ARC Group Announces Receipt of “Best of Wings” Award and Launch of New “King of Wings” Marketing Campaign

LAFAYETTE, La., Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ARC Group, Inc. (ARCK), owner, operator and franchisor of the award-winning Dick’s Wings & Grill® concept, announced its receipt of another “best wings” award and the launch of its new “King of Wings” campaign.

For the second consecutive year, and for the 11thtime in the last 13 years, Dick’s Wings® has been named “Best Wings” in Jacksonville, Florida by Folio Weekly.  Folio Weekly, founded in 1987, is Northeast Florida’s largest alternative news and opinion magazine and has received three Association of Alternative NewsmediaAwards for its work.

Dick’s Wings also unveiled its new “King of Wings” promotional campaign, including the addition of a variety of new items to its menu.  The new menu features a variety of complementary items, including duck wings and hog wings.  The Company’s tender and delicious duck wings are golden brown and served with a sweet and savory dipping sauce.  Its hog wings are made from the meaty brisket of the spare rib, and are rubbed with Dick’s Wings’ signature seasoning, smoked to perfection and tossed in a citrus chipotle barbecue sauce.

The Company’s “King of Wings” promotional campaign also included the unveiling of a new Dick’s Wings website.  The new Dick’s Wings website has been designed around the Company’s new “Eat ∙ Watch ∙ Play” theme and has been tailored towards the company’s core customer group – families seeking to enjoy great food in a clean, sports-themed, family-friendly atmosphere.

We are very excited to launch our “King of Wings” campaign during our 20th anniversary year,” stated Richard Akam, Chief Executive Officer of ARC Group.  “The public’s initial response to our new website and menu items has been overwhelmingly positive.  Customers love our new duck wings and hog wings, and the receipt of our second consecutive “best wings” award from Folio Weekly reinforces Dick’s Wings status as the best wings company around.  We look forward to capitalizing on our success through our future expansion into other parts of Florida and other locations across the United States.”
