Wild Wing Cafe
The secret sauce for this growth-minded concept is a unique business model that focuses on quality food and live music—an entertaining and engaging departure from the sports bar genre that has defined virtually every other wing brand.
Franchisees also benefit from a stellar management team that includes Bill Prather, who was named CEO last year.
"Several major artists have performed on our stages and we provide a great venue for up-and-coming artists," says Prather. "We mostly focus on local artists, but we have a talent agent who puts together an entertainment package for our entire system."
Wild Wing Café recently introduced a new prototype and operational improvements such as moving the bar closer to outdoor patios, and an ergonomic focus in the kitchen to improve the efficiency of labor and energy resources.
