Lynwood, CA, United States, 2006/03/23 - Wingstop, a fast-growing chicken wing franchise known for cooked-to-order wings, opened its first Lynwood, Calif. location on March 20..
Far West Restaurant Group, LLC opened the new location at 10910 Long Beach Blvd. (corner of Long Beach Boulevard and Norton Avenue – just North of Imperial Highway). This is Far West’s third Wingstop, the other two are at 6810 Eastern Ave. in Bell Gardens and 5910 Del Amo Blvd. in Lakewood.

Wingstop’s signature bone-in chicken wings and boneless wings are prepared fresh and are available in nine proprietary flavors. Both types of wings are made-to-order and there are no heat lamps, microwaves or holding bins in the store. Side dishes are made from scratch and prepared daily in each location. Party platters are available for catered events such as office parties, family gatherings and sporting events.
“We are excited to be part of the revitalization efforts in Lynwood,” said Daniel Sonenshine, president of Far West. “The Lynwood residents have made Wingstop feel very welcome in their community. We are continuing to grow and will open a store in Cerritos in a few weeks and an East L.A. location in two and a half months. This rapid expansion would not be possible without the top-notch leadership and expertise of Jorge Ortiz, our vice president of operations, who handles our new store openings and daily operations.”
Wingstop offers restaurants with a nostalgic, aviation-themed atmosphere where the sole focus is on chicken wings. The chain now serves boneless wings that are made from 100 percent all-white meat chicken breast coated with a proprietary batter and breading. Wingstop features nine wing flavors, including Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mild, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan, and Hickory Smoked BBQ. The wings are always made-to-order and served steaming hot. Customers also choose from homemade side dishes: fresh-cut seasoned fries, bourbon baked beans, pearl potato salad, creamy cole slaw, vegetable sticks, rolls and assorted dipping sauces.
Wingstop has more than 450 restaurants either open or under development in 26 states and consistently tops industry growth rankings. Wingstop was chosen Festival Favorite Restaurant at the 2005 National Buffalo Wing Festival and their Cajun sauce took first place honors for the Best Creative Spicy Sauce in the festival’s blind taste test. In July 2005, Wingstop ranked number 13 in Restaurant Business’ Top 50 Growth Chains (ranked by percentage increase in units) and was ranked the number one chicken wing chain by Entrepreneur magazine in 2005. Troy Aikman, three-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame inductee, signed on as the chain’s national spokesman in 2003.
