Wingers flies high with five new store openings

Wingers – the Chicken Wing Company – is flying high with five new franchised store openings this year including Telford, Watford, West Bridgford, The Taproom in Harborne High Street Birmingham and Birmingham International Train Station. Wingers, which now has eleven shops trading successfully, aims to have 20 stores open in locations across the UK by the end of 2024.

Amran Sunner, co-founder and operations director of Wingers confirms: “The demand for our delicious fresh buttermilk fried chicken continues to grow and we have taken on new franchisees plus all of our existing franchisees are now operating multi-unit sites offering eat-in, take away or delivery. Even our first franchisee who was with us before the brand became well-known, is now looking at a second site.  At the Taproom we have enabled an existing bar to offer their own in-house chicken and our successful site at Birmingham International Train Station has opened up discussions with other major transport operators in the region.”

“Since we initially set up from our dark kitchen during the pandemic in June 2020, it’s been a huge learning curve and a real success story. We now love investing in our brand and supporting all of our franchisees to grow their individual businesses. We have now put all the infrastructure in place including the right team members plus our own in-house marination facility and national marketing to ensure franchisees have everything they need to create a thriving Wingers franchised business of their own.”

“We are now ready to take Wingers to new heights. Our goal is to open 50 stores within the next four years, so we are now looking to work with more QSR professionals and experienced business people to manage our planned pipeline of stores on a franchised basis in key development areas including the North East and North West, on the M1 and M6 corridors and in cities like Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.  We are also looking into expanding in Scotland in Edinburgh and Glasgow.”

Wingers offers a full turn-key offering, comprehensive training and support, simple operation with low staff overheads, a great menu and a low cost of entry. The potential for excellent returns will help your business take off! 

Find out how you can help us satisfy customer demand and spread our wings further by developing your own profitable, franchised Wingers restaurant.
