Family-Friendly Dining Franchise Continues Nationwide Expansion

Hurricane Grill & Wings Signs Two New Multi-Unit Development Agreements in Virginia and FloridaHurricane Grill & Wings, a beach-inspired restaurant franchise famous for its fresh, jumbo wings and more than 35 original flavors, announced today the signing of two new development agreements in Virginia and Florida.

Deepak Shrestha signed a three-store agreement to bring the first Hurricane Grill & Wing to the Commonwealth of Virginia. Shrestha selected Hurricane Grill & Wings to compliment his current multi-franchise restaurant holdings, IHOP and Dairy Queen. When Shrestha made the decision to open another franchise concept, he was impressed with the brand’s focus on providing high quality food and service to its guests as well as the opportunity to bring Hurricane’s unique flavor to Northern Virginia.

Current Vero Beach franchisee, Nadja Ricci, signed a four-store development deal to expand the brand in Indian River and Brevard counties. Vero Beach’s Hurricane Grill & Wings location has been tremendously successful in its market, and is known throughout the region for its extensive craft beer selection in addition to award-winning wings, burgers, seafood and salads.

In addition to the new development agreements, Hurricane Grill & Wings continues to expand with two current multi-unit franchisees opening locations in Newburgh and Patchogue, NY, as well as the opening of Jacksonville’s Bartram Park location to the current franchisee of the Baymeadows’ location.

“The Hurricane Grill & Wings brand continues to grow, and we are proud that Deepak Shrestah wants to be a part of this exciting time for the brand, and bring our first location to Virginia,” said Kevin Kruse, chief development officer of Hurricane Grill & Wings. “We are also thrilled that Nadja Ricci is expanding and will continue her success in Indian River and Brevard counties.”

Hurricane Grill & Wings franchisees benefit from the brand’s broad customer appeal and 21 year history, as well as its unrivaled corporate support with real estate and site selection, build-out, operations, marketing, and training for both the franchisee and their employees.
