Rick Ross Celebrates National Chicken Wing Day with New Wingstop

Miami-based Rick Ross takes ownership of Wingstop in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

RICHARDSON, Texas – How did Maybach Music Group CEO Rick Ross celebrate National Chicken Wing Day? He bought a Wingstop. Ross and Wingstop announced the platinum recording artist is now the owner of the Wingstop at 3656 W. Hillsboro Boulevard in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

“I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate National Chicken Wing Day than announcing we own and operate another great South Florida Wingstop,” Ross said. “We’re all about serving our fans with the best wings in town.”

Ross has a multi-unit, multi-state development agreement with the growing 580-unit wing chain. In addition to the Deerfield Beach location, Ross owns one Wingstop in Miami, two in Memphis and a location in Jackson, Tenn.

While lots of concepts have chicken wings on the menu, Wingstop is the place where great tasting wings are everything. The “Wing Experts,” the Wingstop menu features classic and boneless wings, made fresh to order in 10 intense flavors including Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan and Original Hot. Sides are made fresh daily including hand-cut seasoned fries, made from #1 Idaho potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad and famous house made ranch and blue cheese dips.
