As the name suggests, wings—mild, medium, hot, House on Fire, Dallas (served with a honey-barbecue sauce) and Naked (skinless and baked)—are the order of the day at this casual sports bar complete with WingHouse Girls and TVs everywhere you turn. Founder, CEO and former NFL star Crawford Ker attributes the chain’s success to its mission of being “brilliant at the basics.” He expects to add at least three to four new units annually.
