Wingstop, a Dallas-based chain of chicken-wing restaurants, will debut its first Connecticut locations in the next several weeks, the company announced Monday.
The first Wingstop will open Wednesday, April 15, at 550 Farmington Ave. in Hartford, followed by a Vernon restaurant at 35 Talcottville Road, which is planned for a mid-May opening. Local franchisees Matthew Rusconi and David Vorchheimer also plan to open a third Wingstop in Storrs later this year.
Wingstop's menu features classic and boneless-style chicken wings and strips in a variety of sauce flavors, including Cajun, teriyaki, mango habanero, garlic Parmesan, lemon pepper, serrano pepper glaze and hickory smoked BBQ. Sides include seasoned fries, bourbon baked beans, veggie sticks, yeast rolls and potato salad.
Wingstop has 720 restaurants in the United States and abroad in Mexico, Russia, Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia, with locations opening soon in United Arab Emirates.
The Hartford and Vernon Wingstops will be open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight. Information: wingstop.com.
