January 19, 2017 // Franchising.com

Native Grill & Wings, an award-winning Arizona-based restaurant chain known for its 20+ wing flavors that guests can order by the individual wing, heated things up in 2016 with new menu innovations and continued national expansion.

Here is a snapshot of Native’s successful year:

  • Continued Growth: Native Grill & Wings opened five new restaurants in 2016, including the concept’s first locations in South Dakota, Montana and Idaho.
  • New Menu Launch: Native Grill & Wings introduced several new specialty items to the menu, such as breakfast inspired pizzas, burgers, and specialty drinks. The menu also featured two Limited Time Offers as conceptualized by the winners of Native’s inaugural “Final Cut” competition.
  • Technological Advancements: Native Grill & Wings implemented multiple technologies to increase efficiency and service inside the restaurant. Some of these included an advanced POS system to create a more communicative flow to and from the kitchen, as well as an easier system for franchisees to monitor and manage inventory. Native also introduced online ordering across its 31 locations nationwide and teamed up with a third-party delivery system to offer convenience hyper-locally.

“I am thrilled with the successful year we had, and am excited to continue our growth in new markets across the nation,” said Native Grill & Wings CEO Dan Chaon. “With Native’s dynamic and diverse team, we plan on taking the full-service restaurant industry by storm. We incorporated many new innovations in 2016 that will put us at the forefront of the industry.”

Looking ahead to 2017, Native Grill & Wings plans to open seven restaurants, targeting prospects in Kansas, Idaho, and Oklahoma. Native is also hoping to expand its delivery services to all locations. Native will also continue to collaborate with partners for promotional campaigns in an effort to emphasize community engagement.

Guests were entered to win through the Native Grill & Wings Loyalty App “Scratch, Match & Win” game. The promotion ran between August 31, 2016 and January 1, 2017. There was one single winner for the grand prize package valued at $4,500, and an additional four winners who were granted Arizona Cardinals home football game tickets or a flat screen TV.

Native Grill & Wings plans on hosting many more promotions in 2017 for our loyalty customers, which they can stay up-to-date on by checking our app.”

Native Grill & Wings (or, “Native,” as the regulars called it) focuses on food and being family-friendly unlike competitors such as Hooters, Twin Peaks and Buffalo Wild Wings. The polished sports grill proudly offers 20 wing flavors – from Strawberry Hot to Ancho Chile Lime, Asian Garlic to Honey Chipotle – which guests can order by the individual wing, as well as an extensive menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads and more. Most of the sauces and rubs can be used to customize other menu items.

The restaurants are divided into a bar and restaurant, with approximately 30-40 flat screen TVs throughout, offering sports coverage for families and serious fans, and a customer base spanning all generations – baby boomers, Generation Xers and Millennials.

Native Grill & Wings, an award winning Arizona-based restaurant chain known for its 20-plus wing flavors that guests can order by the individual wing, is now offering delivery services at 13 of its locations.

Native’s new delivery services work through a third-party system, Olo’s Dispatch, to offer convenience hyper-locally. The following locations will now be offering delivery services: Avondale, Dobson, Germann, Gilbert/60, Glendale, Greenfield, I-17 and Dunlap, Mesa Drive, Power and 202, Signal Butte, Tempe, Ray Road, and Ahwatukee Foothills. Consumers can order for delivery through the Native Grill & Wings App or through the website.

“We wanted to implement a delivery system that provides convenient services for our guests, along with continuing to adapt in this dynamic, fast-paced restaurant industry,” says Native Grill & Wings CEO Dan Chaon. “We are also thrilled to partner with local and national delivery service providers, and to hopefully one day offer these services at every Native Grill & Wings location nationwide.”

Dispatch creates a network of Delivery Service Providers, such as Postmates and UberRUSH, to combat demanding consumerism in the restaurant industry. With Native’s partnership with Dispatch, more areas will qualify for delivery that may not have been possible before.
