About Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse

The first Wingers location opened with a mouthwatering family wing recipe and quickly grew into an iconic fan favorite. Nearly 30 years later, Wingers has become one of the hottest franchise concepts in the country. At Wingers, our world-famous wings and Sticky Fingers, coated in our signature Original Amazing Sauce, along with an impressive line-up of craft beer on tap, has proven to be a franchise concept with extraordinary growth potential.

At Wingers, we serve our award-winning food and craft beers in contemporary full-service locations that are designed to prosper in both metro areas and small to mid-sized markets. Our franchise opportunity offers streamlined operations, enhanced technologies and tactical business strategies that are backed by our skilled support teams.

Wingers is growing fast and we currently have 25 locations in five states. We are seeking franchise partners who are passionate about bringing world-famous wings to new markets, such as Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, and the Midwest.
