East Coast Wings + Grill Riding High Atop List Of Recession-Proof Businesses
East Coast Wings + Grill isn’t just one of the fastest-growing wing restaurants in the country, the brand’s strong unit economics, high AUV, and growing fan base have helped create a brand that is virtually recession resistant.
“Our profitability and operational proficiency have combined to make us a recession-resistant brand,” said Sam Ballas, founder & CEO of East Coast Wings + Grill. “We’ve even been recognized as a Top Franchises Recession Proof for 2022 by Franchise Business Review.”
Perhaps it’s no surprise that East Coast Wings + Grill also made Franchise Business Review’s list of the Most Profitable Food Franchise Opportunities in 2022 (Full-Service Restaurants).
No longer an aspiring upstart brand, East Coast Wings + Grill has carved out its own niche as a full-service casual-dining franchise spotlighting buffalo wings and fresh crafted burgers. It’s buoyed by passionate franchisees who are banner carrying entrepreneurs proud to be a part of the brand and its growing success.
“Our franchisees really embrace what we are doing here and their hard work and dedication have helped make the brand what it is today,” said Ballas. “Working in partnership with our franchisees, we'll continue to be successful and to be the leader in unit level economics. Together with our franchise partners, we'll build on our shared passion for creating an unmatched guest experience that delivers great results.”
Simply stated, East Coast Wings + Grill is a brand driven by unit level economics, aided by its smaller real estate footprint (Next Gen ECW prototype), experienced franchise leadership team, and growing fan base.
Ballas said East Coast Wings + Grill’s leadership team will always work to innovate and improve. That’s why the brand has been able to stay ahead of the curve in reducing its casual dining footprint by approximately 33% and reducing development costs by more than 30+%. Smaller size, less staff required, same strong profitability. It’s a combination that means great returns for franchisees and should help to double the brand’s locations in the next 36 months.
