Planet Wings Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


Planet Wings was founded in 1994 by husband-and-wife team Paula and Franco Fidanza. They wanted to offer a fast-food restaurant that offers everything from salads to burgers and chicken wings.
Since starting their own business more than 20 years ago, Planet Wings has grown to a chain with more than 25 locations, but it continues to maintain the qualities of a family-owned business that got it where it is today.
The owners are still committed to providing a quality experience to all their customers, and that commitment is reflected in their decision to update the brand with a look that is more modern and refined than before.
The brand makes a promise to customers and Planet Wings delivers on that promise by providing delicious, high-quality food the whole family can enjoy.
