The Wingstop Hot Box Takes 4/20 Munchies to New Highs

DALLAS, April 19, 2023 — In celebration of the highest holiday, Wingstop (NASDAQ: WING) is introducing the Wingstop Hot Box – the newest menu item, sure to curb even the craziest case of the munchies. Available April 20-23, 2023 in restaurants nationwide, the limited-time menu innovation satisfies the most-craved munchie hankerings, tingling taste buds with spicy, cheesy, salty and natural herb flavors.

Fans can choose between a Wingstop Chicken Sandwich, 8-piece boneless or classic wings, or 3-piece tenders, which come hand sauced-and-tossed in a spicy, cheesy dry rub. Together, the cooked-to-order chicken and bed of fries come drizzled in a spicy lit ranch, topped with hot cheese puff dust and a natural herb seasoning, with an ice-cold 20 oz. drink and side of ranch for an amplified flavor experience. The Wingstop Hot Box ranges from $8.99 to $13.99 depending on protein selection.*

“It’s no secret that our fans celebrate this holiday with Wingstop in hand,” said Michael Skipworth, Wingstop’s President & CEO. “We’re serious about serving flavor and 4/20 is no exception. This year, we’re going the extra mile with the specially-made Wingstop Hot Box with amped up flavor to accompany – or enhance – fans’ holiday celebrations.”
