July 08, 2021 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS - In the three short months since Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop’s acquired Wing Zone, both brands have seen remarkable achievements - including ten signed franchise agreements for each brand which will bring a total of 30 new Capriotti’s shops and 30 Wing Zone locations to communities across the country. Throughout the first quarter, Capriotti’s and Wing Zone have remained committed to innovation, profitability and growth and franchise partners have taken notice. Seeing the value that the leadership team brings to the table, franchise partners are reinvesting in both brands.

- Baltimore, MD
- Coeur d'Alene, ID

“A big reason why our franchise partners want to reinvest in our brands is because they feel confident in the leadership and direction both brands are heading,” said David Bloom, Chief Development Officer for Capriotti’s and Wing Zone. “Our expansion is validation of the strength of our business model and our partners are excited about the phase of growth for both brands. Our continued success is what makes us the industry leader and will continue to separate us from others out there.”
The confidence these franchisees demonstrate by investing in Capriotti’s and Wing Zone is a testament to both brand’s strength and durability during a particularly challenging year for restaurant owners. As a result of the strong support system and processes that are already in place, coupled with the leadership team, franchise partners are eager to join the growing brand at the early stages of the acquisition.
Founded in 1976, the Las Vegas based franchise is most famous for its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-shredding them each morning to feature in a variety of subs. This includes The Bobbie, the shop’s acclaimed best-seller, made with homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo on a soft roll. With the top 25 percent of shops averaging $1.1 million average unit volume and an initial average investment of $420,000 with high growth potential, Capriotti’s is a profitable and rewarding franchise investment. Founded in 1993, Wing Zone is an international fast-casual restaurant franchise known for its cooked-to-order, flavor-fused chicken wings and tenders with 31 locations in North America and 30 restaurants internationally.
Both Capriotti’s and Wing Zone are backed by a corporate leadership team that offers a continuous support program for franchise partners, through online and field program which provides significant support for marketing, retail sales, operations and growth strategies through every stage of their ownership. Looking ahead, Capriotti’s and Wing Zone’s focus will be to continue being extraordinary franchise systems, whose franchise partners earn exceptional returns by selling the best tasting, highest quality food.
