Eric and Scott Slaymaker were no newcomers to franchising when they opened Winger’s in 1993; the brothers had already owned T.G.I. Friday’s and Tony Roma’s restaurants. They opened their first Winger’s in Bountiful, Utah, inside a 1940s Pullman car, where they upgraded chicken wings from an appetizer to an entree.
