Coated, fried, and often covered in delicious buffalo sauce, chicken wings are a hugely popular menu item in the United States. In 2019 alone, Americans consumed more than 942 million servings of wings.

Chicken wings are well positioned in the intersection between what customers want and food menu costs. On the customer side, wings are a protein that can be flavored with just about any seasoning or sauce, served wet or dry, bone-in or boneless depending on taste preference. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the endless number of dip options!

This meal is ideal for delivery or takeout and can be shared by the entire family. The product also represent tremendous value to diners and that can perform well even in recessionary environments. Not only do chicken wing come at a lowish cost to consumers, the ability to reheat the product in the oven or microwave the next day while maintaining taste means there’s minimal waste.

From an ownership standpoint, few restaurant businesses are as simple to manage and profitable as chicken wing shops. You only have one core product that can differentiated in thousands of different ways when you consider dips, seasoning, and sauce combinations to give variety to the food.

Feel like Korean? How about Korean BBQ wings? Craving something spicy? Extra hot wings are available on almost every menu. This is a product with a world of flavor adaptability.

Best of all chicken wing consumption is rising still in the United States with Wingstop realizing an increase in sales of around 12.3% through the third quarter of 2019. No wonder why these wing shops are popping up all over the country.

So if you are on the verge of opening your own chicken wing business and are looking for the best name for the ideal brand name then look no further than our ultimate list of ideas below.

What are the parts of a chicken wing?

Know the names of the parts of the chicken wing that you are off to eat for lunch…

Understanding each part of the chicken wing.

Chicken wings are made up of three main parts, each of which has a name of its own. And not many people can actually name all three. If you stretch out the raw wing, you can see the three sections, separated by the joints of the wing.

The larger part of the wing, which connects to the main body of the chicken, is called the “drumette”, and is the meatiest part of the wing. The middle part, also known as the “flap”, is generally called the “wingette”; while the end is known as the “wing tip” or the “flapper”.
