Gary Huether, Jr. and Mike Murphy, co-owners of Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, announce the eighth location in their Central Pennsylvania sports bar chain has opened in Hershey on November 23, 2013.  The new Arooga’s is located in Park Village Plaza at 637 East Main Street, Hummelstown, PA 17036 in what was formerly the “Gingerbread Man”, just two miles from Hershey Attractions.

“We’ve always wanted to have a location in Hershey, and jumped at the opportunity to open in such close proximity to Hershey Attractions,” said Huether on why they selected Hershey as their newest site.  “Hershey is one of the premiere tourist destinations on the East Coast, and with the recent acquisition of our Franchise licenses we saw this as the perfect opening to showcase our brand to people from all over the United States.”

The opening of the newest location will coincide with the launch of a new menu, which will feature a variety of new items, but still boast old favorites.  “It is the biggest menu overhaul in company history with ‘Hand Select’ Ribeye and newly added Gluten Free options,” said Huether of the new menu.

Arooga’s Hershey, as it will be known, features over 100 HD TV’s providing a view of every game, from every angle.  Arooga’s Hershey will also feature over 50 draft beers, with a rotating selection focused on showcasing Pennsylvania breweries such as Troegs, Appalachian Brewing Company, Liquid Hero, Ottos, and Victory…to name a few.

The newest addition to the Arooga’s chain is the most anticipated in company history.  “The Hershey location will mark the commencement of many changes taking place within our company; such as the launch of our new menu, the addition of proprietary ovens, Gluten Free certification for all of our managers and training of our staff, and exciting Franchising prospects.  This location will also serve as an archetype for our next opening in Shippensburg next year,” said Huether.  “We’re excited to finally be a part of the Hershey community.  There’s nothing quite like Arooga’s in the area, and we’re proud to leave our mark in such a renowned region.”
