James Flynn, Wingstop president and CEO, announced today that first quarter, ending April 1, 2006 comp store sales have increased 11.3 percent. The chain has also increased comp store sales over the corresponding period a year prior for 11 consecutive quarters – starting third quarter 2003 on June 29 and ending first quarter 2006 on April 1.
“We are proud to announce our double digit first quarter comp stores sales increases as well as our 11th consecutive quarter of positive comp store sales,” said Flynn. “Our commitment to focusing solely on chicken wings and our dedication to being The Wing Experts™ has enabled us to accomplish such an achievement.”
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. Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame inductee, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
