'Wings Over' Possibly Coming to East Arlington
The wing franchise, a favorite late-night destination at major universities along the East Coast and in the Midwest, is set to go before the Board of Selectmen Monday.
Robert Savin, who already owns a handful of Wings Over franchises, according to a MassLive.com article this past summer, is scheduled to go before the board for a common victualler, or operating, license.
Savin is looking to open “Wings Over Arlington” at what is now The Wing Place and what was WhattaWing! not too long ago. The requested location is at 218 Massachusetts Ave., just a few doors down from the Capitol Theatre.
If approved, “Wings Over Arlington” would be the 30th Wings Over franchise in the country and eighth in Massachusetts, with the closest being in Somerville, at 518 Somerville Ave. outside Porter Square, and Brookline. The Wings Over franchises tend to be in major college towns along the East Coast and in the Midwest.
