When Atomic Wings CEO Zak Omar meets with potential franchisees, he lets them know he’s been in their shoes. Before he purchased the company in 2016 from founder Adam Lippin, Omar was a multi-unit Dunkin’ franchisee, but he had always remained interested in Atomic Wings.

“During my time on Wall Street, working in a corporate job, we’d always order from a brand called Atomic Wings,” Omar said. “We loved their product and the flavor profile.”

Omar contacted Lippin, who founded Atomic Wings in 1989, and after a series of discussions, made the move to purchase the brand. Today, Atomic Wings has 21 units in New York and Maryland.
