East Coast Wings to open in Albemarle

Published 5:09 pm Wednesday, June 13, 2018

East Coast Wings + Grill has signed a deal for a new restaurant in Albemarle to open later this year.
The new location will be the brand’s 32nd in the state planned for operations in 2018, with at least 58 more corporate-owned and franchised restaurants planned in the Southeast for the next five years.
The new Albemarle location will be led by entrepreneurial team Terry Kimrey and Jeff Sepesi, who intend to open a second location in Asheboro.
“Our brand has a track record of success throughout North Carolina, proven through measureable benchmarks and KPIs which have complemented our growth,” said Sam Ballas, CEO of East Coast Wings + Grill.
“As trusted local community leaders, Terry and Jeff will represent our restaurant brand enthusiastically and effectively in Albemarle,” added Ballas.
East Coast Wings + Grill locations are individually owned and operated.
Known for its wide variety of buffalo wings, East Coast Wings + Grill offers wing sauces that are mixed to order. Inspired by different cultures — The Islands, Tex Mex, Classic American, Asian, Southern BBQ, European, Bayou and more — at East Coast Wings + Grill, community members can enjoy dozens of flavors of chicken wings and choose from eight heat intensities, resulting in hundreds of possible combinations that can be added to most entrees and wings.
While wings remain a staple, the restaurant’s menu also includes burgers, salads, sandwiches and more.
The Stanly News & Press attempted to reach the owners of the business in Albemarle.
Through a East Coast representative, owners agreed to reveal more about the venture in a later story.
