Wingstop launched the ultimate Buffalo-style chicken wings in 1994 and has been flying high ever since! Our proprietary recipes, outstanding food and superior customer service created a demand that could only be satisfied by the Wingstop Franchise Program.
Wingstop was founded in 1994. We began franchising in 1997 and our first franchised unit opened in 1998. Wingstop restaurants are designed featuring a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere. All of our stores are outfitted with 1930's - 1940's, pre-jet engine aviation décor and artifacts. The entire family will feel welcome in our comfortable and inviting surroundings.
Wingstop features nine proprietary wing flavors, including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mild, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian Barbeque, Garlic Parmesan, and Hickory Smoked BBQ. The wings are always made fresh-to-order and served steaming-hot. Wingstop also offers a variety of delicious sides including fresh-cut fries, soft drinks, beers and wine.
Secret recipes – proprietary flavor profiles developed over years of experience provide quality and consistency that most chains only hope to achieve.

You must have a minimum net worth of $250,000, of which $100,000 must be in cash or cash equivalents.
Even the best concept and best written business plan will fall short if you don’t get the training and support you need to make them work. But you don’t have to worry about that.
From the first time you contact us to inquire about a Wingstop franchise to the day you retire and hand over the keys of your Wingstop restaurant to someone else, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
It will take several months to do everything necessary to open for business, but if you’re like most of our brand partners, the time will pass quickly.
After you and Wingstop agree to move forward together, there’s a long list of steps to take – site selection, renovation/construction, decorating, outfitting, hiring and training, business operational planning and marketing, to name just a few.
Each of these tasks has a number of required steps, too. Imagine if you had to do all that yourself! We’ve done it hundreds of times, so we’ll lead you logically through it and put you on the path to profits.
You will have questions, even months and years after you open. Wingstop’s Franchise Business Consultants will be ready to help, drawing on years of experience in all aspects of restaurant operations.
Our established brand partners will tell you that networking with other franchise owners is a great way to keep up with – and help set – trends and learn from other successful operators. Wingstop’s secure, private intranet puts you in instant contact with other brand partners, as well as affiliates and home office staff.
Our annual convention also offers networking opportunities and advanced training programs.
It’s always best to complete the application first using the online form on this site. Then, our Business Development department will contact you. You are welcome to call us at (972) 686-6500 or by email at email@example.com.
