New Wingstop Restaurant Lands in Beaufort, SC

The Wing Experts have landed! Wingstop, the 525-unit wing concept, is now open in Beaufort, S.C. at 272 Robert Smalls Parkway.

This is the first location for new franchise owner Rich Connolly, Jr., who is already gearing up to open another Wingstop in Hinesville, Ga. next year.

“Beaufort is a perfect spot for Wingstop,” said Connolly, Jr. “The Parris Island and Beaufort Marine Corps Base are an integral part of this community, so it’s fitting we’re opening our doors just in time for Veteran’s Day.”

Connolly, Jr. added that Wingstop of Beaufort will offer all military personnel a special 10 percent offer to celebrate the new opening.

“This is a tightknit community and we are proud to support the families, residents and military personnel,” he said. “And with football season in full swing, we’re excited to open our doors and start serving wings to sports fans and tailgaters.”

With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings, chicken strips and Glider sandwiches – all sauced and tossed in 10 original flavors. Homemade side dishes include fresh-cut seasoned fries, made daily from Idaho potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw and potato salad.

The Beaufort Wingstop seats 70 guests features multiple televisions and a convenient pick-up window for call-ahead orders. More information is available at or call 843-379-3535.
