Wingstop Restaurants Inc. Investor Relations

Investors FAQ’s

The Business

Wingstop is a high-growth franchisor and operator of restaurants that specialize in cooked-to-order, handsauced and tossed chicken wings. Founded in 1994 in Garland, Texas, we believe we pioneered the concept of wings as a “center-of-the-plate” item for all of our meal occasions. We offer our guests 11 bold, distinctive and craveable flavors on our bone-in and boneless chicken wings paired with hand-cut, seasoned fries and sides made fresh daily. Our menu is highly customizable for different dining occasions, and we believe it delivers a compelling value proposition for groups, families, and individuals.

Same store sales reflect the change in year-over-year sales for the same store base, which includes restaurants open for at least 52 weeks, system-wide sales represent net sales for all company-owned and franchised restaurants and average unit volume, or AUV, consists of the average annual sales of all restaurants that have been open for a trailing 52-week period or longer.


Under the authorization of the board of directions, Wingstop launched a quarterly dividend program in the third quarter of 2017 with an initial quarterly dividend of $0.07 per share of common stock. Since then, Wingstop’s quarterly dividend has continued to grow thanks to the company’s strong cash flow generation, confidence in the business model, and commitment to generating shareholder returns. The company has also used special, one-time dividends as a method of returning capital to shareholders above and beyond its quarterly dividend program.

However, there is no guaranty that we will be able to pay a dividend in the future. Any determination to pay dividends in the future will be at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend upon results of operations, financial condition, contractual restrictions, including our senior secured credit facility and other indebtedness we may incur, restrictions imposed by applicable law and other factors our board of directors deems relevant.
