Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken coming to Little Rock

Posted By on Fri, Jan 11, 2013 at 11:15 AM

Rumors started floating in yesterday in the comment thread of our post yesterday on the imminent closure of Redbone's Downtown, but we can now confirm: Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken, a restaurant GQ once called one of the top five in the country, is opening an outlet in Little Rock.

Wendy McCrory, franchise owner of the downtown Memphis location, has confirmed the plan to Eat Arkansas's Michael Roberts. She said she wasn't ready to confirm the location, though all signs point to the soon-to-be-former Redbone's space in the River Market (a block away from Times HQ!).

Gus's Fried Chicken of Little Rock, LLC was incorporated in September of last year. Officers include DGLR, an LLC that lists Daniel Bryant, the property owner of the building that currently houses Redbone's, as its only officer, and M&S Holdings of Arkansas, an LLC that includes Carter Malloy, a research analyst at Stephens, and Jennifer Malloy. I've got calls into Bryant and Carter Malloy.

UPDATE: Malloy said he wasn't ready to confirm any details other than his involvement in trying to bring a Gus's to Little Rock.
