UK: Popular Wings chains announces ambitious expansion plans

Press Release

WNGZ, the famed quick service restaurant (QSR) chain specialising in chicken wings, has outlined their ambition to expand to 100 stores in the next two years across the nation.

Established in late 2021, WNGZ currently has four outlets in Poplar, Clapton, Camden, and Mile End with each new branch has quickly become a popular go-to destination for the locals.

Zahirul Islam & Arif Ahmed

The brand was co-founded by Arif Ahmed & Zahirul Islam who spotted a gap in the market for local Halal and American-style grilled and fried chicken wings. The duo set about fulfilling the demands of the UK’s wing lovers and catering to a wide selection of customers, with their house sauces being the hero.

Arif who serves as Operations Director, brings his extensive real estate background to the table, ensuring that WNGZ outlets are situated in prime locations with plenty of local foodies looking to try something new.

Zahirul serves as Finance & Legal Director, utilising his expertise in business and exports to drive profitability and sustainable growth for the brand.

After great success for their London locations, Arif & Zahirul look to use their combined knowledge to propel WNGZ towards being one of the biggest and most popular chicken-based QSR brands in the UK.

The wings come in portions of 6, 8, 12 & 24 accompanied by one of WNGZ’s delectable and irresistible 8 signature sauces. They also have burgers, loaded fries and shakes as part of their menu. Their menu also caters to all diets, from being certified Halal and offering vegan options like cauliflower etc.

They have a unique décor bringing in a mix of colours you’d usually find in urban setting into their restaurants. Each restaurant has its own identity and has the classic American style of décor.

WNGZ is on the lookout for individuals to join their franchise family!

With a pipeline of stores already planned for 2024/25, we are on the lookout for like-minded professionals looking to open their first franchise or expand their current franchise portfolio.
