Elk Grove, CA, United States, 2006/02/22 - Wingstop, a fast-growing chicken wing franchise known for cooked-to-order wings, opened its first Elk Grove, Calif. location on Feb. 1..
Jeff and Jemlynne Conley and Tom and Jeannine Winter of Wingalicious Restaurants, Inc., opened the new location in the Bel Air Shopping Center at 8447 Elk Grove Florin Rd. (corner of Elk Grove Florin Road and Calvine Road next to Hollywood Video).
In addition to the signature wings, the Elk Grove 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.
“Opening this Wingstop has been an entrepreneurial dream come true,” said Jeff Conley. “I had served as a district manager for a franchise for years and when I found Wingstop, I knew the opportunity I had been looking for to branch out on my own had come along. The concept of the restaurant is genius. Chicken wings are our sole focus and we do them better than anyone.”
The new Wingstop is open from 11 a.m. to midnight daily. The wings are always prepared fresh and take 14 minutes to prepare. To contact the new Wingstop, please call (916) 689-4949.
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.
Wingstop has more than 450 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 2005.
