Wingstop Opening Locations in Medford and East Boston
Nearly eight years after first reporting about it, a Texas-based chicken wing chain will finally be bringing its first locations to the Boston area.
An email sent today indicates that Wingstop plans to open shops in Medford and East Boston, with the former opening this Wednesday at the Fellsway Plaza and the latter coming this fall to Central Square. Based on the other locations of the chain, expect to see wings, boneless wings, and chicken tenders with a wide variety of sauces offered.
Back in late 2008, we had mentioned that Wingstop--which is headquartered in Dallas--had signed franchise agreements to open a couple of locations in the Boston area. Currently, the only three shops in New England can be found in Hartford, Storrs, and Vernon, CT.
The website for Wingstop is at http://www.wingstop.com/
[November 15 update: A Twitter post sent from the place indicates that the East Boston location of Wingstop will open on Wednesday, November 16, making this the second shop to open in the local area (the other opening in Medford over the summer, as mentioned above).]
