Wings Etc. Kicks Off Development of Newburgh, Indiana Location
Award-winning full-service restaurant and pub franchise to break ground on 55th restaurant

Fort Wayne, IN — April, 2017 — Wings Etc., Inc., an award-winning, full-service grill and pub franchise company, announced today the development of its eventual 55th franchise location, bringing its unique brand personality and premium eats to Newburgh, Indiana. The Newburgh location is expected to begin serving customers in early summer 2017.

“We’re thrilled to become part of Newburgh community and offer “Good Food and Great Times” to more of our Indiana friends and neighbors,” said Rob Hensmann, CEO of the Fort Wayne-based company. “We’ve been excited to see how our brand of excellent food and service, offered in a relaxed, laid-back, HDTV-filled dining room and pub, resonates with people from every sort of background and experience. Newburgh already feels like home to us, and we can’t wait to make friends and grow our roots here.”

The Newburgh Wings Etc. Grill & Pub will be located at 8833 High Point Drive, and will feature Wings Etc.’s famous “Jumbo Bone-In Wings.” Although the menu offers over 80 other choices that are not wings, Hensmann and Wings Etc. franchise owners see their “namesake” menu item as a real competitive advantage. Wings Etc. has been voted “Best Wings” for 22 consecutive years by the readers of the South Bend Tribune, and has also been awarded with “Best Wings” citations by newspaper and other “Best Of” polls in other communities in several states.
