The 10 most craveable chicken wings at chains

With Super Bowl Sunday fast approaching, where will consumers flock for wings?

Concepts that serve chicken without bones have flourished, taking share at a time when the industry has stumbled, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

More than half of the restaurant industry’s $491 billion in sales come from the Top 500 chains. And these giants grew at a modestly stronger rate, both in terms of sales and store counts, than the industry overall. Restaurant Business focused on the leading 250 performers to identify trends for our first-ever special report delivering lessons from Technomic’s annual Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report. This special package includes lessons for all operators from the largest chains by segment, menu category and more.

A restaurant chain's sales don't always reflect customer satisfaction, and vice versa. Here, we rank the leading limited-service chains using a formula that includes financials, consumer satisfaction and value.

Fried pickles are a popular recurring LTO addition to the made-to-order wings and sauces

Chains ranking highest in their competitive set deliver more than just good food. They’re winning in all aspects of the dining experience, from service to convenience.

The limited-service chicken category overall increased total sales by 8% to $22.2 billion and grew units by 4% to 14,166.

Consumers’ most craved restaurant chicken wings don't only come from wings concepts.
