A Truly ‘Grande’ Opening: Wings and Rings Opens New Store in Rio Grande City, Texas

The sports restaurant and bar franchise is celebrating the opening with week-long giveaways, including the chance for the first 84 guests to win free wings for a year.

Wings and Rings, the 85-unit club-level sports restaurant and bar franchise, is officially coming to Rio Grande City with a new location at 4251 E US Hwy 83 on November 7th, 2022.

“We are so excited for this opportunity to bring our crave-worthy wings and rings to Rio Grande City,” said Sr. National Local Store Marketing Manager Danieal Barratt. “We can’t wait to get involved in the community and bring our brand into another amazing city.”

To celebrate the opening, Wings Rings will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the chamber of commerce and representatives from the community. The store will also be hosting giveaways all week long, including a chance for the first 84 customers in line on Monday to receive free wings for a year. Guests are encouraged to follow the Wings and Rings Facebook page to learn more about the specific events for each day. 

The franchise ownership group behind the opening, Victoria Alvarez and Raul Munoz, are natives of the nearby Roma area and are thrilled to bring a new offering to this community. 

“Roma being my hometown, I definitely knew I wanted a location in Starr County so that families could enjoy a nice eatery without having to travel to McAllen,” said Victoria. “It took several years, but I was determined. We want families to experience a nice ambiance, delicious food and, most importantly, we want to be part of the expansion and growth of Starr County. My team is excited to have Wings and Rings in their hometown and we are ready to become part of this amazing community!”

Owning two other Wings and Rings locations in Texas and having recently won Franchisee of the Year, they are the perfect, community-driven entrepreneurs to introduce the Wings and Rings brand to Rio Grande City, Barratt says.

“This is a part of a larger growth strategy for the brand in Texas,” said Barratt. “This will be the 12th Wing and Rings location in Texas, and there are several other locations in the works for the coming years. As we continue to expand our footprint with the help of qualified, passionate franchisees like Victoria and Raul, we can’t wait to introduce our crave-worthy wings and rings and amazing club-level ambiance to more guests throughout Texas and beyond.”
