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. The chain has its headquarters in Richardson, Texas.
Wingstop's national spokesman is Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Fame inductee. It was acquired by Gemini Investors in 2003, who sold it to Roark Capital Group in 2010.
The menu consists of wings, boneless wings, boneless strips, and the "Chicken Glider" sandwich.
Sides include vegetable sticks, coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, hot cheddar cheese sauce and fries.
Dips are ranch, blue cheese and honey mustard.
