ORLANDO, Fla. – The owner of the wildly popular Chicken Fire has opened a new chicken wing concept in Edgewood, near Orlando’s SoDo district.

That Wing Spot opened up on Friday, April 22 at 4777 S. Orange Ave. right next to Buttercrust Pizza and near Gatlin Hall Brewing.


The restaurant is currently in its soft opening and only operates Friday thru Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., according to its Facebook page.

“At TWS, wings aren’t just wings, they’re an experience,” the business’ Facebook page reads. “It’s why all our food, from each sauce/rub to the wings, is made fresh from scratch, without the use of any steroids or hormones. We create a full flavor experience for you with each bite.”

The business is run by Kwame Boakye, the owner of Chicken Fire, which serves “soulful hot chicken.”

Chicken Fire owner Kwame Boakye talks to Florida Foodie ahead of the opening of his brick-and-mortar restaurant.
