Posted by John Foley

The Arc Group,  owner, operator and franchisor of the award-winning Dick’s Wings & Grill® concept, announced its receipt of another “best wings” award in the state of Florida.

For the fifth consecutive year, Dick’s Wings® has been voted “Best Wings” in Nassau County, Florida by News Leader Online.  News Leader Online, founded by Senator David L. Yulee and first published in 1854, is Florida’s oldest continually published weekly newspaper.  This award follows closely on the heels of the Company receipt of another “Best Wings” award in Jacksonville, Florida by Folio Weekly for the second consecutive year, and for the 11th time in the last 13 years.

Dick’s Wings also unveiled a variety of new wing flavors to its menu as part of its “Heat + Flavor = 365” flavors marketing initiative.  In addition to new menu items like duck wings and hog wings, the Company added 7 new flavors to its menu offering: Florida Girl, Mango Habanero, Garlic Parmesan, Sriracha, Red Chili Adobo, Citrus Chipotle BBQ and Dynasty.  The Company also added Firestorm to its large selection of heat choices that customers can choose from.

“We are excited to announce the receipt of yet another ‘best wings’ award in the state of Florida,” stated Richard Akam, Chief Executive Officer of ARC Group.  “The receipt of this latest award in Nassau County confirms our status as the leading wings company in North Florida.  We are really pleased that our customers believe so strongly in our products and will continue to build on the success that we have achieved thus far.”

“We are also excited to be offering seven new flavors for our wings,” continued Akam.  “These new sauces represent a significant investment of time and care in the development of creative and delicious flavors to further enhance the customer experience.  Our Citrus Chipotle BBQ sauce combines a tangy blend of barbeque, citrus and chipotle chilies to create an arsenal of flavor, and our Sriracha sauce is prepared with a perfect combination of sun-ripened chilies, garlic and sweetness to give consumers a savory, melt-in-your-mount experience.  These new flavors, combined with our new Firestorm heat selection, add a whole new dimension to our menu. 

“Concurrent with the rollout of these flavors, we launched our new ‘Heat + Flavor = 365′ marketing initiative to reinforce our position as a family fun foodery® that provides customers with a choice of 365 wing flavors and counting,” continued Akam.  “We continually evaluate opportunities to make the Dick’s Wings’ experience all the more special for our customers, and expect our ‘Heat + Flavor = 365′ marketing initiative to be a tremendous success.”
