San Marcos, TX, United States, 2005/07/29 - Looking to spice up the palates of hungry patrons with a love for great tasting chicken wings, Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. opened its first San Marcos location on Monday, July 18..
Ray Morales, owner of San Marcos Wings, Inc., and partner, Charles Loflin, opened the location in San Mar Plaza at 913 Highway 80. He also owns a Wingstop restaurant in Laredo, Texas, which opened in January 2004.
Morales was attracted to Wingstop due to his brother-in-law’s success with his eight San Antonio restaurants and the quality of the food.
“The food is so good; once people taste the wings, they become addicted,” said Morales. “We opened on Monday and have had crowds from New Braunfels and all over. People are excited that there is finally a Wingstop in San Marcos.”
The new Wingstop is open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight. Orders can be phoned in to the new location at (512) 392-9464.
The chain offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. Wingstop features nine proprietary wing flavors, including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mild, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan and our brand new Hickory Smoked BBQ. The wings are always made-to-order and served steaming hot. Customers also choose from homemade side dishes: fresh-cut seasoned fries, bourbon baked beans, pearl potato salad, creamy cole slaw, vegetable sticks, rolls and assorted dipping sauces.
Wingstop has more than 400 restaurants either open or under development in 25 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. In 2004, Wingstop was ranked the number one chicken wing chain by Entrepreneur magazine and number four in Restaurants & Institutions’ Top 400 Sales-Growth Leaders (the only wing chain in the top ten). In July 2005, Wingstop ranked number 13 in Restaurant Business’ Top 50 Growth Chains (ranked by percentage increase in units). Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy and Super Bowl MVP, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
