Wingstop Inc. is a chain of nostalgic, aviation-themed restaurants specializing in 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 1,000 restaurants either open or in development. The chain is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
Wingstop's former national spokesman was Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl champion and NFL Hall of Fame inductee. It was acquired by Gemini Investors in 2003, which sold it to Roark Capital Group in 2010.
The menu consists of wings, boneless wings, and chicken strips, with a variety of dips and sides.
Wingstop's first location opened in 1994, in Garland, TX. The founders, Antonio Swad and Bernadette Fiaschetti, had already opened Pizza Patrón in 1986, when they were dating.
