History

Pizza Hut franchises began offering buffalo chicken wings in 1995. In 2003, Yum! launched WingStreet as a hybrid combo unit with an existing Pizza Hut franchise.[3] In 2007, Pizza Hut/WingStreet opened their 1,000th restaurant. In 2007 and 2008, a thousand WingStreet stores a year were opened. On October 19, 2009, Company president Scott Bergren publicize WingStreet's national launch.[3] The chain predicted aggressive growth, adding more than 4,000 locations by 2010.[4]

Wings

WingStreet restaurants sell breaded and traditional Buffalo wings for take-out and delivery. Their sauces are: Honey Sriracha (new), Sweet Chili (formerly Spicy Asian), Spicy BBQ, Honey BBQ, Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Asian (now called Sweet Chili), and Buffalo (Mild, Medium, and Hot). They also have sauce-free wings called Naked wings.

WingStreet offers three styles of wings: Bone-In, Bone-Out, and Traditional. Both the Bone-In and Bone-Out wings are breaded while the Traditional are not. Neither the Bone-In wings nor the Traditional wings have the bones removed.

In addition to wings the WingStreet brand usually includes extras such as fried cheese sticks, chicken tenders, apple pies, and WingStreet Potato Wedges. Moreover, certain locations may offer curly fries, jalapeno poppers and onion rings.
