I gave my son his choice of places (we’re a wing-savvy family) and his choice was immediate: WingZone.
We headed for the WingZone franchise on Fruitville Pike in Lancaster. They always did a good job, and just celebrated their second anniversary this past October.
Unfortunately, we found a depressing site: a sign in front of WingZone that read “Sorry we are closed. Thanks for all your support.”
I’m not sure why, but wing franchises seem to have a hard time making it in this market.
Several have tried and closed, including a 3 WTG Wings-to-Go franchises that closed a few years back. WOW Wingery & Cafe opened on the F&M Campus recently, and carries on.
Franchisee Brophy was right about the demand for wings in the area, but I think the number of good “wing nights” at local bars and restaurants may be too much competition for the take-out franchise concepts.
R.I.P. WingZone of Lancaster, PA. Believe me, we tried our best to keep you in business. You’ll be missed.
