Wingstop landed on the scene in 1994 with the idea of serving the ultimate buffalo-style chicken wings and to provide quality products with superior service at an exceptional value. An immediate hit, we began offering franchises in 1997 in response to the growing interest from entrepreneurs wanting to open their own Wingstop restaurant.
Today we have more than 450 restaurants open or under development in 26 states and continue to add new stores at a rate of almost 30 percent annually.
Everyone Loves Wingstop.
Our brand partners come from a variety of backgrounds but all share a single trait - a burning desire to build a successful business.
"The Wingstop concept has been very easy to get right. At other concepts there are so many different menu items. It was a relief to find Wingstop where the concept of chicken and fries was so simple. It's made training the employees and teaching quality controls a lot easier."
-Deborah Brown, Tallahassee, Fla.
"The Wingstop corporate team is knowledgeable and focused. With Wingstop you get a strong brand and management team and we need strong franchisees to join us."
-Lance Graulich, Las Vegas
