December 6, 2005 - Wingstop has moved their corporate headquarters and training center from Garland, Texas to 1101 E. Arapaho Rd., Suite 150 in Richardson 75081. The move was complete Dec. 2.
“We are pleased to have Wingstop select the City of Richardson as the new location of their corporate headquarters,” said Gary Slagel, mayor of Richardson. “We have had a number of economic development successes recently and are proud to add Wingstop to our list of distinguished corporate residents. They are continually recognized as a growth leader in the restaurant industry and as one of the leading franchises in the nation. We are happy to welcome Wingstop to Richardson.”
Wingstop will occupy 17,559 sq. ft. on the first floor of the building. Built in the early 1980s by Vantage Companies, the multi-tenant building is currently undergoing a $4 million renovation by RREEF. Wingstop’s phone number, 972-686-6500, will remain the same.
“2005 has been an incredible year for Wingstop,” said James Flynn, Wingstop CEO. “We opened our 250th location, hit the $100 million sales milestone, have had nine consecutive quarters of comp store sales increases and were selected the Festival Favorite at the National Buffalo Wing Festival. Relocating to the larger, beautifully renovated space in Richardson is an excellent way to help wrap up 2005 and kick off 2006.”
Wingstop offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. The chain features nine proprietary wing flavors, including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mild, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan, and our new Hickory Smoked BBQ. The wings are always made-to-order and served steaming hot. Customers also choose from homemade side dishes: fresh-cut seasoned fries, bourbon baked beans, pearl potato salad, creamy cole slaw, vegetable sticks, rolls and assorted dipping sauces.
Wingstop has more than 400 restaurants either open or under development in 26 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. Wingstop was chosen Festival Favorite Restaurant at the 2005 National Buffalo Wing Festival and their Cajun sauce took first place honors for the Best Creative Spicy Sauce in the festival’s blind taste test. In July 2005, Wingstop ranked number 13 in Restaurant Business’ Top 50 Growth Chains (ranked by percentage increase in units) and was ranked the number one chicken wing chain by Entrepreneur magazine in 2004 and 2005. Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboy and three-time Super Bowl champion, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
