Wing It: CHD Expert Evaluates the Chicken Wing Landscape of the United States
Chicken wings have evolved from a bar snack into one of America’s favorite culinary sensations – and not just in chicken wing-specific restaurants. Chicken wings are found in restaurants of almost any menu type, often as an appetizer.
As of December 2015, there are over 3,200 restaurants in the United States dedicated primarily to Chicken Wings. Approximately 31 percent of these restaurants are Full Service Restaurants, and 69 percent are classified as Limited Service Restaurants. (By definition, FSRs provide table service, whereas LSRs require patrons to pay at a counter before being served their food.) Overall, the chicken wing restaurant industry seems to be as bold as the flavors that come out of its kitchens.
CHD Expert evaluated the most recent data within its foodservice database and packaged the most interesting facts and figures into a trends report designed to help foodservice industry professionals better understand the popularity of chicken wing restaurants in the United States.
