What happens when you combine chicken wings and sandwiches?
This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast A Deeper Dive features David Bloom, chief operating and development officer for Capriotti’s, a Las Vegas chain of sandwich shops.
Capriotti’s acquired Wing Zone in 2021. Capriotti’s operates 175 locations. Wing Zone now operates 61.
Bloom talks about that combination and what the company saw in Wing Zone and how it has integrated that chain into its system. He also discusses both chains’ growth plans, as well as its overall franchising strategy. Both brands have strategies in place to ramp up unit growth in the coming years.
We talk about plenty of other things, including commodities and why Capriotti’s sometimes has to hoard stuffing.
We’re talking sandwiches, wings and stuffing on A Deeper Dive, so please have a listen.
