Wingstop announced today that same store sales for the second quarter are up 6 percent over the same quarter last year, and up 4.2 percent for the first half of 2011.
“This has been one of the strongest quarters of the past few years, and we got there without raising prices or compromising on quality,” Wingstop CEO Jim Flynn says. “One advantage is that wing prices have remained consistent and we’ve been able to hold our costs in line and bring our guests a great product at a great value.”
In addition to strong restaurant sales, Wingstop has signed development agreements this year to open 75 new stores, including multiple locations in Atlanta, Seattle, Milwaukee, and San Diego.
Wingstop will celebrate the banner year at Red Rock Casino & Resort next month during its 9th Annual National Convention, where the company will honor its top performing franchise brand partners and vendors.
With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings, strips, and the chain’s newest offering – Glider sandwiches – all sauced and tossed in nine original flavors including Lemon Pepper and Garlic Parmesan. The company has experienced same store sales growth for seven consecutive years and 31 of the past 32 quarters.
