Charlotte, NC, United States, 2005/06/07 - Wingstop Restaurants, the nations leading chicken wing chain, has expanded in the area, opening their fourth location on Monday, June 6..
Brad Fuller, part owner of IDOHGA, Inc., opened the location in the Park Town Plaza at 1730 East Woodlawn Road., Suite H, next to Total Wine.
“I am extremely pleased to be opening in this location,” Fuller said. “The shopping center is a high traffic area which draws from downtown, Meyers Park, and the South Boulevard area; this should give us a great customer base.”
Fuller owns the location in partnership with his brother-in-law Jeff Fuller, and Jeffrey Bettison. They also own the store at 7629 Pineville-Matthews Road (Highway 51), which opened in October 2003, and was named Best Wings of 2004 by the readers of Creative Loafing magazine.
“We are looking forward to a strong lunch at our new location,” Fuller said. “The area is a huge lunch destination, and our quality product should draw a large number of this group.”
Wingstops are open from 11 a.m. to midnight seven days per week. Orders can be phoned in to the new location at (704) 527-1979.
The chain offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. Wingstop 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 over 400 restaurants either open or under development in 25 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. This July, Wingstop was ranked number four in Restaurants & Institutions’ ‘Top 400 Sales-Growth Leaders’ (the only wing chain in the top ten). Also in July, Wingstop ranked number seven in Restaurant Business’ ‘Top 50 Growth Chains’ (ranked by percentage increase in units) and number three in their list of chains by increase in average unit volume. Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy and Super Bowl MVP, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
