Profit is Waiting in the Wings as Schwartz launches Wings Seasoning

Schwartz launches its two new Wings Seasonings in response to the continued growth in popularity of the chicken wing phenomena – a 35% uplift in restaurants serving chicken wing dishes over the last three years! *

The two variants, Buffalo Wings Seasoning and Lemon & Herb Wings Seasoning, are set to revolutionise the chicken wings arena for operators everywhere as they are so easy to use – simply sprinkle straight onto hot wings, shake, and serve to produce consistent results – something your customers will love, so make sure you stack your shelves with both exciting on-trend flavours.

Wonderful wings

In the US wings have evolved from a snack, often eaten at the football, ** into one of America’s firm favourite dishes and now chicken wing chains are to be found across the country – there are now more than 3,200 restaurants in the United States dedicated primarily to chicken wings.^

With the Americana megatrend still gripping the UK, wings are the latest must-have item for any style of operation and are being featured on menus in restaurant chains around the country as sides, as part of sharing platters and as mains. The uplift in the number of restaurants serving chicken wing dishes is driven in part to large chains such as TGI Fridays creating a dedicated wings menu and in a recent report, chicken wings were mentioned in 6 out of 11 ‘developing menu trends’ last year.^^

Customers keen to stay ahead of the game will be beating a path to your door to stock up on Schwartz Wings Seasoning as consumers looking for a flavour kick are prepared to pay for it; operators charge 30% more for flavoured wings versus plain, according to Horizons’ data.

Wings to Fry For!

Schwartz Buffalo Wings Seasoning, with its sweet and spicy vinegar-based flavour, is set to capture the heart of the nation with its hot and tangy notes while Schwartz Lemon and Herb Wings Seasoning, a citrus seasoning blend with herbs, including thyme, offers up a mellow, mild yet tasty, flavour boost. Easy to use by sprinkling straight onto hot, cooked chicken wings for a coating just like sauce, means no fryer oil contamination, and consistent results for any level of kitchen skills.

Wings Seasoning enables efficient customisation and menu expansion as it’s added after the wings are cooked, and on contact it coats them like a sauce. Expertly designed for perfect meat coverage, it leaves little or no waste and is easily transformed into a wet sauce by the addition of a small amount of water.

Schwartz Wings Seasoning is also versatile, offering your customers infinite recipe inspiration; sprinkle onto chips, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and more. Mix through butter, mayo, and other condiments for mouth-watering results or mix through breadcrumbs to use as a coating or to top mac ’n’ cheese before grilling.
