E-40 Bringing Wingstop Franchise to the Bay Area

Vallejo, CA native E-40 has entered into an agreement to bring the Wingstop chicken wing franchise to the Bay Area. The restaurant will be located in Benicia, CA and will be the first of its kind in the area. “I was introduced to Wingstop in Dallas and as soon as I tasted the wings I was hooked. I love the food,” 40 Water said in a statement. “I chose to open in the Bay Area because this is the soil where I was born and raised, and I still live here to this day. People here are going to love these wings.” Wingstop specializes in chicken wings and offers them in several flavors in addition to their boneless wings, freshly cut French fries and other side orders. The franchise has nearly 600 locations and was recently upgraded in rank from No. 336 to 89 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list of leading brands. “We are excited about the partnership between Wingstop and E-40,” said Bruce Evans, vice president of franchise recruitment for Wingstop. “The Bay Area is a growing market for us and E-40 will help continue that surge. He’s a talented musician who has had great success in his business ventures, and we think he’ll do great things with his Wingstop restaurant.”

    I need to stop pushing hop
    I need to stop pusing rock
    so I can buy a Wingstop.”

    There’s a Wingstop @Bayfair Mall in San Leandro right by Target. I went in there about 3 months ago and wasnt too impressed.

  • Latino Heat

    everyones right. there has been a wing stop in the east for a at least 2 or 3 years. and one in san leandro. xxl needs to do there homework before they make some of these posts since he really cant “bring” something thats already here. he co-owns a chain of Fat Burgers out here too. congrats to E-40 though, that mans getting his money. fuck all the haters. im not the typical 40 dick rider from the bay, just give respect where its due.

    I’ve liked E-40′s music from day one. He’s definitely underrated. But if he keeps eating that bullshit food from his two fast food joints(Fat Burger and Wingstop), he’ll have a heart attack soon. And Wingstop’s been in the bay for a minute. It’s nothing new.
