Wingstop earnings get a boost from lower chicken costs

Domestic same-store sales were up 6.9%, mostly on increased transactions, and the fast-casual chain sees room for growth with new sandwiches and expansion of delivery.

The focused promotion appears less likely to cause a shortage and is designed to bolster excitement in new market.

The fast-casual chain first launched the sandwiches in 12 flavors earlier this year, but ran out in less than a week. Now they’re trying again.

Shortages after social media-fueled demand are becoming more common. Is it strategy?

The chain is joining Uber Eats and expanding chicken sandwiches nationwide after same-store sales fell 3.3%.

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

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 wing chain, turning a viral tweet into reality, created custom sneakers with its green-and-white colors and winged logo. It’s giving them away on social media.

The chain’s 11 sauces are a differentiator in the wing space and social media fans like to mix them up.
