A HISTORY Of authenticity
Wing It On! founder Matt Ensero stepped onto the scene in 2011 with one goal in mind, to resurrect the Buffalo wing from the ashes of mediocrity. His quest was to serve insanely delicious wings, whether you're dining in, picking up, or ordering online. So, he built a team and together they obsessed over every detail from the quality of the sauces and dry rubs right down to the "chunkiness" of the store-made blue cheese. The result is a truly epic Buffalo-quality wing experience served fast and fresh every time. Here's some recent awards to prove it.

The Wing It On! team will be there for you every step of the way, including choosing a location, store design and build-out, developing and executing a pre-launch marketing plan, and post-launch operational support.
