“We had been looking for some time to bring an “All American” restaurant concept to our European customers,” said franchisee Carlo Balestreri. “We ultimately selected Hurricane Grill & Wings, not only because of their fresh product and corporate support system, but they also set a new standard in the way that people enjoy wings, and we look forward to expanding the brand throughout the area.”
