FranchiseWorks.com | Chicken Wing Franchise Wingstop Named Official Wings of the Los Angeles Lakers. High-flying chicken wing franchise chain announces three-year corporate sponsorship with Los Angeles Lakers.

RICHARDSON, Texas – (Nov. 2010) – The Los Angeles Lakers and Wingstop, the chicken wing franchise chain that has sold over 2 Billion wings, announced a sponsorship today in which Wingstop will be the Official Wings Of The Los Angeles Lakers.

The three-year agreement gives Wingstop name and logo rights for use in advertising materials, placement on the Lakers website, and promotional display mentions on the STAPLES Center LED signage during all Lakers regular season home games.

A specially designed Wingstop - Los Angeles Lakers logo will be featured on bags, cups and in-store materials in more than 50 Wingstop locations throughout Southern California including Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties.

The sponsorship will be supported with live and produced spots in English and Spanish on KSPN-AM, KWKW-AM and a new television spot to air on Fox Sports, KCAL-TV, KTLA-TV among others.

In addition, Wingstop will introduce a season-long promotion that encourages all fans to sign up to receive mobile coupons from Wingstop. With every Lakers victory on the road, subscribers will receive a special offer at participating locations.

“Wingstop and the Lakers have some of the most dedicated and loyal fans in Southern California and we are excited about the opportunity to bring those fans together,” said Danny Sonenshine, president of the Wingstop Southern California Advertising Association. “We think it’s the perfect partnership.”

“We are pleased to announce our new relationship with Wingstop as we begin an exciting season defending our title,” said Tim Harris, Sr. Vice President, Business Operations, Chief Marketing Officer, of the Los Angeles Lakers.  “The Wingstop brand is a great fit with the Lakers organization and we are pleased to have them join our team. We look forward to working with them in the seasons to come.”

Wingstop opened its first Los Angeles location in 2002 and has grown to more than 50 stores in the Southern California area and 100 stores in the state.

The company, which is based in Richardson, Texas, has a strong history with professional sports. Wingstop was named the Official Wings of the Dallas Cowboys and the Preferred Wings of the Houston Texans in 2009. Former Hall of Fame quarterback and current Fox sportscaster Troy Aikman has been the company’s spokesman since 2003.
