Wingstop Opens New Company Operated Location in Hometown of Dallas

DALLAS, June 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wingstop, Inc. (NASDAQ:WING), the award-winning wing concept with more than 900 locations worldwide, today announced the opening of their newest location in Dallas. At 1152 North Buckner Boulevard, the new restaurant is located in the historic Casa Linda Plaza in East Dallas.

“We are thrilled to add this new Wingstop to our portfolio of company operated restaurants,” said Luisa Bullard, Vice President of Corporate Operations at Wingstop Inc. “We got our start not too far from this new location in Garland, Texas, all the way back in 1994. Since then, we’ve opened more than 900 restaurants all over the world, but nothing makes us prouder than continuing our growth right here in the Dallas area.”

A high-growth fast-casual concept, Wingstop has recorded 12 consecutive years of positive same store sales growth and experienced a record year for new restaurant openings in 2015, with the opening of 133 net new locations. The last corporate-owned Wingstop was opened in 2013 in Las Vegas. Since then, the company has prioritized franchise growth and emerging market development. In May, Wingstop celebrated the opening of their 900th location worldwide.

With a singular focus on wings, fries and sides, the Wingstop menu features bone-in and boneless chicken wings, as well as chicken tenders, all sauced and tossed in 11 bold, distinctive and craveable flavors including fan favorites: Mango Habanero, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan and Original Hot. Wingstop’s distinct, layered flavors pair well with their freshly-prepared sides, which include their hand-cut, seasoned fries, crafted from carefully-selected whole Russet potatoes.
