Wing’N It, a 6 year old wings restaurant out of Atlantic Canada is making a huge step out west, with a location opening in Grande Prairie later this month.
ALBERTA — Wing’N It is a 6-year-old wings restaurant that serves up over 100 flavors of chicken wings, founded out of Newfoundland and Labrador. Opening the first Wing’N It restaurant St. John’s, the team of four founders have decided to taken on a franchisee residing in Grande Prairie, Alberta, with another location opening up in Red Deer, Alberta later this year.
According to the news release, there are interested franchisees also based out of Fort McMurray and Edmonton, Alberta, so locations may be popping up in these two cities sometime in the near future.
It also makes mention of a location coming up in Red Deer, Alberta. By the sounds of things, the franchisee has been selected, and they’re just looking for a suitable location to build the restaurant.
The restaurant brand now has 10 locations open in the Atlantic provinces, and Grande Prairie’s location will be its 11th.
The restaurant is themed with aviation-type decor, playing on the restaurant’s name itself.
The Grande Prairie location will be opening in the commercial development of Grand Banks on 68th in late-February 2017.
Unsurprisingly enough, all of the contacts that the company has had out of Alberta, have all been Newfoundlanders that moved out here.
To create a brand new restaurant that expands into 10 locations in just 5 years is of course to be considered fairly successful, especially considering it is the restaurant industry.
