Native Grill & Wings, an award-winning Arizona-based restaurant chain known for introducing chicken wings to the Valley of the Sun, is calling all wing connoisseurs to submit their ideas for the #NativesNextFlavor campaign, the brand’s quest to find its new flavor of wing sauce or dry rub.
The winning flavor will be exclusively featured as Native’s 2019 limited-time-offer early next year and the creator will win a full game experience to a 2019 NFL game of their choice. Native welcomes any and all guests to submit their recipe via the Native Grill & Wings brand Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages with the official hashtag #NativesNextFlavor.
“We are very excited to launch this campaign to name Native’s next wing flavor” said Dan Chaon, CEO of Native Grill & Wings. “There is truly no one better to come up with our next sauce than our loyal band of amazing guests.”
Native will launch an online contest via the brand social media pages. Guests are welcome to submit their ideas to Native’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages using the hashtag #NativesNextFlavor the contest will end on December 31, 2018.
In addition to this campaign, Native is also partnering with Bud Light to offer various Bud Light promotions such as 12 oz. glass for $2 or 20 oz. for $3.50 every Sunday during the professional football season. While every location will participate in the Bud Light promos throughout the season, each restaurant will offer their own specific Bud Light promo.
“We’re excited to announce our exclusive partnership with Bud Light,” said Dan Chaon, CEO of Native Grill & Wings. “When people think of what food to eat during a game, wings and beer come to mind almost immediately. Our partnership with Bud Light is another example of how we try to always say “thank you” to our guests for their constant support. We look forward to helping our guests and sports fans across the nation celebrate their teams on game day.”

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 over 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.
