Wing Snob, a Sterling Heights-based fast-casual restaurant serving chicken wings, tenders, and more, announced a deal to add 25 new franchise locations throughout Michigan.
Area developers Chintan Patel and Prakash Chaudhari, franchisees who currently own and operate 50 restaurant locations throughout the Midwest, will open 25 Wing Snob locations in Michigan over the next four years. The first locations are currently under construction in New Hudson and East Lansing.
“We’re thrilled to have two experienced operators who share our commitment to the Wing Snob brand join us as we expand our reach across the state,” says Jack Mashini and Brian Shunia, founders of Wing Snob. “Their knowledge of the restaurant industry and key growth markets in Michigan are a tremendous asset to the brand. We look forward to introducing Wing Snob to customers throughout the state and getting better wings in their hands.”
The restaurants offer traditional bone-in wings, boneless wings, chicken tenders, vegetarian-friendly cauliflower wings, crispy chicken mini-sandwiches, fried legs and thighs, sides, and desserts.
The sauces include options such as the maple syrup-based Chicken and Waffles; Awesome Sauce, a honey mustard-based Carolina style barbecue sauce; Garlic Parm, garlic butter sprinkled with parmesan; Snobby Q, the sweet and tangy house barbecue sauce; Buffalo Lemon Pepper, a traditional buffalo sauce sprinkled with lemon pepper; and more.
As Wing Snob continues development into new market areas, the brand provides its multi-unit operators affordable, flexible new-builds or conversion options. While more than 90 percent of sales come from take-out, curbside, and delivery services, Wing Snob also offers traditional dine-in seating. Location footprints approximate 1,500 square-feet — designed with a friendly, casual, welcoming atmosphere.
Wing Snob currently has 22 stores open in Michigan, Ohio, Texas, and Canada, plus an additional 20 in development in Florida.
Opportunities for franchisees, owner/operators, investors, and landlords of second-generation restaurant locations are available. For more information, visit www.wingsnob.com.
