In 2003, Yum! launched WingStreet as a hybrid combo unit with an existing Pizza Hut franchise.[4] In 2007, Pizza Hut/WingStreet opened their 1,000th restaurant. In 2007 and 2008, a thousand WingStreet stores a year were opened. On October 19, 2009, Company president Steve Udovic publicized WingStreet's national launch.[4] The chain predicted aggressive growth, adding more than 4,000 locations by 2010.[5]


WingStreet restaurants sell breaded and traditional buffalo wings for take-out and delivery. Their sauces include Teriyaki, Spicy Garlic, Honey BBQ, Garlic Parmesan and Buffalo (Mild, Medium, and Hot), as well as cajun and lemon pepper dry rubs. They also offer sauce-free "Naked" wings.

Aside from chicken wings, the restaurant usually offers additional sides such as fried cheese sticks, chicken tenders, apple pies, french fries (Ranch or Cajun style) and potato wedges. Moreover, certain locations may offer curly fries, jalapeno poppers and onion rings.
