“At Wingstop, we’re more than chicken wings. Our fans are passionate about the things they love, whether that’s music or a ten piece of Lemon Pepper. We’re thrilled to be at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, supporting the ambitions of artists and sharing in their love for creativity. The Hip-Hop culture is fueled by those who never stop pursuing their passion, and that kind of hustle is something we respect and try to emulate in all that we do as a company and citizens of the world.” Flynn Dekker, CMO at Wingstop
“The Hip-Hop culture is one to be admired because of its unique ability to unite people from all over the world through its varied elements. The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival has taken inspiration from this and has created a Festival that is all about bringing people from all avenues of life together through community building, promoting social change and showcasing both the old school and new school talent. We are excited to have teamed up with Wingstop, a company who shares our vision of supporting the local communities and inspiring the passions of artists while celebrating the diversity and positivity of the culture.” Juels Pierrot, Director of Marketing, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
Wingstop is best known for their award-winning, sauced-and-tossed wings, and has more than 900 restaurants worldwide. But the Wingstop brand is about more than chicken wings, and in 2015 the company saw an opportunity to make an even greater impact on the communities they serve. Led by the Wingstop on Wheels food truck, Wingstop set out on their inaugural Flavor Tour where they raised over $250,000 for charitable organizations and partnered with NBA teams across the country to build basketball courts and playgrounds for children in need. The Flavor Tour is back on the road for 2016 and is traveling to communities across the nation in order to support art and music, spread goodwill and share a few wings along the way.
