Frank’s RedHot Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Buffalo Wings

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Buffalo hot wing. To celebrate, The French’s Food Company and Frank’s RedHot are giving restaurant operators a chance to win a custom motorcycle and tons of other prizes.

The “Show Your Pride Win the Ride” photo contest encourages restaurant operators to enter a photo showing what they love about Frank’s RedHot. Photos can be entered at or by uploading pictures to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #franksredhot50.

In 1964, a restaurant in Buffalo, New York, made Frank’s RedHot the secret ingredient in its first hot wing recipe. Buffalo wings were an instant hit, and Frank’s RedHot earned the title of the original Buffalo sauce. Today, patrons consume more than 13 billion wings year.
