AMERICANS LOVE CHICKEN WINGS – THE HOTTER THE BETTER

Quaker Steak & Lube® is here to serve, and here to stay.

SHARON, PA. – October 31, 2011 – According to The National Chicken Council’s 2011 news release, 13.5 billion wings will be marketed as “chicken wings” this year alone, which translates to over 3 billion pounds. The majority of which are sold to the food service industry. Quaker Steak & Lube®, the Award-Winning casual-dining concept, offers some thoughtful analysis on what they call “Chicken Wing Cult Culture” and why spicy Chicken Wings are not a passing fad, but a decades old passion. Called upon among varying generations and cultures, spanning across multiple continents, chicken wings are a food that groups gather around.

The act of frying chicken wings has always been a staple in southern cooking, and before that it was common beginning in Middle Age Era Scotland. The first Buffalo Wing however, that is a fried chicken wing dipped in a peppery hot sauce, originated in 1964 at the Anchor Bar & Grill in Buffalo New York.

It would be hard to surmise the grand total of wings consumed by Americans since the 1960’s. Thousands of restaurants across the country offer them as either an appetizer or, like Quaker Steak & Lube® restaurants – a main feature. Quaker Steak & Lube® first opened its doors in 1974 and quickly fell hard for Hot Wings, supplying guests wings with anything and everything they ordered. Starting as a cook your own steak restaurant The Lube® began to serve one wing on every plate that left the kitchen. “Hot Wings…Cold Beer” a moniker still in use today as the company grows hearkens to the fanfare that has been received over the past 37 years. Nearly to the billionth wing sold, Quaker Steak & Lube® is looking forward to a big celebration when that benchmark is reached.

When it comes to wing sauce, something that Quaker Steak & Lube® prides itself on with over 20 secret homemade recipes currently available in all of the franchise’s restaurants and for sale online, a question does arise: is there such a thing as too hot?

“The peppers of the world are out there to be eaten, and we will keep finding the hottest ones we can legally get our hands on. They come together to make some pretty violent sauces, but our fans love them,” says Bob Mentrek, Sr. VP of Marketing and Events for Quaker Steak & Lube®, speaking mainly of the Atomic and Triple Atomic varieties which carry 150,000 and 500,000 SHU ratings, respectively. He goes on to say, “Though the popularity of all our sauces is pretty inspiring. We have fans of all kinds.”

Recent sales data shows that over the past two years over 27,000 heat seekers have attempt The Lube®’s Atomic Wing Challenge. Each year, as Quaker Steak & Lube® takes on new territory that number increases exponentially, though not all of those who attempt the challenge can complete it.

So the next time you’re dining out and are tempted to order the chicken wings (hopefully you’re at a Quaker Steak & Lube®) kick it up a little with a fiery sauce. Studies show spicy foods speed up your metabolism, improve digestion, circulation and sleep patterns – they also taste great! And to the Chicken Wing devotees – we’ll see you at Buffalo Wing Festival 2012 in Buffalo New York!

For the car-pool-companion who can’t get enough Kenny G: snazzy saxophone slippers and a substantial gift card to The Lube® where the acoustic ambiance has been auto-tuned to cool.

For your father-in-law, the extreme outdoorsman: A big ole bag of flint, 97 yards of rope, and a 4-Pack of The Lube®’s award-winning sauces, because nothing makes a grub worm taste more like chicken than a heavy handed application of Arizona Ranch®.

For your kid’s kindergarten teacher: After spending 40 hours a week up to her eyeballs in glitter, paste and safety scissors she needs a night off. Remove the class hamster from her hands and trade it for the following: A big bottle of her favorite beverage, a stack of Red Box DVDs, and a Quaker Steak & Lube® t-shirt (we suggest the ladies “Too Hot To Handle”).

Finally, to the bosses out there: Is your team chomping at the bit for some fun off-the-clock time? Might we suggest you give them a half-day along with a Quaker Steak & Lube® gift card?
