Too many Guys

I’ve noticed a sudden abundance of restaurants using the word “Guys.” I saw it first with pizza, next was barbecue stands, and today I heard the term in reference to a burger joint. Why are all these guys suddenly opening restaurants? The number of guys varies: Two Guys, Three Guys, Five Guys. Did this trend come from the movie “Three Men and a Baby”? After that movie came out, a moving company appeared called Three Men and a Truck. Is the Guys appellation an offshoot of that idea? Do Three Men and a Truck do the moving for the Guys restaurants?
