About Wing Zone Franchise Corp.

Matt Friedman and Adam Scott founded Wing Zone when they were still undergraduates at the University of Florida in 1991. Running their business out of a fraternity house kitchen and delivering the wings to customers on campus, they sold out every night during their first week of business. In 1999 they began franchising and are now opening locations throughout the United States, still primarily targeting the college market. Wing Zone is based in Atlanta, Georgia.
