A job listing on an internet job site indicates a Wingstop will be coming to Vicksburg soon.
Indeed.com has listing for all positions, including a general manager, for a local store.
Wingstop is a chicken wing restaurant with a wide selection of side items including VooDoo fries. It was started in Garland, Texas, in 1994 and has expanded to over 1,500 restaurants according to the website. The chain has locations worldwide including in the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Panama, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.
The closest Wingstop to Vicksburg is in Clinton. The Starkville location is owned by a franchise called Boss Wings. The staff at that location could not confirm the Vicksburg location and calls to corporate management were not returned.
Jeff Richardson, city planning director, confirmed Wingstop had applied for a building permit earlier this week.
“I believe it was Tuesday,” he said. “It seems like they are going into an existing structure.”
Richardson did not disclose the location but indicated the new Wingstop would be in a strip mall area. There is no indication of the opening date but the job listings would indicate in the next three to five months.
