In 1988, two University of Georgia students, Hughes Lowrance and Jamey Loftin, invested $10,000 in an existing Athens, Georgia, convenience store to sell sandwiches, milk, toilet paper and other basics to college students. Today, all 10 original sandwiches remain on the menu. The chain goes through 1.5 million pounds of chicken wings each year.
