Michael Hornsteiner, Jeff Reddick, Kevin Aycock and Sonny Hires will soon be making history for Wing Zone, a chicken wing franchise based in Atlanta. Hornsteiner, Reddick, Aycock and Hires will become the franchise owners of Wing Zone’s first drive-thru location.

“This is our chance to be trailblazers as franchisees,” said Reddick. “It’s an honor; it’s exciting and we know Cumming consumers are going to go crazy over this very first drive-thru wing concept. On July 16, we’re celebrating with a bang and Wing Zone Flavorholics are going to get a first glimpse into a brand new way to order wings.”

The restaurant is located at 518 Atlanta Road, Cumming. The first 25 customers in line will be rewarded with free wings for a year. Wing Zone expects hundreds of people to camp out for the 11 a.m. grand opening. In addition, other prizes will be awarded throughout the day.

The new Wing Zone franchisees aren’t new to franchising however.
