TORONTO — Wingstop Inc. will host a grand opening celebration at its first Canadian restaurant in Toronto on June 29. The restaurant at 2218 Bloor St. W. marks the first of 100 restaurants planned for Wingstop’s footprint in Canada.
Founded in Texas, Wingstop offers classic and boneless wings and crispy tenders tossed in a choice of the brand’s 12 signature flavours, including sweet, savoury and spicy varieties. Wingstop’s simple menu also features seasoned fries, signature sides and scratch-made ranch and blue cheese dips.
The grand opening will begin at 11 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a performance by acclaimed beatboxer and winner of Canada’s Got Talent, Scott Jackson. The first 100 guests will win five free wings each week for one year.
“Our first restaurant opening in Canada is a proof point of Wingstop’s success and portability outside the U.S., where our brand has experienced so much success,” says Nicolas Boudet, Wingstop’s president of International. “Wingstop’s vision is to become a top 10 global restaurant brand and has a clear pathway to more than 7,000 global restaurants, where Canada is a key part of our international growth strategy. Wingstop’s ability to deliver an unparalleled guest and flavour experience gives us confidence in our brand’s potential in Canada.”
