Wing Zone’s newest franchisee is Wavemaker Labs, the technology incubator that launched the autonomous robotic chicken wing fryer, Flippy Wings. The partnership plans to open 20 units focused on end-to-end automation in chicken foodservice in Southern California.

"At Wing Zone, we live by the motto 'flavor really fast,' and this partnership will help us deliver on that promise to our customers," said David Bloom, chief development and operating officer of Wing Zone. 

"Bringing in an innovation juggernaut like Wavemaker Labs to not only establish a one-of-a-kind franchisee but also help expand the use of tech and automation within our company is a huge step for us in our quest to create the franchise of the future.

Wing Zone, a fast-casual restaurant for made-to-order, authentic buffalo wings, offers a variety of proprietary flavors and sauces for its wing. The fast casual chicken wing brand was acquired in 2021 by Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop.
