East Coast Wings & Grill Dishes on New Branding, In-Store Customer Experience

Casual Family Dining Franchise Announces Plans for a New Logo and Entirely Refreshed Interior Look; Shares Details at the 2016 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference

East Coast Wings & Grill has announced plans to enhance the look and feel of its locations. Along with a new logo, the North Carolina based casual family dining restaurant, that’s known for its emphasis on buffalo wings, has completely revamped its store’s interior. To be implemented in all locations not yet under construction, one of the first restaurants to debut the new in-store experience will likely be the franchise’s first location in Lynchburg, Virginia which is slated to open in early 2017.

The new interior gives a nod to what East Coast Wings & Grill is known for: amazing buffalo wings and a diverse menu made from fresh ingredients all offered in a comfortable atmosphere.

“We made a commitment in 2015 to elevate all tools for our franchisees, and the refresh is the last piece in that puzzle,” stated Sam Ballas, CEO of East Coast Wings & Grill “We have elevated every platform in the brand, including On-Line Ordering using OLO, a Loyalty Program through Paytronix and Data Analysis from Buxton. The new logo and updated 2.0 design better represent our brand and are more appealing to our target customers.”

East Coast Wings & Grill will be sharing details of the refresh with prospective franchisees at the 2016 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (Booth No. 223), taking place April 26-29 in Las Vegas. The company offers multi-unit operators an attractive investment opportunity centered upon unit-level economics to support both operations and expansion. In 2015, East Coast Wings & Grill achieved its 12th consecutive year of positive same store sales, with a 4.1 percent growth in same store sales over 2014.

With 70 plus locations currently operating or in various stages of development, East Coast Wings & Grill plans to open 10 additional locations this year. Specifically, the franchise is looking to expand its national footprint in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
