WingStreet is a restaurant chain specializing in chicken. The restaurant chain is owned by Yum! Brands, which also owns its sister franchise Pizza Hut. As of September 2008, there were close to 1,600 locations in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. They are almost always co-located with Pizza Hut.
In 2003, Yum! launched WingStreet as a hybrid combo unit with an existing Pizza Hut franchise. In 2007, Pizza Hut/WingStreet opened their 1,000th restaurant. In 2007 and 2008, a thousand WingStreet stores a year were opened. On October 19, 2009, Company president Steve Udovic publicized WingStreet's national launch. The chain predicted aggressive growth, adding more than 4,000 locations by 2010.
WingStreet restaurants sell breaded and traditional Buffalo wings for take-out and delivery. Their sauces include Teriyaki, Spicy Garlic, Honey BBQ, Garlic Parmesan and Buffalo (Mild, Medium, and Hot), as well as cajun and ranch dry rubs. They also offer sauce-free "Naked" wings.
Aside from chicken wings, the restaurant usually offers additional sides such as fried cheese sticks, chicken tenders, apple pies, and potato wedges. Moreover, certain locations may offer curly fries, jalapeno poppers and onion rings.
