The brand’s newest Las Vegas restaurant continues its journey to 6,000 sites.

Wingstop, the Dallas-based chicken wing franchise, has celebrated the opening of its 1,500th location located at 8675 W. Rome Blvd. in Las Vegas.

This news follows the chain’s 43 net new openings for Q3 2020 and adjusted guidance, increased from 120 to 130 new net openings in 2020, to now 135 to 140.

“The strength of our development pipeline is key for long-term success as we grow the brand to achieve our stated goal of 6,000 plus global restaurants and continue building a top 10 global restaurant brand,” said chairman and CEO Charlie Morrison. “We’re excited about the acceleration we’re seeing in development and are honored that the 1,500th location is that of our long-term brand partners at Far West Restaurant Group LLC.”

Far West Restaurant Group LLC has been a Wingstop partner since 2005, and currently operates 61 locations across Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Seattle.

“I would personally like to thank Danny, his wife, Kerri, and the entire team for their commitment to Wingstop over the past 15 years,” Morrison said. “I greatly value their continued partnership and the important role this team has had in Wingstop’s successful history.”

Open from 10:30 am until midnight, Monday through Sunday, the new Wingstop location will facilitate carryout and delivery orders made either via, or the proprietary Wingstop app.
