East Coast Wings Franchise

East Coast Wings is a franchise for a restaurant with casual dining in full and counter service. It was founded in June of 1995 in a shopping center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Its initial concept was to introduce buffalo style wings in multiple flavours.

Customers quickly adapted to it so then in 2000, a couple of restaurateurs purchased the East Coast Wings brand. They realized that there are not a lot of buffalo style restaurants in America that concentrated on the food rather than the beer and other alcoholic drinks on a bar concept. They wanted to attract families. They designed the restaurant to appear warm. In 2002, they started franchising. Their wings became famous for being the best in North Carolina. They won the “War of the Wings” in 2003 and High Point Enterprise in 2003-2009. They also won North Carolina’s “Best Wings” in 2005 and 2006.
