Recently, Wing It On! celebrated its second consecutive victory at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York. The brand took top honors once again in the Festival’s “Restaurant Sauce Off,” retaining its title in theTraditional Medium Buffalo Sauce category, the most coveted flavor because of its cultural significance – it is theflavor true wing nuts in Buffalo and beyond seek as the original Buffalo sauce recipe. Plus, the brand debuted another contender at the competition, this one in the Dry Rub category. Its new LavaBerry Pop Rocks Dry Rub, which recently dropped, secured a second-place finish. 

Creating an exceptional wing experience goes back to the early 2000s when Ensero, and his friends would argue amongst themselves every football Sunday about who was driving 30-plus minutes to pick up wings from some of their favorite spots in surrounding towns. However, the distance and Styrofoam take out boxes would always result in soggy and cold wings once they got home. Ensero had enough, hence, Wing It On! was born. He opened the first Wing It On! in his hometown Waterbury, Connecticut, serving only the crispiest of wings that all true wing nuts crave.
