The North Carolina-based chain’s 26th store is located in Mount Pleasant Towne Center, 1909 Highway 17 North. The restaurant’s marking its local debut with free desserts for first responders and chicken tenders priced at $1.49 apiece (Pre-saucing: The flavor fee is 65 cents.) East Coast Wings & Grill was founded almost 20 years ago as an independent restaurant. A pair of entrepreneurs in 2001 purchased the concept, described to potential franchisees as “family friendly, with a much higher than average ticket.” The East Coast menu features wings and shrimp in 75 flavors and nine heat levels; sandwiches; burgers and salads. This month’s featured flavor is cheddar jalapeno: Other available flavors include sesame; sweet Vidalia onion; Cajun ranch; coco mango; mango bango and mango habanero.
