What Football Season Means for a Beloved Chicken Wing Franchise

As football season kicks into full gear, Wing Zone is preparing for one of its busiest seasons. With a revolutionary cooking process, new menu and fresh shop design, the 32 Wing Zones across the nation are ready to “tackle” the high ticket count, game-day foot traffic, and to-go orders that come along with America’s favorite sports game.

Serving Up Fan Favorites

As families and friends gather around the TV, chicken wings are known to be the star player in many game-day traditions. From hosting viewing parties, to fantasy football leagues, nothing goes together quite like football and chicken wings. In fact, according to the National Chicken Wing Council, Americans were estimated to consume 1.42 billion wings during the 2022 Super Bowl!

Wing Zone makes it both efficient and delicious for everyone to enjoy wings. At Wing Zone, customers may order individual meals, snacks or feasts catered to their needs. Franchise partners reap the benefits of busy game nights, as their locations offer Tailgater Combo Packs, Wings or Tenders for a Crowd or Veggie Trays for a crowd. With dozens of combinations of sauces and spices to choose from and 18 award-winning flavors, guests know they can count on Wing Zone to feed all their fellow football fans.

Plus, with Wing Zone’s “flavor really fast” promise, easy online ordering and customer rewards, customer loyalty has never been higher.

Bringing on the Foot Traffic

For those looking to pick up some grub on the way to watch the big game, Wing Zone’s new and enhanced customer experience will prove vital. With Artificial Intelligence designed to stimulate each of a customer’s senses, new back-of-house technology to serve up Flavor Really Fast and a sleek, updated store design, customers will experience Wing Zone like never before, this football season.

By implementing self-order kiosks, pick-up cubbies and Flippy 2 robotic fry cook stations, franchise partners are combatting the labor shortage and offering added convenience for on-premises dining and pickup orders so fans won’t have to worry about missing kickoff.

Scoring Big with A Consistent Supply Chain & Delivery Services

Football season means an increased demand for fresh and sizzling wings and a spike in sales, as viewers across the nation get ready to place substantial wing orders on game day. While many in the restaurant industry are struggling with supply chain shortages, Wing Zone’s established relationships with our vendors give us a strong competitive advantage.

Our investment in technology also sets us apart, as ArrowStream has allowed us to diligently track inventory and related expenses. Wing Zone has the upper-hand on maintaining successful vendor partnerships that ensure both customers and franchise partners are always winning.

Delivery services allow customers to order, during the big game, without missing any of the game’s pivotal moments. By partnering with third-party delivery services like UberEats, GrubHub and DoorDash, Wing Zone owners can capitalize on our flexible models and busiest months.

Given the dedication of our franchise partners, technology advancements, impressive supply chain, and longstanding vendor partnerships, Wing Zone guarantees that our beloved chicken wings make it across the finish line and always to your door.

Get in On All the Action

Since Wing Zone was acquired by Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop at the end of 2020, new growth has skyrocketed with 130 locations added to the development pipeline. The beloved chicken wing brand has taken “long drives” toward its goal of reaching 250 units producing $1 million per year.
