    A Texas-based chicken wing chain is expanding across Connecticut, according to the company.

    Wingstop said they plan on opening two new locations in the state within the next year, one in Bristol and the other in Wethersfield.

    According to a company spokesperson, the first location is expected to open sometime later this year on the Berlin Turnpike in Wethersfield near the Makris Diner and Callahan’s Bowl-O-Rama. The second location is expected to open on Rt. 6 in Bristol by The Edge Fitness Club and Shop Rite next spring.

    Wingstop already has nine locations here in the state and are mostly located in the Fairfield County and New Haven areas. Out of the nine locations, two are located in Hartford County including Hartford and Vernon.

    Chicken restaurants have become popular in Connecticut with several chains expanding across the state. Earlier this year, a popular Southern based fried chicken chain announced its opening three locations in the state. In addition, the New Haven based Haven Hot Chicken continues to expand across the state with new locations as Nashvillle and Lousiana style chicken finds success in New England.
