August 19, 2013 // Franchising.com // WEST PALM BEACH, FL. - Hurricane Grill & Wings® announces the opening of its first location in Littleton, with plans to open an additional 11 restaurants across the state of Colorado. Famous for its award-winning jumbo wings, the island-inspired restaurant unveils its new prototype design which further incorporates its signature tropical ambiance with a variety of bold seaside colors splashed across the restaurant’s exterior. The notable new Littleton location has also gone to great lengths to become only the third restaurant in the state to achieve the distinguished three star certification from the Green Restaurant Association.
Franchise owner, The Fortus Group, has worked alongside the Green Restaurant Association since the beginning of the construction process to ensure Hurricane Grill & Wings would achieve the desired distinction. The new Hurricane Grill & Wings underwent a series of renovations in order to attain optimal energy efficiency, including installing 100 percent LED lighting to reduce electricity usage by up to 25 percent and adding energy efficient windows, heating and cooling systems. The restaurant also reduces paper disposal by utilizing table linens and eliminating paper towel products from the kitchen and restrooms. Other green efforts include implementing a full scale recycling program and serving water only upon request. These adjustments and more have allowed the restaurant to meet the standards required to receive the distinguished accreditation which will be presented by the Green Restaurant Association upon opening.
The new restaurant offers award-winning jumbo chicken wings in over 30 original flavors of sauces and rubs that stir up its extensive menu. Hurricane Grill & Wings specializes in bold flavor and quality food served in a relaxed island atmosphere. Hurricane Grill & Wings features a selection of coastal appetizers such as Firecracker Shrimp and Fried Pickles with Cyclone Sauce, specialty entrees such as Caribbean Grilled Chicken and Thai-Ginger & Garlic Glazed Salmon Platter and an assortment of over 20 beers on tap.
“We are thrilled to work with The Fortus Group to open Hurricane Grill & Wings first environmentally friendly restaurant,” said Martin O’Dowd, President of Hurricane Grill & Wings. “Knowing that Littleton residents pride themselves on preserving the environment around them, we feel strongly about being part of it by creating one of the state’s few green restaurants.”
The new Hurricane Grill & Wings is located at 8025 West Bowles Ave, Littleton, CO 80123. For more information about Hurricane Grill & Wings, please visit www.hurricanewings.com or for more franchising information please visit www.hurricanefranchising.com.
