings to get units open and operating quickly.
For over 40 years, Guthrie’s has drawn in crowds for its hand-breaded chicken fingers rooted in a tradition of fresh, hot, and fast, with a generous dash of southern hospitality. Rounding out Guthrie’s simple, yet classic menu is hand-chopped coleslaw, crinkle cut French fries, Texas toast and its signature dipping sauce.
“It’s amazing and humbling that Stephen and Matt decided to take this next step with us,” said Joe Kelly Guthrie, CEO of Guthrie’s Franchising, Inc. “They have been incredible owners, and after several conversations and meetings with our team, it was clear that this was going to be a perfect fit.”
