Wingstop is flying high in Tyler!

TYLER, TX - The national chicken wing chain with 475 locations today opened its third Tyler location at 7496 S. Broadway Ave.

In honor of the new opening, Wingstop will host a wing-eating contest on Jan. 29 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Participants are invited to register at the 7496 S. Broadway location with prizes given to the first and second place winners.

"We are excited to bring the Tyler community another spot for great wings," said Ashleigh Endicott, marketing manager for Lone Star Restaurants, a management group that owns and operates multiple concepts throughout Texas. "Tyler is growing quickly and we saw a need for another Wingstop on South Broadway to cater to our guests on that side of town."

In addition, just in time for The Big Game, Wingstop of Tyler is giving away five 100-piece party packs. To register, visit any Tyler or Longview-area Wingstop.

With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken wings, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings sauced and tossed in nine proprietary flavors including Original Hot, Lemon Pepper and Garlic Parmesan, and side dishes like fresh-cut, seasoned fries.

"Our guests appreciate that Wingstop keeps the focus on a high-quality product that's made fresh and cooked-to-order with great flavors and something for everyone," added Endicott.

Wingstop of Tyler is open from 11 a.m. to midnight daily.
