September 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // POOLER, Ga. – Wild Wing Cafe is hitting all the right notes at its new Pooler restaurant.
The brand that lives by the motto "Hot Wings, Cold Beer, Good Times" today announces the grand opening of it's new Wild Wing Cafe (WWC) location in Pooler. The new restaurant will be the first for local entrepreneur and restaurant industry veterans Mark Stegall and Tommy Campbell, Georgia-based restaurant owners and operators.
"Wild Wing Cafe combines the best of both worlds," said Stegall, who is also a Mellow Mushroom franchisee in the Atlanta area. "From world-class food to top-notch musical entertainment, we offer a one-of-a-kind experience for our customers. We are thrilled to give Pooler an environment to let loose and spend time with close family and friends."
The new Wild Wing Café is slated to open on Friday, September 26th with a grand opening event that begins at 5 p.m. Popular regional bands Cranford Hollow and Whiskey Run are scheduled to perform at the event on Friday and Saturday night, respectively.
The new location will be located at Pooler Marketplace at 417 Pooler Parkway, conveniently situated across from the Publix Supermarket and Pooler Stadium Movie Theatre. The restaurant will be the ninth Wild Wing Cafe in Georgia, joining the existing locations in Alpharetta, Augusta, Gainesville, Macon, Savannah, Snellville, Statesboro, and Suwanee.
The brand has built its rock-solid reputation for being the liveliest neighborhood hangout throughout the southeastern United States with its blend of award-winning menu items and extraordinary music entertainment. These unique differentiators captured the attention of Stegall and Campbell, compelling them to open their first Wild Wing Cafe in the area.
"Mark and Tommy are extraordinary individuals," said Tom Lewison, CEO of Wild Wing Cafe. "They are seasoned professionals and have a proven track-record of providing excellence to Georgia's food scene. We look forward to helping them carry out the traditions that have set Wild Wing Cafe apart from the competition."
Fresh, made-from-scratch wings and homemade sauces are at the heart of Wild Wing Cafe's menu. However, it's the menu's variety, which includes specialties such as half-pound Angus Steakhouse Burgers, salads and Wild Wraps, that keeps customers coming back. And, the Wild Wing Cafe music scene bolsters the brand's connection to the communities it serves with events such as "Last Band Standing," "WingStock" and "The Wild Wing Voice Off," among others.
Founded in 1990 in Hilton Head, S.C., Wild Wing Cafe began as a single restaurant that featured the homemade wild wing recipes of its two founders Cecil and Dianne Crowley. As the good times and great food grew in popularity within the Hilton Head community, the Crowleys expanded the brand, eventually offering franchise opportunities. In 2012, Axum Capital Partners, purchased the then 32-unit chain (33 currently), and has implemented an enhanced growth strategy for select U.S. markets.
Today, Wild Wing Cafe operates in seven southeastern states and is an unquestioned leader within its category in food quality, drinks (an extensive beer list) and its electrifying ambiance. Music is at the core of the brand's personality, with nightly entertainment and regular band competitions.
