In 1965, Fred DeLuca and Peter Buck changed the sandwich world.
That was the year the two would join forces to create what we know today as Subway, the largest single-brand chain in the world. When Subway first opened, nobody, knew that this chain would throw a monkey wrench into the fast food game.
But they did, and today, Subway is part of the fast food world’s lexicon, right up there with the Golden Arches and the Big Mac. Though Subway ran into some tough times recently, it is still on top of the fast sandwich game, and it plans to hold onto the top perch for years to come.
Delaware: Wings To Go
When you think about wings, Buffalo comes to mind; but what you probably didn’t know is that Delaware can also lay claim to fame for wings.
Coming out of the First State is Wings To Go, a chain that has grown to have locations in states like Alabama, North Carolina, and Texas, states that have made their own names in the chicken arena.
So how did this fast food wing spot grow so fast?
Well, let’s take Doc’s time machine to 1985 when the first Wings To Go opened up across the street from the Dover Air Force Base. The new wing restaurant became a huge hit with those stationed at the base, and it also pulled in crowds from the beaches as well.
Three years later, the chain began to allow franchises, and before you knew it, Wings To Go was and still is rapidly expanding. Wings To Go originally had five degrees of heat, with the hottest being “Suicide.” Wings To Go has introduced an even hotter sauce, HOMICIDE (yes, spelled just like that), which may have you rethinking about your entire life prior to putting that wing inside your mouth.
If you’re a daredevil and can’t resist the urge to try HOMICIDE or any of the other chain’s wings, make your way to this Delaware tradition near you.
