Brand Co-Founder and CEO Ranks 29th
Harrisburg, PA (RestaurantNews.com) Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar Co-Founder and President has been recognized for the fifth time as part of Nation’s Restaurant News Power List Reader Picks, ranking #29 for 2021 in his category of Most Influential Restaurant Executives in the Country out of over five hundred overall submissions.
Huether’s ranking out of 91 total picks positions him alongside some of the most influential players in the restaurant industry.
“It’s amazing to be recognized again by NRN with so many other outstanding restaurant executives.” said Arooga’s President and Co-Founder Gary Huether, Jr. “Because of these unprecedented circumstances, we focused on innovating our systems to better manage our takeout and delivery operations and have seen a ton of growth in our off-premise sales, which has helped sustain us during these difficult times.”
Huether was Baltimore born and central Pennsylvania raised, and already an entrepreneur by the time he was 21 years old, owning Snap-On Tool franchises in Pennsylvania and Maryland with several employees and an order fulfillment warehouse. Huether sold his Snap-On businesses at age 25 to take over ownership of a local bar in Harrisburg, Pa, and his single unit purchase in 2008 has since succeeded to a restaurant franchise with 19 locations throughout the east coast and many more in the pipeline.
