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 Richardson, Texas.

Wingstop's national spokesman is Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Fame inductee.[2]

Rapper Rick Ross owns 25 Wingstop franchises.

Wingstop was acquired by Gemini Investors in 2003, who sold it to Roark Capital Group in 2010.[3]
