East Coast Wings was founded in June 1995 in a small 1,600 square foot shopping center space in Winston-Salem, NC. The founders had introduced a conce.. read morept of multiple flavors of buffalo style wings, with a limited variety of sandwiches. The local patrons quickly adapted to the unique style of Buffalo wings.
In the year 2000, two restaurant entrepreneurs with a combined 36 years of experience, bought the East Coast Wings brand. They quickly moved and re-tooled the East Coast Wings concept and its menu. They realized that there are not many buffalo style restaurants in America that offer a casual full service buffalo wing restaurant that concentrated on the food part of the menu verses pushing beer sales, or the bar concept. With the intention to deliver an atmosphere where anyone, including families, could enjoy the famous East Coast Wings style buffalo wings, they decided to design a warm décor and trim back the bar atmosphere, creating the new East Coast Wings & Grill that is known today.
With the new and fresh changes, people poured in the doors to see and try the unique blend of 75 flavors of buffalo style wings, and the business nearly doubled from the acquisition year of 2000. The entrepreneurs knew that they had delivered a unique buffalo wing style restaurant. In 2002, they began the building process for franchising their newly found, re-tooled and definitely a hit with patrons, Buffalo wings and variety menu concept.
