DALLAS, Nov. 26, 2018 — Today, Wingstop (NASDAQ: WING), the award-winning wing experts with more than 1,200 locations worldwide, kicks off its national delivery plans by announcing that the market by market rollout of delivery is officially underway. The rollout begins by launching delivery in the Los Angeles and Houston markets through Wingstop’s exclusive national delivery partner, DoorDash. The national rollout builds upon the successful delivery tests conducted in Las Vegas, Chicago, Austin and Denver.
To celebrate the rollout, Wingstop and DoorDash are offering free delivery in Los Angeles starting today, through Sunday, Dec. 2. In Houston, delivery launches on Nov. 28, and Wingstop and DoorDash are offering free delivery for an entire week beginning, Monday, Dec. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 16. For free delivery of Wingstop’s made-fresh, hand-sauced and tossed wings, and our famous fries and sides, hungry fans must utilize the Wingstop or DoorDash websites or mobile apps.
“The future of dining is delivery,” said Stacy Peterson, Chief Experience Officer of Wingstop, “and we believe that the national partnership with DoorDash is the best way for us to deliver Wingstop flavor to the doors of our fans. So, we are excited to begin the official national delivery rollout in two of our largest markets, Los Angeles and Houston. We plan to rollout delivery to 80% of our system by the end of 2019.”
“DoorDash has been working hand-in-hand with Wingstop: integrating fully into their point of sale system, through our innovative DoorDash Drive platform all to ensure operational excellence and top-notch experience for our customers,” said Toby Espinosa, Head of Business Development at DoorDash. “Wingstop has been one of DoorDash’s most requested restaurants, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Wingstop on a national scale.”
