Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse Grows Again

Scott and Eric Slaymaker (Wingers)

Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse is excited to announce its latest expansion in the Midwest, as the company will be developing locations in Texas. The initial new franchised location is scheduled to be opening in College Station, TX, in 2023 and will offer the same great food and sports atmosphere that fans have come to love from Wingers. This growth marks an exciting time for the company as they continue to expand throughout the Mountain West and Midwest. Wingers USA, Inc. CEO Eric Slaymaker announced that the brand has executed an area development agreement for central and southeast Texas with Jaem Dwyer Industries, Inc. Jaem Dwyer Industries consists of investors and developers James Dwyer and his wife Amy.

Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse is the perfect destination for delicious food, cold craft beers, and an energetic sports atmosphere. Serving award-winning handmade wings, sandwiches, burgers, and salads, combined with excellent service, Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse provides the perfect atmosphere for socializing, watching sports, and eating great food.

“We are extremely excited to be working with James and Amy Dwyer in bringing the Wingers Alehouse experience to College Station,” said Eric Slaymaker – CEO & Founder Wingers USA, Inc. “James is going to be a fantastic franchisee and operator, and is looking to expand the Wingers Alehouse brand in central Texas. Texas will go crazy once they get a taste of our world-famous wings, sticky fingers, and craft beers!”

James and Amy Dwyer both retired from their careers in the oil and gas industry after over 25 years. Recently Amy took the role as Director of the Professional MBA program at Texas A&M University, and James serves on advisory boards for the University and two charities. 

Both James and Amy are former Texas A&M students. They are looking forward to bringing the new restaurant concept to their community and introducing them to the delicious wings that are thoughtfully prepared that have made Wingers a household name for decades.

“Wingers brings a family-oriented casual option to the city with a focus on local sports, whether it be college or high school,” said James. “Contributing to the Aggie and College Station Community is very important to us.”

“I think this is a perfect business for a fast-growing college town,” Amy added. “College Station has a student body of over 75,000 students.  The faculty, staff, and community are growing at a fast pace. This is the perfect offering to fulfill the price point and desires of students while also providing a great environment for the general community.  Who doesn’t want to watch the Aggies play football and eat great wings?  This combination is undeniably perfect.” 

Jaem plans to open the first location in College Station, and then look to expand to several adjacent areas in the central Texas area. In addition, Wingers recently announced a newly inked multi-store development agreement in Oklahoma as part of their Midwest expansion.
