Wing Zone History
Here's How It All Began.
On the campus of the University of Florida in 1991, Matt Friedman and Adam Scott identified a problem. Pizza was the only delivery food available to students studying late into the night or craving an after-hours snack. Matt and Adam decided it was time to fill this void and came up with the concept for Wing Zone.
With a population of more than 40,000 students, the campus turned out to be a great place to test their fledgling business. Students tired of the same old options welcomed delivery of authentic Buffalo wings with open arms. Matt and Adam set up shop in their fraternity house kitchen after-hours to create and perfect their techniques and special flavors for their popular wings. The duo was clearly onto something, as their delicious Buffalo wing-delivery concept was a sold-out success their first two nights in business. Outgrowing the frat house kitchen didn’t take long; Matt and Adam went on to open two storefront locations in Gainesville.
Wing Zone has since grown, with restaurants now in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado, Washington, California, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Virginia.
