Winger's Grill & Bar Opens New Location In Klamath Falls, Ore.
April 02, 2007 // Franchising.com // Salt Lake City — Winger's Grill and Bar, with locations throughout the U.S. and Germany, announced today the grand opening of its newest location in Klamath Falls, Oregon. This is the first of multiple new Winger's Grill & Bar restaurants the franchisee, WingNutz, LLC, plans to open throughout Oregon.
The Klamath Falls location marks restaurant number 37 in the Winger's family. The newly built restaurant, located at 3430 Washburn Way, is an open-to-all ages facility. Housed in a 4500-square-foot building, the new restaurant features a traditional dining room and a separate full-service bar with big-screen TVs surrounding the room and high-end sound system. Winger's Grill & Bar employees around 75 people in Klamath Falls.
"We know that when people try the food and experience the atmosphere they'll fall in love with Winger's — just like we did," said Ray Schaeffer, owner of WingNutz, LLC and general manager. "There's a great buzz in the community surrounding our grand opening, and we are confident that the new restaurant will be a hit among the many families and residents of Klamath Falls."
As part of the grand opening celebration, Winger's raised over $1,200 for the Klamath Crisis Center at a pre opening event and approximately $1,500 for the Akins Family (a Winger's employee with a child in need of expensive medical care).
Winger's USA, Inc. has another franchised location in the state in Ontario, Oregon. WingNutz, LLC plans on opening locations in other Oregon cities, including Medford, Bend, Eugene, and Corvallis, among others.
"We are thrilled to have Ray and his wife Karen as part of the Winger's family," Eric Slaymaker, president of Winger's USA said. "And we are confident that Winger's will become extremely popular among the residents of Klamath Falls."
Winger's Grill & Bar offers a full-range menu, including entrees, sandwiches, salads, burgers, desserts, full-service bar, and of course, Winger's world-famous wings and sticky fingers. Winger's signature Original Amazing Sauce can be purchased at any Winger's restaurant and can be shipped world-wide via special order on the website at www.wingers.info.
