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 600 restaurants either open or in development.[1] The chain has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas.[2]

Wingstop's national spokesman is Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Fame inductee.[3]

Rapper Rick Ross owns 25 Wingstop franchises.

Wingstop was acquired by Gemini Investors in 2003, who sold it to Roark Capital Group in 2010.[4]


The menu consists of wings, boneless wings, boneless strips, and the "Chicken Glider" sandwich.[5]

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

Dips are ranch, blue cheese and honey mustard.
