Wingstop (NASDAQ: WING), the world’s largest digital and tech-focused restaurant chain with over 1,600 locations, today announced the debut of its new uniform program, which includes a variety of clothes made from recycled plastic water bottles*. Wingstop believes that more than two million plastic water bottles will be recycled to manufacture the new clothes, based on expected order volume and consumption. Wingstop is undertaking a number of measures to assist its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) activities, including sustainable clothes.
Wingstop’s Chief Growth Officer Marisa Carona stated, “As we continue to develop and grow, we’re cognizant of our footprint and how we give back to the communities in which we serve.” “The new uniform program is a fantastic tool as we continue to cultivate a highly-engaged staff that is proud of where they work and what that organization stands for.” The LogoLink Group, an associate partner of Boundless Network, offers a trendy yet eco-friendly uniform line that includes a front-of-house “crew member tee,” back-of-house “chef shirt,” management polos, hats and visors, as well as optional outwear like vests and jackets. Team members may not only look and feel good in new, attractive, and practical uniforms, but they can also feel good about lowering their carbon impact. The following are some of the advantages of Wingstop’s environmentally friendly uniforms:
- 6 bottles per crew member tee
- 10 bottles = chef’s shirt
- 20 bottles = manager polo
Wingstop’s new uniform program debuts only months after the company opened its new Global Support Center (GSC) in Addison, Texas, which is powered entirely by local wind from the Engie Live Oak Wind Farm in San Angelo. The three-story, single occupancy corporate office building received a thorough interior restoration after being acquired in 2019, needing more than a year of design and conceptual planning. Wingstop Charities donated excess building materials, furniture, and office supplies acquired during the refurbishment to Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, Genesis Women’s Shelter, and Cristo Rey Fort Worth College Prep.
