Better Wings. Better Sandwiches. A Better Chicken Concept, Period.
Consumers favor brands that offer simple choices, an easy-to-use digital/mobile experience, and an unwavering focus on hospitality. If that sounds like your kind of concept, let's talk.
BUILDING A BETTER WING CONCEPT
At Wing It On! we savor the flavor of franchise growth. After stepping onto the scene in 2011, we’ve successfully grown from our original roots in the northeast to expand across the eastern U.S. and are rapidly pushing into new markets with our great-tasting product and industry-leading digital experience.
Our unique approach sets us apart from other QSR & fast-casual chicken concepts. With our simplified, innovative menu offerings, our fans experience starts with an authentic, Buffalo-quality wing cooked then sauced or seasoned to perfection with our proprietary blend. More than just great wings, our fans can expect an assortment of hand-crafted chicken sandwiches & boneless tenders that are fresh, never frozen, and made to order.
The attractiveness of our delicious wings n wiches franchise model is enhanced with our agile and efficient store footprints. Takeout and delivery, on average, drive between 85-90% of store revenues, meaning overhead is kept low with just a small portion of the restaurant reserved for dine-in. Locations can range from 1,000 square ft. up to 1,700 square ft.
As we continue our mission to make Wing It On! the go-to joint for the best wings n wiches, we’re looking for the right partners to join our journey. If you think you've got what it takes, we'd love to hear from you.

A History of Authenticity
Wing It On! founder Matt Ensero stepped onto the scene in 2011 with one goal in mind, to resurrect the take-out Buffalo wing from the ashes of mediocrity. His quest was to serve insanely delicious wings, whether you're picking up, getting delivery or stopping by for a quick lunch.
So, he built a team and together they obsessed over every detail from the quality and authenticity of the sauces and dry rubs right down to the "chunkiness" of the store-made blue cheese. Once the wing was perfected, the team turned their attention to crafting a best in class chicken sandwich experience. Thus the "Wings n Wiches" concept was born. The result is a truly epic Buffalo-quality wing and hand-crafted "wich" experience served fast and fresh every time.
