America’s best wings have landed in Memphis, Tennessee, thanks to platinum selling recording artist Rick Ross. Today, the Maybach Music Group CEO opened Ross’ first Wingstop restaurant at 7706 Winchester Rd.
Wingstop and Rick Ross first appeared together on Ross’ hit single “MC Hammer” where he rapped about his love of the chain’s Lemon Pepper-flavored wings. Now, just over a year later, Ross has opened his own Wingstop.
“It’s time for us to make it happen in Memphis,” he says. “With Wingstop, we are bringing in the food I like and adding jobs to the community. It’s a double win.”
Ross, who is currently preparing for the release of his fifth studio album, will work with an operating partner to run the restaurant. His first appearance at Wingstop Memphis will be in conjunction with a grand opening event October 15 from 2 – 4 p.m. It will include a meet and greet session and a radio remote with WHRK-FM K97.
