Wing Zone INFO
About Wing Zone
Wing Zone was founded in 1991 at the University of Florida by Matt Friedman and Adam Scott, who dubbed themselves Flavorholics because of their love of great wings and amazing flavors. The Wing Zone franchise was born in their fraternity house kitchen, and the concept quickly flourished through delivery to their fellow college students. After opening several more Wing Zone locations in college markets across the country, Scott and Friedman began offering franchises in 2000. Wing Zone now has nearly 100 locations open across the U.S. and a strong international presence, including Panama, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Malabo, Singapore and Guatemala.

Why Wing Zone?
Our biggest differentiator is our focus on delivery. Wing Zone has been in the delivery business for 25 years. Everyone says they are in it now, but we really lived it.
We’re also founder-driven and founder-owned. That’s a relevant distinction that doesn’t exist in many places today. We also stand out through the variety of our different flavors. We currently have 17 flavors, including 14 traditional flavors and three flavor rubs. Our approach to the research, development and innovation of flavors is crucial for us.
Wing Zone is a great investment because we offer exclusivity and the ability to develop a market. That’s an attractive opportunity for a lot of franchisees.
Ultimately, we’re in a somewhat non-competitive space. It’s not a sandwich or a make-your-own burrito or pizza concept. When we go into a market, it’s new and innovative, and something our future customers are really excited about.
The overall investment for Wing Zone is one of the lowest in the franchise industry. The average owner can open for around $250,000, and our AUVs are in the $750,000 to $760,000 range. We’re getting franchisees a good sales-to-investment ratio.
