About Wings ‘N More Express®
Wings ‘N More® founder Mark Dennard’s love of chicken wings dates back to his days as a professional football player in the National Football League (NFL) where he played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. During his time in Miami, Mark had his first taste of Buffalo-Style chicken wings and needless to say, it was love at first bite.
Upon his return to Texas, Mark and his family brought their style of beloved Buffalo-Style chicken to Houston and College Station by opening three restaurants from 1987 to 1992. Mark became not just ‘Restaurant Owner’ but a day-to-day, hands-on operator.
In 2008, Mark and his son, Wes, made the strategic decision to take the Brand to new markets and new points of distribution. This decision led to the development of Wings ‘N More Express®, a dine-in quick service concept. They soon opened their first unit. The second Express restaurant was opened in 2010.
The Wings ‘N More Express® drive-thru/dine-in concept has proven to be a unique alternative to the status quo of the fast food industry, delivering truly exceptional food and prompt service while providing a comfortable dining atmosphere for customers who wish to relax inside the restaurant during lunch or dinner. Mark’s years of experience combined with uniquely delicious, spicy, Buffalo-style chicken wings, made fresh with a special blend of spices, sauces and seasonings, and ice-cold beer have crafted a Brand with a wide customer acceptance and appeal, and excellent financial performance.
