Dining at Wild Wing Cafe on Aiken’s Southside no longer will be an option for hungry local residents and visitors.
The following message was posted Monday on the restaurant’s Facebook page:
“Wingers old and new, we have made the decision to close our doors permanently. This was not a decision that was made easily.
“We have enjoyed our time in Aiken and the people we have come to know and love. Thank you, Aiken!”
Information about the Wild Wing location in Aiken has been removed from the restaurant chain’s website: wildwingcafe.com.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and media event celebrating the opening of Aiken’s Wild Wing was held in October 2020 at 470 Fabian Drive.
Those in attendance included the Wild Wing chain’s CEO Steve Weigel, Aiken Mayor Rick Osbon and Aiken Chamber of Commerce President and CEO J. David Jameson.
Wild Wing’s home office is in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The chain was founded on Hilton Head Island in 1990.
Wild Wing restaurants serve chicken wings and a variety of sauces, hamburgers, wraps, chicken tenders, chicken nuggets and other types of food.
The remaining Wild Wing locations in South Carolina are in Anderson, Bluffton, Columbia, Greenville, North Charleston and North Myrtle Beach, according to wildwingcafe.com.
Also according to the website, a Wild Wing Cafe at 1050 Alexander Drive in Augusta will be “opening soon.”
