2020 has not been easy for any of us. Even in the face of a challenging year, we were able to see increased sales and exceptional growth we’ve never seen. It has truly been a historic year for our brand – in more ways than one.
"This year has presented a unique set of challenges for restaurants nationwide and Capriotti's was no exception. I am incredibly grateful for the commitment and support of our franchise partners and their teams for their dedication to helping Capriotti's safely serve communities across the country," said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti's. "While 2020 has been filled with hurdles, it's been one of the most rewarding and successful years in the history of the organization. We're looking forward to growing from here!"
2021 is gearing up to be another historic year for Capriotti’s. We are excited to share the news that we have completed the acquisition of Wing Zone, a fast-casual wing concept living out its mission to make it easy to get flavorful food worldwide. This fast-casual brand serving made-to-order, flavor-packed chicken wings designed as the perfect delivery food is a great addition to our franchise family.
We are excited to share this announcement via a press release earlier this week. Using our best-in-class leadership, proven organizational structure, and partners to enhance the future of growing the Wing Zone brand. Wing Zone was an obvious acquisition for our team, as it has always shared a mutual focus on servicing fans and flavor-seekers with a wide variety of high-quality products.
With Wing Zone’s innovation delivery systems and Capriotti’s tech-forward strategy, we are confident that this partnership will be able to cement our brands as top contenders and stars in the fast-casual dining industry. Rounding out 2020 with more than $100M in collective system-wide sales, we are excited to continue growing together and serving the best flavors possible.
“The acquisition is a natural fit for both brands, as Capriotti’s and Wing Zone share many of the same internal values and organizational goals,” said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti's and Wing Zone. “We look forward to leveraging our expertise in franchising, operational excellence, and technology with Wing Zone’s off-premise experience to help both brands continue to grow. We are thrilled to welcome Wing Zone into the Capriotti’s family and are excited about what lies ahead.”
