Celebrating National Chicken Wing Day: Where to score free wings and more

Restaurant chains are using the day to steer customers to their mobile apps, with a variety of deals for free traditional and boneless wings.

Behind the Menu: The fast-casual chain transforms its iconic rotisserie chicken into bite-size portions, positioning them as healthier nuggets.

The former Wingstop chief executive called the salad restaurant chain “the QSR industry’s best-kept secret” and nominated himself for the position.

The chicken chain, which generated success with its chicken sandwich last year, is serving nuggets made with its Original Recipe in Charlotte.

Depending on when a replacement is hired, though, it could be many months before Lozano leaves the 481-unit chicken chain.

Taste Tracker: Chicken in new guises at BWW, Slim Chickens and Toppers; Mooyah, Auntie Anne’s and Smashburger shake it up; refreshing thirst-quenchers for Starbucks, Dunkin’ and Charleys; and everything from cocktails to concretes to cookies make their debut.

A Deeper Dive: Charleys Philly Steaks President Candra Alisiswanto joins the podcast to talk about the company’s growth strategy and its new stand-alone locations.

The company is opening a location this month in Toronto, one of 100 planned for the country as the chicken wing chain pushes international growth more aggressively.

The acquisition will create one of the country’s largest privately held quick-service companies, parent MB International Brands said.
