A new Wingstop chicken wing restaurant is coming to Deptford New Jersey, in the Deptford Landing shopping center on Clements Bridge Road. We’ve known about this since last summer but we just noticed a job listing at Glassdoor.com, which makes us think they are moving closer towards opening.
The shopping center is where Sam’s Club is located… and the Wingstop is set to open in one of the smaller “pad” buildings in the parking lot… specifically next to GameStop which sits past Joe’s Crab Shack. The location was previously Verizon Wireless.
Yes there will be a Wingstop and a Gamestop next to each other! 🙂
Wingstop is exactly what you would expect from a restaurant with that name. A variety of chicken wings dishes, with flavorful sauces!
They are now a global chain of chicken wing restaurants with over 1250 locations! In 2015 the company became listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange and today has a $4.6 Billion dollar market cap! In 5 years the stock price has gone from $22 to $155 dollars a share… so yeah, they must be doing something right!
A look at their online menu shows they of course offer chicken wings, boneless chicken wings, chicken tenders, a variety of french fry offerings, and of course drinks!
We’ve never eaten at a Wingstop, but it appears the classic bone-in wings are prepared “naked”… no bread. And of course the boneless wings and tenders are breaded.
Sauces are a big part of the chicken wing experienced, and currently the website shows 11 flavors including Lemon Pepper, Hickory Smoked BBQ, Mango Habanero, Garlic Parm, Hawaiian and of course classic “Original Hot”!
One of the reasons we’ve never tried them, is looking at their location page they have a bunch of locations in Philadelphia and North Jersey… but currently no locations in Deptford.
Where they in South Jersey before? Well, there are none listed now so we are calling Deptford the first! Doh!
There has been some activity at the site since last summer, and a simple sign has been on the window stating Wingstop was coming, and an email address. But things hadn’t been progressing with the buildout, and I imagine that is because of Covid.
The Deptford Landing shopping center website has listed Wingstop as a tenant since last summer or so, also.
So this weekend we noticed a job posting for the Deptford location over at Glassdoor.com. The posting covers all positions; Shift leader, Cashier, Cook and a salary range of $12-$15 an hour. Try this link to get to the posting… if it doesn’t work, you may have to use the search features.
