East Coast Wings & Grill, a regional restaurant chain known for its fiery wings, will celebrate its Mount Pleasant location Grand Opening on Tuesday, Jan. 14 with an all day open house (11 a.m. until close) featuring appetizer, dessert and drink specials and attractions for kids. The event calls on Mount Pleasant to “Celebrate the Post Holiday Blues, Especially Our Men and Women in Blue!” as the party’s theme honors service members in the local community including firefighters, police officers, and ambulance and rescue team members.
Concurrent with the open house, an invitation-only event from 4-6 p.m. will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, wing eating contest and, for the especially brave, the Insanity Wing Challenge. East Coast Wings’ trademark Insanity Wing has a sauce measuring over 2 million Scoville units, and customers must sign a waiver before ordering.
To further honor our local heroes, Mount Pleasant East Coast Wings & Grill is earmarking a percentage of the Grand Opening’s proceeds to Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics, a charitable organization dedicated to providing sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The Mount Pleasant Police Department works very closely with LETR and Special Olympics athletes.
East Coast Wings & Grill is located near the Mount Pleasant Towne Center, at 1909 Highway 17 North, and features 75 flavors of wings and a diverse menu of sandwiches, burgers, salads, wraps, quesadillas, desserts, drinks and specialty cocktails.
About East Coast Wings & Grill
East Coast Wings began as one restaurant in Winston-Salem, N.C., in 1995. In 2001, Sam Ballas and Steve G. Kontos, two entrepreneurs with over 40 years of combined restaurant experience, purchased the restaurant with the goal of building upon the formula that had drawn a fanatical following. The company remains headquartered in Winston-Salem.
