With Super Bowl XLV planned for this weekend, restaurants in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex are preparing themselves for an influx of people, money, and energy that should provide a lineman-sized boost to their bottom lines.
Wingstop is expanding throughout the Baltimore-Washington Corridor. The company, which has experienced more than seven years of same-store sales increases, recently signed a development agreement to open 20 new stores in the area over the next several years.
Business partners Rahim Kurji and Bidjaan Kassam have signed a 20-store development agreement and expect to open four locations in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., this year.
As part of an aggressive national expansion campaign, Wingstop announced a franchise incentive program designed to help new and existing franchises open more Wingstop restaurants nationwide.
The program is the first time the fast-growing wing chain has offered franchise incentives and is designed to attract more multiunit owners.
Wingstop today announced it has opened its first location in Queens, New York. The store, located at 31-14 Steinway Street in Astoria, is owned and operated by franchisee Mac Khahera.
With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken wings, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings sauced and tossed in nine proprietary flavors including Original Hot, Lemon Pepper, and Garlic Parmesan, and side dishes such as fresh-cut, seasoned fries.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Wingstop, the chicken wing chain that has sold over two billion wings, announced a sponsorship in which Wingstop will be the Official Wings Of The Los Angeles Lakers.
The three-year agreement gives Wingstop name and logo rights for use in advertising materials, placement on the Lakers website, and promotional display mentions on the STAPLES Center LED signage during all Lakers regular season home games.
David Vernon, the chain's new vice president of franchise sales, spent 13 years as vice president of sales at Sonic Corporation, where he helped grow the company from 1,550 drive-ins to more than 3,500 drives-ins.
There’s a Wingstop in Dallas where the counters aren’t so neat and the owner drips batter onto the floor, and when tongs fall into the deep fryer, managers stare inside thinking of ways to get them out.
Welcome to Wingstop U. Not a real store, but a mock-up Wingstop that’s part of the company’s headquarters, where training of new franchisees takes place.
