Mission, TX, United States, 2005/10/20 - Looking to spice up the palates of hungry patrons with a love for great tasting chicken wings, Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. opened its first Mission, Texas location on Oct. 4..
Johnny Collins, of South of the Border Wings, Inc., opened the new location at 2310 E. Expressway 83, Suite 4 (Shary and Highway 83).
“The location in Mission is the second Wingstop that I have opened with the help of my brother Leroy,” said Collins. “I first ate at Wingstop in Euless and knew immediately that the concept would be very successful in the Valley. We have received an overwhelming response and I know my Mission customers that have been traveling to McAllen are happy to have a Wingstop close to their homes.”
The new Wingstop is open from 11 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Orders can be phoned in to the new location at (956) 583-9464.
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.
