Wings To Go - Simply Great Wings Since 1985!
A cliché commonly used when starting a wing business is “We started on a wing and a prayer”, here at Wings To Go, we like to tell folks we started with some wings wanting to answer the prayers of homesick Buffalonians stationed at Dover Air Force base in Delaware.
The summer of 1985 marked the opening of the first Wings To Go opposite Dover Air Force base, our wings were an instant hit with those serving our country but to our surprise we were pulling our greatest crowd from the nearby beaches!
As this demand grew, Wings To Go responded by opening locations in Dewey Beach and Wilmington Delaware. By the end of our third year there were five Wings To Go locations and five degrees of wing sauces to choose from; mild, medium, hot, extra hot and our famous suicide. Since then Wings To Go has added our now legendary and trademarked scorcher…Homicide® a sauce known to make the bravest wing eater cry!
By 1989 Wings To Go began franchising and the company started to steadily grow. There are now over 40 Wings To Go restaurants across the South, Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.
