Perhaps the most recognizable personality in professional wrestling history is going to do business in Huntsville as “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair announced he is launching his wings restaurant concept in six cities nationwide — including Huntsville.

Wooooo! Wings is a virtual restaurant concept that is now available in Huntsville via food delivery app Uber Eats.

What is this new wings restaurant concept?

Officially launched in Nashville July 28, Wooooo! Wings will also have “locations” in Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Los Angeles, Jacksonville and San Antonio.

An announcement from Flair said the wings will be prepared by Kitchen Data Systems’ (KDS) KitchPartner restaurants, a network managed by KDS’ proprietary software, which matches member restaurants with brands to launch new virtual dining experiences — bringing extra revenue streams for both brands and their restaurant KitchPartners.

The Wooooo! Wings menu, developed by “Team Flair” in conjunction with KDS’ in-house chef, celebrates one of pro wrestling’s most charismatic characters with flavors that match his personal brand. The virtual restaurant opens with competitive advantages, bringing a reach of over 25M+ weekly from a combination of Ric Flair’s podcast, social media accounts and those of his “To Be The Man” podcast’s network, Podcast Heat.

You aren’t going to walk into this restaurant and sit down to order a meal, however. This is — after all — a virtual restaurant, and customers in these six cities will order their food via Uber Eats or Postmates.

“I love chicken wings and I really love flavors that hit you like a chop to the chest. To be the man, you’ve got to beat the man, and these championship wings and legendary flavors from Wooooo! Wings are THE MAN!”

Ric Flair, champion pro wrestler and entrepreneur

Why a virtual restaurant?

The pandemic saw 80 million U.S. households order delivery or takeout meals at least once a week, and the UBS Evidence Lab projects the virtual restaurant market to hit $365 billion by 2030. And now, Flair has jumped aboard the trend.

“Living legends deserve epic flavors. We’re thrilled to partner with Ric Flair and his partner, Podcast Heat, to offer this exceptional Delivery-1st dining experience. Created by Mr. Flair with our chef, the Wooooo! Wings menu embodies The Greatest Wrestler of All Time’s passion for his sport and luxurious style in each chef-curated bite. KitchData is proud to have worked with Ric Flair on designing a menu worthy of his name, talent and, most important, his fans.”

Mike Jacobs, CEO and founder of KDS

The brand is available to order now on Uber Eats and Postmates, where patrons can currently order wings in four “legendary” flavors with fries and either blue cheese or ranch dipping sauce.
