Franchise Times: ‘Simple’ Wingstop Opens 1,000th Location

The wing concept defined by its simplicity reached a major milestone.

Franchisee, rapper and entrepreneur Rick Ross, along with his family, opened Wing Stop’s 1,000th location in Atlanta, Georgia. Known for its simplicity, Wing Stop’s success can be attributed to its quality product and focus on technology in regards to online orders. According to Franchise Times, 75 percent of orders from Q3 2016 were takeout.
