Wingstop Debuts Glider Sandwiches

New menu item available for a limited-time nationwide

April 18, 2011 // Franchising.com // RICHARDSON, Texas – Now that they have perfected the chicken wing, Wingstop is taking on the chicken sandwich. The national chain that specializes in made-to-order chicken wings, is expanding its menu to include its original version of the chicken sandwich – Gliders.

Made with a three-ounce boneless, all white meat chicken breast, then coated in Wingstop's proprietary seasoned breading, the sandwich is cooked-to-order and served on a fresh-baked yeast roll with pickle slices, and sauced and tossed in any of the nine Wingstop proprietary flavors, or plain.

Gliders debut in restaurants nationwide today and are available for a limited time only.

"The Glider sandwich brings another great tasting product to our menu," said Andy Howard, Wingstop Chief Marketing Officer. "Since they are available in all of our flavors, or plain, it's like introducing ten sandwiches in one, and it offers guests more options for lunch and dinner."

The Glider is offered a la carte in two, four or six sandwiches, as well as a two-piece Glider Combo served with fresh-cut seasoned fries and a beverage.

More information on Wingstop and Gliders is available at www.wingstop.com. Franchising information is available at www.wingstopfranchise.com or by calling 972-686-6500.
