Wingstop UK set to surpass 50-site mark

With a new opening in Leeds, Wingstop will hit 50 sites this summer

Lemon Pepper Holdings, the company behind the rollout of Wingstop in the UK, is on track to surpass the 50-site mark this summer. 

The brand has secured a second site in Leeds, in the White Rose shopping centre with an opening in August.

This comes after Wingstop opened its debut restaurant in the city’s Boar Lane last month, which had a “record-breaking launch”.

Wingstop will open its 45th site later this month at Croydon Valley Retail Park. While further sites in the capital at Westfield Stratford and Wood Green along with Milton Keynes are scheduled to open over June and July.

It has also secured an opening on the former TSB site at 31 New Broadway, Ealing, and is believed to be in talks on sites in Crawley and Bradford.

Wingstop UK is on track to open 15 sites this year and previously said it sees potential to grow to more than 300 sites here in the long term.

Earlier this month, Michael Skipworth, president and chief executive of Wingstop, said that average unit volumes for its business in the UK were now exceeding $2.5m (£2m).
