East Coast Wings & Grill spreads its wings.

East Coast Wings & Grill have opened their first restaurant outside of the company’s North Carolina base.

The new restaurant, located at 2120 West Oaklawn Drive in Pleasanton, is the first of six scheduled for the Western part of San Antonio.

“Its always nerve-racking breaking into a new market, as you never know how people are going to respond to your brand.” Said Sam Ballas, Chief Executive Officer of East Coast Wings & Grills.

The new restaurant set a new company record for opening week sales. Ballas commented: “This is the first restaurant we developed outside of North Carolina and we are extremely pleased to see so much positive feedback. This new location not only marks the first in San Antonio, but the first of many more to come across the nation.”

According to Ballas, East Coast Wings & Grill have more than 100 additional restaurants currently under development and expects to open nearly 15 locations by the end of 2013.
