Wingstop is launching an expansion campaign designed to add more than 50 restaurants throughout the Chicago and Midwest area.

With 450 stores throughout the U.S. and Mexico, and 14 franchised locations already open in Chicago, including the top-grossing store in the system, Wingstop is recruiting qualified franchise prospects to learn more about the company’s plans to expand in the Midwest.

The expansion effort begins with a Tour & Taste franchise event at the Hyatt Regency Chicago at 2 p.m. on June 23, where franchise prospects will have an opportunity to meet with Wingstop executives and sample the chain’s award-winning wings.

“Chicago loves wings, and we have a very loyal fan following here,” says Bruce Evans, vice president of franchise development for Wingstop. “There is a huge growth opportunity in Chicago and the Midwest, and we look forward to meeting the right franchise partners to help us continue opening successful stores in this area.”

The Tour & Taste franchise event is intended for small business owners, multi-unit franchisees, and entrepreneurs interested in learning about opening and operating Wingstop in the Midwest. The event will take place on Wednesday, June 23, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Event registration will take place between 1:30–2 p.m., and the event will follow between 2–3:30 p.m.
