Wingstop, awarded Best Overall Company 2008 by the American Business Awards, has landed in the city of Harlingen. Raul Torres of Wings By The Border IV, Inc. just opened a new location at 1729 W. Harrison Ave.
The store is open from 11 am. to midnight daily. To contact the new Wingstop or to place take out orders, call 956-428-WING (9464).
Wingstop’s signature bone-in chicken wings and boneless wing strips are prepared fresh and are available in nine proprietary flavors. Both types of wings are made-to-order and there are no heat lamps, microwaves or holding bins in the store. Side dishes are made from scratch and prepared daily in each location. Party platters are available for catered events such as office parties, family gatherings and sporting events.
“We’re really excited to be open here and look forward to serving the wing fans in the community,” said Torres. “Wingstops have incredible wings and we look forward to seeing everyone come by and try us out.”
Wingstop (wingstop.com) offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. The chain now serves boneless wing strips 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 can also choose from homemade side dishes including fresh-cut seasoned fries, bourbon baked beans, potato salad, creamy cole slaw, vegetable sticks, rolls and assorted dipping sauces.
Wingstop has more than 600 restaurants either open or under development in 31 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. Wingstop recently won an American Business Award for Best Overall Company and is 125th on Entrepreneur’s 2008 Franchise 500 list and was chosen Wing King at the 2006 National Buffalo Wing Festival. Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame quarterback, has served as the chain’s national spokesman since 2003. Aikman extended his contract in 2006 for three years, as Wingstop has posted 20 consecutive quarters of comp store sales increases since the partnership.
