Mt. Pleasant South Carolina-based Wild Wing Cafe will soon open its ninth location in Georgia and third in metro Atlanta.
When the Wild Wing in Dunwoody opens, Georgia will become the chain's second largest market. Wild Wing has thirteen locations in its home state of South Carolina, and eight in neighboring North Carolina. Wild Wing Cafe was started by Atlanta native Cecil Crowley and his wife Diane, who opened the chain's first location in Hilton Head in 1990. Today, Wild Wing Cafe operates 35 locations in seven states.
The new Wild Wing Cafe will be located on Ashford-Dunwoody Road at Ashford Place in Dunwoody. The 7,400 square foot space Wild Wing will occupy was built as a Romano's Macaroni Grill, and has been vacant since the casual Italian chain closed last August.
Wild Wing Cafe serves a menu similar to Taco Mac, which has a location nearby at Perimeter Place.
Memphis BBQ Co. will soon open in the former Smokey Bones / Firkin & Gryphon at the opposite end of the same center.
Sources say Wild Wing Cafe expects to open their Dunwoody location late this fall.
