General Information

Wingstop is a high-growth franchisor and operator of restaurants that specialize in cooked-to-order, hand-sauced and tossed chicken wings. Founded in 1994 in Garland, Texas, we believe we pioneered the concept of wings as a “center-of-the-plate” item for all of our meal occasions. We offer our guests 11 bold, distinctive and craveable flavors on our bone-in and boneless chicken wings paired with hand-cut, seasoned fries and sides made fresh daily. Our menu is highly customizable for different dining occasions, and we believe it delivers a compelling value proposition for groups, families, and individuals. Our concept has received numerous accolades, including recognition in 2014 as the “Best Chicken Wings” in the U.S. by Food and Wine, the “#3 Fastest-Growing Chain” by Nation’s Restaurant News, and the “Best Franchise Deal in North America” by QSR Magazine.
