Arlington will be the first Texas location for the New York City-based Atomic Wings but it’s only the first out of three in the same city according to a Fast Casual article from March 25. They say,
“To celebrate, franchisees Nick and Dev Patel and Kishan Amin, who also own six hotels in the Dallas area, are hosting a grand opening on April 6 with prizes and free food.
“We are all experienced business owners, and when we researched the DFW area, we concluded the restaurant industry provided a great opportunity for us,” Amin said in a company press release. “We wanted to partner with a brand that people would be excited about, and we’ve seen the splash Atomic Wings has made in every other market it’s entered. Plus, the food is incredible, so we know we’re going to build a strong following.”
“The grand opening in Arlington is just the beginning of Atomic Wings in Texas,” CEO Zak Omar said in the release. “Alongside seasoned business owners like Kishan, Nick and Dev, we’re bringing our concept to new communities across the country at a rapid rate, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce people to the best wings in the industry.”
The famous wings restaurant is not just going to bring their key signature wings to Arlington as they plan to offer their entire New York menu to texans according to a Dallas Morning News article from March 31 which reports,
“Atomic’s menu includes a choice of buffalo wings, boneless or a combination of the two. Diners then choose a sauce, including jerk BBQ, garlic parmesan, Thai chili, mango habanero and nuclear. Meals come with blue cheese, waffle fries, celery and carrots.
Other menu items include a Buffalo chicken sandwich, atomic burger, chicken and waffles and a Buffalo blue salad.”
Atomic Wings was founded by brothers Zak and Ray Omar back in 1989 and their success has brought different locations aside from New York. These locations include Houston, California, Indiana and now, Texas.
