The Sun Herald 03/24/2005 Frozen Hooters wings: Good, not the real thing

It looks like Hooter's forray into the frozen food aisle needs a bit more work. I love the concept of bringing wings into the mainstream with a Hooters branded version, but why bother really? Anyone who knows anything about wings knows that no frozen store-bought version could ever perform all that well. Wings are meant to be cooked fresh and eaten right away. If you aren't going to your favorite wing joint or making them on your own from scratch, don't bother!

Peace, love and grease!

Wings make it to Portland!

Cheap Eats

Here's a quick little review from the Portland, OR newspaper about the first true wing joint that opened up earlier this year. The place is a nice little spot, the owners are huge wing lovers and big fans of the Cluckbucket. They really know their stuff when it comes to wings and make up some mean chicken! They have a great range of sauces and have really good side-dishes. Their french fries are money! They even have deep fried twinkies.

Make sure you check out their offical review in the Internet Hot Wing Database.

Peace, love, and grease!

Buffalo Wings and Rings plans expansion

Greetings wing lovers, solid news coming out of the Cincinnati area today. Apparently a few franchisees gathered together to purchase the company and are looking to boost up their expansion plans. This is a breath of fresh air because apparently their growth had been pretty slow of late. I love the idea of franchisees taking over the mother ship because they have the hands on knowledge of what it takes to run the restaurant. It's interesting also that 40% of their revenues come from carry-out. This is promising as that is a high margin area and there is a lot of room for taking money from pizza companies in the carry-out/delivery category.

Let's just hope they continue to focus on cranking out good wings!

Peace, love, and grease!
