We will provide the basic plans and layout to you so that your builder can adjust to the size of your particular store. Our layout has been designed for maximum efficiency for speedy delivery of the finished product to your customers.

The kitchen setup is space efficient and provides for comfortable preparation of all the great WingBasket offerings. No wasted space, yet space for inventory as well as finished products.
