The Wing Warehouse is a traditional casual-dining concept featuring a varied menu of classic sports-bar fare, including 44 wing flavors and 29 draft beers. Drink specials, in-restaurant games and events, and live music all help the concept appeal to a wide demo- graphic. WW Systems LLC owns The Wing Warehouse, as well as the Scorchers brand. Franchising is available. Units are generally freestanding and measure up to about 5,800 square feet. Darrell Guariniello founded The Wing Warehouse in Ohio in 2001. The concept originally operated in a fast-casual format where patrons ordered bar-style food at a counter and had it delivered to their tables. In 2005, the concept turned into a full-service restaurant. In late 2009, Guariniello’s WW Systems LLC purchased a competitor chain called Scorchers and began to merge it with The Wing Warehouse brand. All units operating under the Scorchers banner are expected to be converted to The Wing Warehouse banner over time.
