Looking to spice up the palates of hungry patrons with a love for great tasting chicken wings, Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. opened its first Allen, Texas location on Sept. 19.
Todd Metten, of Wings by Metten, opened the location in the Allen Retail Center at 543 McDermott Drive.
“Allen is a great location for a Wingstop,” said Metten. “Many of my Allen customers have been traveling to other Wingstop locations and are happy to now have a store close to their homes.”
In addition, the Allen location will be serving Wingstop’s new 100 percent, all-white chicken breast boneless wings. Wingstop selected the new wings, which feature a proprietary batter and breading recipe along with a marinated breast meat, after extensive research into the consumer market for chicken products. The boneless wings are available in any of Wingstop’s nine proprietary wing flavors or unsauced with your choice of Hickory Smoked BBQ, honey mustard or ranch dressing on the side.
The new Wingstop is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to midnight. Orders can be phoned in to the new location at (214) 383-2010.
Wingstop offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. The chain 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) and was named Festival Favorite restaurant at the National Buffalo Wing Festival. Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy and three-time Super Bowl champion, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
