“Our teams have been extremely busy pushing Capriotti’s and Wing Zone to new heights through innovation and technology enhancements while simultaneously attracting new investors,” says David Bloom, chief development and operating officer for Capriotti’s and Wing Zone. “This, paired with our recent rebranding of the Wing Zone concept, has created an opportune time for both existing and prospective franchisees to grow with our brands.”

Also this year, Capriotti’s and Wing Zone have utilized ghost kitchens, which has allowed both brands to break into new, untapped markets; both have also added team members to help expedite growth and provide additional support to franchise partners.

“Wing Zone and Capriotti’s have remained incredibly flexible during the pandemic — remaining true to our values, investing in our people and building and maintaining a robust innovation pipeline — and we are confident that will continue to serve our brands well for years to come,” says Bloom.
