The virtual franchise of Wing It On! will be operated by franchisee Dave Miller, according to the company.

Wing It On! has a larger plan to bring 25 to 30 units to “target markets in Florida such as Orlando and Tampa,” the company said in 2021.

At the time, the company said there was another location planned for the Apopka area, but, so far, no update on that planned location has been provided. The company’s website also shows a Mount Dora location is in the works, but it does not offer an opening date or location.

News 6 has reached out for more information and this story will be updated if we receive a response.
