Highland, IN, United States, 2006/02/09 - Looking to spice up the palates of hungry patrons with a love for cooked-to-order chicken wings, Wingstop Restaurants, Inc. opened its first Highland location on Jan. 26, 2006..
Lynn Fourroux of Bayou Boy Restaurants, LLC, opened the new location in the Highland Grove Shopping Center at 10439 Indianapolis Blvd. (near Indianapolis Boulevard and Main Street, between Bennigan’s and Old Country Buffet and next to Hollywood Video).
In addition to the signature wings, the Highland location will also be 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.
“I was looking to step away from the corporate world and a friend of mine suggested I look into becoming a Wingstop franchisee,” said Fourroux. “I chose Wingstop as my entrepreneurial endeavor because of the product is so good it sells itself and the simplicity of operating the concept. We focus solely on serving the best chicken wings and it shows.”
The new Wingstop is open from 11 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. The wings are always prepared fresh and take 14 minutes to prepare. To contact the new Wingstop, please call (219) 924-9800.
Wingstop offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. The chain now serves boneless wings that are made from 100 percent all-white meat chicken breast coated with a proprietary batter and breading. Wingstop features nine wing flavors, including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mild, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan, and 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.
