July 28, 2015 // // WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Hurricane Grill HYPERLINK ""&HYPERLINK "" Wings®, the beach-inspired full-service restaurant franchise, announced today the brand’s largest foray into international territory with a development agreement of 25 restaurants. The company’s expansion in Europe will be split up between 5 countries, the first of which is Italy.

Fall 2015 will mark the opening of Hurricane Grill & Wings’ first European location in the suburbs of Milan. Luxembourg based franchise group, Hurricanum, S.A. is the partner for Hurricane Grill & Wings’ European expansion. The group operates a number of successful restaurant concepts across the continent, and has signed a multi-unit agreement with Hurricane Grill & Wings that will produce a total of 25 locations over six years in Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland and Switzerland.

Hurricane Grill & Wings’ more than 35 signature flavors of award-winning, fresh jumbo wings will now surprise and delight Europeans with new tastes. With sauce and rub options ranging from traditional buffalo to an array of unique options that include: Maple Pepper, Ancho Chili Lime and Raspberry with heat intensity that ranges from Calm Seas to Evacuation Route, there is something to satisfy any palate. Additionally, guests can customize their own burgers using the Build-A-Burger menu feature, including a variety of savory toppings and sauces.

“Signing our first development agreement in Europe is a tremendous milestone for Hurricane Grill & Wings” said Martin O’Dowd, president of Hurricane Grill & Wings. “We are very excited to team up with Hurricanum, S.A, as they have the personality, infrastructure and ability to execute and launch the Hurricane Grill & Wings brand throughout Europe.”

“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.”
