Wings Etc. is a full-service restaurant featuring award-winning, fresh-never-frozen jumbo wings and premium burgers, as well as appetizers, salads, wraps, sandwiches, ribs and much more. Wings Etc. is also a fantastic sports bar, offering a wide selection of bottled and draft beer, as well as wine and cocktail options.
The HDTV-filled Wings Etc. bar and dining room are perfect for sports fans who want a better game-watching experience. And our famous food and drinks are served by well trained, engaging staff members wearing jeans and funny t-shirts that are wildly popular with guests.
While we passionately maintain our commitment to excellent food, drink and service in our restaurants, we are equally committed to serving our larger communities, and use frequent fundraisers and local team sponsorships as a means for growing long term, mutually beneficial relationships with schools, churches and other local groups.
Unlike highly programmed, "corporate-feel" sports bar chains and sketchy theme chains, Wings Etc. offers the advantage of being the cozier, more relaxed "hometown sports bar," and creates passionately loyal customers who love the way our place feels like a home away from home. Also, our smaller footprint offers a lower cost of entry and lower break-even than most full-service sports bars and restaurants.
As efficient in an inline center as a freestanding building, the Wings Etc. concept adapts to local market and real estate opportunities. Wings Etc. locations are often cost-effectively retrofit into existing restaurant and freestanding retail space, reducing costs, enabling more rapid project development and a faster track to Grand Opening.
This concept flexibility creates considerable advantages for franchisees who are finding abundant site options and favorable lease terms during the ongoing economic recovery. From footprints as small as 3,500 to as large as 4,500 sq. ft., the Wings Etc. concept fits virtually any market condition and any retail area: small towns, big metros and everything in between.
In today's competitive food service environment, having the right system, the right team, and the right training makes all the difference. Wings Etc. provides comprehensive support from initial contact through site selection, build out, pre-opening, grand opening and beyond.
Our development and operational support staff bring years of experience in a wide range of retail and restaurant operations. Support includes site selection assistance, financing consultation, and hands-on training at a certified training site, where you'll observe and participate in the day-to-day operation of a Wings Etc. restaurant and pub.
Training will also include classroom-type sessions, where you'll learn and put into practice the processes outlined in our detailed Operations Manual and supplemental documents. Full marketing and advertising support are also provided, and our uniquely memorable, customized-for-your market TV and radio spots help your Wings Etc. location break through all the foodservice "marketing clutter."
In a few short weeks you'll become a seasoned veteran of the Wings Etc. concept and brand/market position. And you'll be completely equipped to open a distinctively different sports bar business, with local and national team members determined to help you achieve your business objectives and financial goals.
