Lakewood, CA, United States, 2006/02/13 - Wingstop, a fast-growing chicken wing franchise known for cooked-to-order wings, opened its first Lakewood, Calif. location on Feb. 1..
Far West Restaurant Group, LLC opened the new location at 5910 Del Amo Blvd. (corner of Woodruff Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard). This is Far West’s second Wingstop, the first is at 6810 Eastern Ave. in Bell Gardens and Far West has three additional locations scheduled to open in the next three months in Cerritos, Lynwood and East Los Angeles.
“This new Wingstop is in an excellent location on the corner of two high-traffic streets with great visibility,” said Daniel Sonenshine, president of Far West. “Jorge Ortiz, our vice president of operations, handles our new store openings and daily operations. With his top-notch leadership and expertise, I’m confident the new stores will be successful.”
In addition to the signature wings, the Lakewood 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.
The new Wingstop is open from 11 a.m. to midnight daily. The wings are always prepared fresh and make an excellent choice for catered events such as office parties, family gatherings and sporting events.
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, former Dallas Cowboy and three-time Super Bowl champion, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
