Wing It On!, a hot wing chain based out of New England, is planning to make its way into Central Florida’s fast-food landscape.
Known for its fresh, all-natural, never-frozen wings ‘n ‘wiches, the fan-favorite food joint brings a simple yet innovative menu with a multitude of selections. On top of a myriad of wing flavors, Wing It On! also serves a full lineup of handcrafted crispy chicken sandwiches, mouthwatering customizable seasoned fries, freshly prepared salads, and more.
According to news releases, the chain has signed agreements for at least two Florida franchise locations so far — one in Apopka and the other in Orlando. The company said that this is part of a larger plan to bring about 25 to 30 units to “target markets in Florida such as Orlando and Tampa.”
The Orlando franchise location will be owned by Dave Miller.
“Miller brings with him a wealth of business experience to Wing It On! Previously, he worked for one of the top banks in the United Kingdom and Australia, as well as working in the forestry industry in New Zealand. He also operated a coffee roastery in the United Kingdom,” according to the release.
The Apopka location will be owned by Anthony and Rebecca Cray and Betty Wilkins.
“The Crays and Wilkins bring a wealth of business experience with them to Wing It On!. Together, the three of them strike a balance between business savvy and empathy with a diverse background in service-oriented industries such as telecommunications, medical, real estate, and transportation. Wilkins is also a pillar in her community as a leader, operating a group home for those suffering from mental health conditions,” the company said.
Wing It On! has not revealed any addresses or opening dates for the already set locations, but they will be the first to open in the Sunshine State.
The New England-based wing spot began cookin’ in Connecticut in 2011. As mentioned before, the restaurant offers a menu of chicken wings and tenders in an array of flavors, sauces, and rubs. They also offer chicken sandwiches.
As the brand continues to grow, Wing It On! is actively seeking highly qualified single and multi-unit owners looking to invest in an emerging brand within the fast-growing chicken segment. Ideal franchise owners would have an operations or business background and a passion for the restaurant industry. If you’re a chicken lover, even better.
According to the news release, those looking to open a franchise “must have a minimum net worth of $400,000 and meet the minimum liquid assets requirement of $100,000.”
