Chicken chain Wingstop coming to Cincinnati area

CINCINNATI -- Wingstop, a 570-unit chicken wing chain, has signed a four-store development agreement to open restaurants throughout the Cincinnati area.

The agreement is with the company Los Pollos Hermanos, LLC, which is comprised of longtime business partners and Cincinnati residents, Maurice Vilaboy and John Wacker.

"Being a native of Cincinnati, I wanted to bring together two things that locals love – homemade food and chicken wings," said Vilaboy in a press release. "We didn't want to open another sandwich shop or burger place, and with Wingstop we found a concept with fresh, made-to-order wings and awesome homemade sides."

Wingstop, which is based in Texas, has one restaurant in Cleveland and one in Columbus.

Wacker said his company is currently looking at sites in the Western Hills area and plan to open their first Cincinnati Wingstop location this fall.

Wingstop's menu features classic and boneless wings, chicken strips, Glider sandwiches, homemade side dishes like fresh-cut seasoned fries, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, veggie sticks and house made ranch and bleu cheese dips.
