Huey’s is participating this year in Memphis Business Journal’s Social Madness Competition, which gives us a chance to win $10,000 for Church Health Center! The competition is based off of our Huey’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and is judged based on the amount of engagement we have with our customers on it. We are competing with other local Memphis organizations who have a big social media presence, and if we win the local competition, we will move on to compete in the national Business Journal Competition! The first round of the competition has begun. It started on June 3rd and runs...Read More

This past Saturday, we were proud to be a part of MAD SWEEP 1, an event put on by the Madison Avenue Business Association, in conjunction with Clean Memphis and other local Madison Avenue businesses. For the whole morning, we walked up and down Madison Avenue, picking up trash, cleaning up abandoned properties, and doing an overall “clean sweep” of the street. There is a lot of great things going on in Overton Square and all over Madison right now, and we want to do our part as a business to make sure we are keeping the street beautiful! It...Read More

Ever felt the need to pound into women while skating and wearing killer outfits? Well, this is what the Memphis Roller Derby (MRD) league does weekly throughout their season. The Memphis Roller Derby league is composed of three home teams: Women of Mass Destruction, Angels of Death, and the PrissKilla Prezleys. All-stars from those teams form the interleague travel team, the Memphis Hustlin’ Rollers, which competes against other roller derby leagues. They are of the only all-female, flat track derby teams in the region. You may not know that MRD is a non-profit organization, and they have approximately 60 skaters and 20 volunteers...Read More
We were very excited to be able to sponsor and participate again this year in the Polar Bear Plunge and Chili Cook-off, benefiting The Special Olympics. This event took place on Saturday, February 2nd, at Mud Island. During the morning, competing teams perfected their chili recipes, then gave a sample to the judges, as well as letting all of the passers-by get their fill as well. In the afternoon, some very brave volunteers ran and jumped into the Wolf River Sound to raise money for the cause. This is a very fun event, and we are always excited when February rolls around...Read More
One of our most important values at Huey’s is community involvement. Thomas Boggs always emphasizes the importance of giving back to the people who give us so much. We are excited that, as a business, we are able to get so involved with our community. There are many great non-profit organizations in Memphis, and hard-working people behind them, that we feel we can only do our best to support them. Below is a summary of our community involvement in 2012.
Our friends at Southern Living have launched a poll on their website to find the Tastiest Town in The South. They have nominated their Top 10 picks, and it is up to the voters to decide what city takes first place. Currently, Memphis is ranked 3rd, right behind Asheville and Durham, NC. Those cities are great, but what do they really have on us? We encourage all of you to go out and vote for Memphis, because we all know Memphis has the best of all cuisines. You can vote once a day, every day. This is a great boost for our...Read More
