Wingstop Restaurants, Inc., is a chain of nostalgic, aviation-themed restaurants where the sole focus is on chicken wings. Wingstop locations are decorated following a 1930s and 1940s "pre-jet" aviation theme. The restaurant chain was founded in 1994 in Garland, Texas, and began offering franchises in 1998. Since then, Wingstop has grown into a chain with more than 650 restaurants either open or in development.[1] The chain has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas.

Wingstop's national spokesman is Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Fame inductee.[2] It was acquired by Gemini Investors in 2003, who sold it to Roark Capital Group in 2010.[3]


The menu consists of wings, boneless wings, and boneless strips.[4]

Sides include vegetable sticks, fresh baked yeast rolls, coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, hot cheddar cheese sauce and fries.

Dips are ranch, blue cheese and honey mustard.
