Wild Wing Restaurants is a Canadian franchised restaurant chain that specializes in chicken wings, quick serve foods, and other related products.[2]

History[edit]

Wild Wing Restaurants Inc., originally known as Wild Wing, was established in Sunderland, Ontario on March 17, 1999 by Rick Smiciklas.[3] Its main business is focused on flavoured chicken wings.[4] By 2008, it had opened 32 franchise restaurants in Ontario,[4] and by March 2016 it had 85 locations throughout Canada, primarily in Ontario.[5] The owner expects to expand to 130 franchises by 2020.[5]

Operations[edit]

Wild Wing Restaurants headquarters is located in King City, a combined corporate office and restaurant that had a soft opening in early March 2016.[5] It had previously had a temporary headquarters in Aurora.[3][6] and has 85 locations, primarily in Ontario.[5]

The chicken wings are sourced from Maple Leaf Foods.[4] Wild Wing Restaurants marketing focuses on its "101 flavour profiles". Their menu originally consisted of chicken wings and various wraps; it has since been expanded to include other fast casual foods such as hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches.[4][7]
