Why Wings Etc.?

Our Sports Bar Franchise Is Unlike Any Other

If you’re looking to open your own business, you may be wondering why Wings Etc. is the best option for you. Great question. We like people who do their homework. Especially because we think we are the best choice in the foodservice industry and are confident that you’ll be excited to become a part of our brand after you have a full understanding of what we’re all about.

For over 20 years now, we have been making our presence known in the foodservice scene. The sports bar used to simply be a bar with a TV in the corner. Today, they are so much more. Sports bars drive growth among full-service and family-style restaurant chains, and regular bars and restaurants are struggling to catch up to the sports bar momentum.

You should franchise with Wings Etc. because:

  1. Among full-service bar and restaurant models, we have one of the lowest startup and break-even business models
  2. There’s no need to try to convince people to try our food because our core menu items, like wings, burgers, wraps, and salads, are already surging in popularity
  3. We continue to expand into a wide range of retail spaces, market types, and market sizes
  4. We are memorable, we are distinctive, and we are NOT just another sports bar
  5. Many of our franchisees (20%) own multiple units, and many of our locations (31%) are company-owned and operated, continuing our franchisee and corporate ownership “buy-in.”

Looking Ahead

Since 1994, our chicken wing franchise has solidified an extraordinary brand position in our home market. In just a few years, we’ve been able to expand into nearby markets and have gone up against some larger full-service sports bar chains. We have shown them that Wings Etc. offers a more relaxed, fun, and uniquely original sports bar experience.

Wings Etc. was also named a Top 100 Fastest-Growing Franchise by Franchise Gator and we look forward to continuing this expansion with the help of our new owners.

We continue to make a name for ourselves with:

  • Strong competitive advantages
  • Simple operations
  • Diverse menu options
  • Daily food and drink specials
  • Memorable marketing tactics

Convinced we are the best sports bar franchise in town? Perfect. That was our intention. Now head on over to our Steps to Ownership page to take the first step.
