Wings Etc. Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


Since 1994, Wings Etc. has been voted "Best Wings" in the South Bend Tribune's annual "Reader's Choice" awards. "Wings" is in our name, and wings are a significant part of our menu mix. Our famous fresh, tender-crisp jumbo wings and 34-ounce, ice cold Schooners have been a market-differentiating "one-two punch." As we have grown and bar & grill patron tastes have changed, we have added equally important menu categories including gourmet burgers, grilled sandwiches & subs, quesadillas, seafood, smoked ribs, entr?e salads and a memorable appetizer lineup led by our "Ultimate Nachos," a platter-sized salute to everything people love about watching sports, enjoying friends and family, and getting great value for their hard-earned money. In addition to food and drink, we sell a collection of humorous, sometimes-edgy t-shirts that are proudly worn by staff members, and by guests and visitors near and far.
