Wingstop Shatters Super Sunday Sales Record

Wingstop sells more than 5.6 million wings in single day – a 12 percent increase over last 2011.

February 21, 2012 // // RICHARDSON, Texas – Wingstop set a new company record earlier this month, selling 5.6 million wings on Super Bowl Sunday – a 12 percent increase over 2011.

This marked the 12th straight year Wingstop set a sales record on the day of the Super Bowl. In addition, Wingstop’s same store sales are currently up 11.7 percent for the year-to-date.

“If you were to place 5.6 million wings end-to-end it would stretch over 300 miles – that’s how many wings we sold on Super Sunday,” said Wingstop CEO Jim Flynn.

This year guests also took advantage of the Wingstop online ordering system and phone app, some placing orders up to a full week in advance of their Super Bowl parties.

“It’s a huge testament to the Wingstop team that we were able to move 5.6 million wings out our doors in one day,” added Flynn. “Our staff is one of the most dedicated, service-oriented and friendly in the restaurant business."
