Detroit Wing Company is set to open its second Grand Rapids location.

Back in 2020, Detroit Wing Company announced it would open its first West Michigan location at 2004 East Beltline Avenue.

With only six miles between the two locations, Detroit Wing Company is opening their new location where Biggby Coffee use to be at 2500 East Beltline Avenue SE.

You are probably wondering why would they put a second location so close to one another.

The answer is simple. Football season.

Detroit Wing Company President Gus Malliaras explains why it was a must for them.

"When an opportunity came up to put a DWC at one of the busiest street corners in West Michigan, we took it! It's also in close proximity to local high schools and colleges, perfect for families and the football tailgating crowd."

Detroit Wing Company is designed to be a carry-out service for its customers. Malliaras explains how Detroit Wing Company is different than the usual carry-out system.

"We are excited to be one of the first locations to offer a pick-up window for customer convenience - we text when your order is ready and you can pick it up from the window (or inside). This model allows our operators to focus on quality and service, rather than managing a dining room."

With accolades such as being Buzzfeed's best place in Michigan for chicken wings, it makes sense why another location is coming soon.
