Omaha, NE, United States, 2005/12/05 - Looking to spice up the palates of hungry patrons with a love for great tasting, cooked-to-order chicken wings, Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. opened its newest location in Omaha on Nov. 11..
Kevin and Laura Parker, of Wing Nutt, Inc., opened the new location at 10904 "Q" St., Suite A10 in the Empire Park Shopping Center (corner of 108th and Q Street). This is the fourth Wingstop in Omaha and the Parker’s third.
The new Omaha location is also serving Wingstop’s new 100 percent, all-white meat chicken breast boneless wings. Wingstop selected the new wings, which feature a proprietary batter and breading recipe along with 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 dipping sauces.
“Empire Park Shopping Center is an excellent location for a Wingstop,” said Kevin Parker. “The neighborhood is great and the shopping center is very active. The residents have really welcomed Wingstop to the community.”
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 (402) 596-9464.
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 26 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. Wingstop was chosen Festival Favorite Restaurant at the 2005 National Buffalo Wing Festival and their Cajun sauce took first place honors for the Best Creative Spicy Sauce in the festival’s blind taste test. In July 2005, Wingstop ranked number 13 in Restaurant Business’ Top 50 Growth Chains (ranked by percentage increase in units) and was ranked the number one chicken wing chain by Entrepreneur magazine in 2004 and 2005. Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy and three-time Super Bowl champion, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
