Wing It On! Opens First Location in Alabama

Some like them hot while others like them with slathered in barbecue sauce, but all of us like them made fresh. Wing It On! is bringing its signature wings to Prattville with its first location in Alabama.

Located on McQueen Smith Road North, the new franchise is owned by longtime local resident and business owner Quincy Minor, who is venturing into the restaurant operation for the first time. The restaurant opens September 14 and will offer takeout and third-party delivery Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“I’m thrilled to carry on the Wing It On! tradition of great food, amazing value and remarkable service into Prattville,” said Minor. “Our dedication and commitment to exceptional wings and a phenomenal customer experience is a perfect fit for local foodies and wing fans.”

If you aren’t a wing fan, the menu has plenty of other options — chicken sandwiches and chicken tenders, for example, and the franchise’s signature fries made with the rub of your choice.

The Wing It On! company was founded in the early 2000s when Matt Ensero and his friends would argue every football Sunday about who was driving 30-plus minutes to pick up wings from some of their favorite spots in nearby towns. But by the time the wings made it back home they were soggy and cold. Ensero had enough and Wing It On! was born in his hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut.

“Quincy is exactly the type of franchisee we want to grow Wing It On! in new communities,” said Ensero. “His strong ties to Prattville, business acumen and understanding of the Wing It On! motto — that great wings without great service aren’t that great — makes him the perfect fit as a franchisee.”
