We also offer many other flavorful options prepared with the same high standards. From fresh garden salads, quesadillas, pork (hog) wings and delicious nachos; to sandwiches, wraps and burgers. At Wing Nutz you’ll know its high quality food made with fresh ingredients and with no added fat or ever deep fried.
The Wing Nutz Culture
In our first 5 years Wing Nutz has opened 6 profitable corporate locations and sold 6 franchise locations.
We opened our first location in September of 2008 right in the thick of the downturn in the economy. People told us we were nuts, but it rocked the neighborhood with lines out the door waiting to try our delicious baked wings.
Wing Nutz owners have a wealth of experience and truly understand that business goes where it is appreciated and stays where it is well treated.
At Wing Nutz we create satisfied and fiercely loyal patrons who are eager to return and share their experience with family and friends. It makes sense to open a business that brings in customers and keeps them coming back by providing amazing food, friendly first name service and great customer experiences.
The typical Wing Nutz is 2000 to 2750 sq. feet and has a solid granite bar as its center piece. Sure, Wing Nutz is about sports with our 120″ projection screen and 360 degree views of our HD televisions from any seat in the house, but we're much more than just sports. Our smaller open footprint was created by our founders on purpose as it allows for a family-fun and friendly atmosphere, and we provide it; with buzz time trivia, golden tee, NTN texas hold'em and entertaining theme nights.
At Wing Nutz we cater to families where kids can play games or color on their own special menu giving Mom & Dad a much needed breather. Additionally, through our “One Wing at a Time Youth Sports Sponsorship Program” we support local youth sports programs and through our annual “Wyld Ride” support local children's charities.
Besides amazing food and sports, Wing Nutz Rewards Program offers returning regular customers the opportunity to receive their own personalized mug and pay less for drinks, as well as earn free food and Wing Nutz gear.
At Wing Nutz, paradise is personal and waiting for you every day.
