Abaavo Group Private Limited signs 20 Store Agreement

RICHARDSON, Texas – Wingstop today announced a multi-store development agreement to open its first restaurants in Southeast Asia.

The agreement with Abaavo Group Private Limited will bring 20 Wingstop locations to Singapore.

“This agreement is a huge milestone for our international development,” said Dave Vernon, Chief Development Officer at Wingstop. “Singapore represents the first country Wingstop will enter in Southeast Asia and will serve as a model as we continue to expand overseas. Singapore is primed for a great chicken wing concept and the team behind Abaavo brings great knowledge of the area, and the operational experience to set us up for success.”
