Wingstop To Test Chicken Sandwiches For a Limited Time

Wingstop, a brand known primarily for serving chicken wings over the past 17 years is trying to teach itself a new trick: Making a Chicken Sandwich. The chain’s latest initiative, a chicken breast breaded and seasoned with 9 flavors and served on a roll with pickles, has appeared with a similar description and photo on their Facebook page. Their aviation-themed restaurants, with over 470 units nationwide, will be testing out these slyly named Gliders over the course of the next 3 months, starting April 18.

The addition of Gliders mini chicken sandwiches serves as the beginning of an initiative to expand the brand’s lunch-time business. Suggested prices for the Gliders will start at $4.99 for two, $9.89 for four and six sandwiches will clock in at $13.99. Two sandwiches plus fries and a drink will see a combo price of $6.99.

As menu item tests normally go, the Glider’s future as a permanent fixture on the Wingstop menu will be largely determined by its customer reception and sales over the next 90 days. Are y’all excited for this sandwich?
