8MBA Welcomes Wingstop to Eight Mile

December 16, 2013 10:38 AM | Jordan Twardy

The novelty scissors were back in action for another ribbon cutting at Gateway Marketplace on Eight Mile Road, one of the largest retail developments ever in Detroit. Wingstop, a national hot wings franchise dubbing itself the "Wing Experts" became the latest tenant to join Meijer, Marshalls, K&G Fashion, Petco and others at the development with its grand opening on November 22.

We're also proud to welcome Wingstop as our newest 8MBA Member Business. The Eight Mile location marks their fourth Michigan franchise with more to come .

Elected officials and the Detroit Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen helped cut the ceremonial ribbon at Wingstop's Grand Opening. 8MBA was on hand for the festivities, as was a crowd of dignitaries, residents and stakeholders that included Wayne County Executive and 8MBA Board Member Robert Ficano and State Senator Virgil Smith. Franchisee John Draper complimented the aviation theme of the restaurant, dedicating the location to the Tuskegee Airmen, the legendary African American fighter pilot unit from World War II, whose Detroit Chapter was on hand for the festivities. 

Wingstop is open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to midnight. Be sure to give Eight Mile’s newest restaurant a try next time you’re in the area!
