Wingstop, the chicken wing chain that has sold over 1.8 billion wings, is launching an expansion campaign designed to add more than two dozen restaurants throughout the Washington, D.C. area over the next five years.
The expansion effort begins with a Tour & Taste franchise event at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza at 2 p.m. February 25 where franchise prospects will have an opportunity to learn about Wingstop’s plans, meet with company executives and sample the chain’s award-winning wings.
Wingstop has four locations in Maryland and Alexandria, Va. and, based on the success of those stores, believes the area is ready for more.
“Our restaurants in the D.C. area have a loyal fan following,” said Bruce Evans, vice president of franchise development for Wingstop. “We plan to open 75 stores in the Northeast over the next several years, and see at least 25 of those restaurants in the D.C. area.”
