Wingstop A Powerbroker: National Brands With Name Recognition, Profit Potential.

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Back in 2011, Wingstop appeared on the Best Franchise Deals list with just over
450 units and AUV approaching $750,000.

Three years later, Wingstop continues to ride a wave of momentum few in the quick-service field can match. The chain concluded 2013 with a record number of store openings and AUV of $972,000, a $71,000 jump from the previous year. With same-store sales gains of nearly 10 percent in 2013, meanwhile, Wingstop continued its decade-long run of same-store sales increases.

In the 2014 calendar year, the company's 20th, Wingstop chief development officer Dave Vernon says his company expects to open as many as 90 new units and cross $1 million in AUV. That hearty ROI and Wingstop's ease of operations continues to attract franchisees both on the domestic and international fronts, as Wingstop claims more than 500 stores in its development pipeline.

Wingstop are clearly the wing experts. It is not a Buffalo Wild Wings, but doesn"�t need a 7,000-square-foot box, either." Although Wingstop is nearing 600 units, a lot of development opportunities remain in the Midwest, Ohio River Valley, and the Northeast.
