Looking for the next Chipotle? These 3 chains are already there

The Bottom Line: Wingstop, Raising Cane’s and Jersey Mike’s have broken free from the pack of well-established growth chains. Here’s why this trio stands out.


Wingstop is doing great. Here's how CEO Michael Skipworth says the chicken chain can do even better

After a strong first quarter, Dallas-based Wingstop expects double-digit same-store sales growth this year, as it plans on becoming a Top 10 global restaurant brand.

The Bottom Line: The two fast-food chains are increasingly going head-to-head over chicken sandwiches and chicken wings.

A Deeper Dive: Michael Skipworth, CEO of the chicken chain, joins the Restaurant Business podcast to discuss wings, chicken sandwiches and technology.

A Deeper Dive: The chief executive of the fast-casual chicken wing chain talks about how his restaurant chain solved the wing cost problem, how chicken sandwiches transformed the business, and the prospects for going 100% digital.

The Bottom Line: The fast-casual wing chain says its sales improve when another brand pushes the product. Here’s why that might be.

The chicken wing chain’s system sales soared 27% last year as customers flocked to its restaurants for sandwiches and wings. But its stock price declined.

Chris Fallon, who previously worked in tech at Starbucks, is the Dallas-based chain's new SVP and CIO.

Tech Check: The chain has been a digital juggernaut for years. It apparently believes it can do better with a homegrown system.

The news sent Olo’s stock plummeting early Tuesday, though executives said it will have little impact on the business.
