Wingers opened in Bountiful, Utah in 1993 debuting in a small 2800 sf diner building, and quickly became known for our legendary Original Wings, craft food, and our Original Wingers Sauce. Over the next couple of decades, Wingers grew into a small and popular regional brand in the intermountain area, but declined to move into other territories. In 2016, Wingers rebranded the first WINGERS ALEHOUSE location in the Boise, Idaho area, added a significant number of new beers on tap, and immediately sales grew by almost 60%, and have continued to grow. Wingers has just now begun to offer new franchise territories in the midwestern US, with a focus on small and mid-sized markets, which we consider our "bread and butter" strategy.
