It looks like Wingstop is coming back to town.

According to an application filed with Arkansas Department of Health, the Texas-based chain is planning to open a restaurant at 1237 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., next to Pho Quyen.

It won’t be the first Wing Stop location in Fayetteville. The chain once operated at 2630 E. Citizens Dr., but that restaurant closed about 6-7 years ago.

Wing Stop was founded in 1994, and is and headquartered in Dallas, Texas. It is a publicly traded company (NASDAQ:WING) that operates more than 1,200 restaurants across the United States, and in nine other countries around the world.

As their name suggests, they specialize in chicken wings.

We reached out to the company for more information about an opening date, and we’ll add that here if we hear back from them.
