RICHARDSON, Texas – Wingstop today announced it has opened its first location in Queens, N.Y. The store, located at 31-14 Steinway Street in Astoria, is owned and operated by franchise
owner Mac Khahera.
With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken wings, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings sauced and tossed in nine proprietary flavors including Original Hot, Lemon Pepper and Garlic Parmesan, and side dishes like fresh-cut, seasoned fries.
"Wingstop keeps the menu simple,” said Queens-native Khahera. "This is a great neighborhood and the perfect spot for the first Wingstop in New York. It’s a very exciting opportunity to get involved with Wingstop just as the company is starting to break ground in New York and I wanted to be part of that.”
In addition to Queens, the company recently signed a development agreement with Constanze Han for two stores in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Founded in Texas in 1994, Wingstop currently has 470 stores open nationwide and in Mexico, with plans to open an additional 75 stores in the Northeast. The company has experienced more than seven consecutive years of same store sales, and has awarded “best wing” accolades by top outlets across the country.
