Hurricane Grill & Wings Signs Franchisee For Kansas Development

Tropical-Themed Casual Dining Franchise To Open Eight Kansas Locations

November 16, 2015 // // WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Hurricane Grill & Wings®, a beach-themed full service restaurant franchise, that is the industry leader for creating innovative flavor combinations, announced today the signing of a new development agreement that will bring the concept to Kansas.

CRAVE Management, led by local businessman and developer Austin Kinzle, will bring eight Hurricane Grill & Wings locations to the Wichita, Overland Park and Kansas City area, making it the initial push into Kansas. Kinzle and Crave Management are working at a rapid pace on the development of their first Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurant, slated to open 2016.

For 20 years, Hurricane Grill & Wings has prided itself on offering guests fresh jumbo wings with more than 35 signature flavors of sauces and rubs. With selections ranging from sweet and spicy to classic buffalo to an array of unique options that include: Maple Pepper, Chipotle Raspberry BBQ and Gold Rush with heat intensity that ranges from Calm Seas to Evacuation Route, there is something to satisfy any palate. Additionally, guests can customize their own burgers using the Build-A-Burger menu feature, including a variety of savory toppings and sauces.

“Hurricane Grill & Wings is dedicated to bringing our fun, beach atmosphere and innovative flavor combinations to people all over the country,” Kevin Kruse, chief development officer of Hurricane Grill & Wings. “With Kinzle’s development knowledge and business experience, we are confident that CRAVE Management will bring a remarkable dining experience to Kansas and exceed residents’ expectations.”

“We were drawn to Hurricane Grill and Wings’ fresh and flavorful food because it’s so unique and something that doesn’t currently exist in Kansas,” said Austin Kinzle, lead developer of CRAVE Management. “We’re elated to bring its laidback and tropical experience to Midwesterners.”

Hurricane Grill & Wings has experienced substantial national growth in 2015 with expansions in Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland and Texas. The concept will end the year with developments for the first time in Oklahoma, California and Europe.
