RICHARDSON, Texas – Wingstop has signed a development agreement to open 20 new stores in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor over the next several years. Business partners Rahim Kurji and Bidjaan Kassam, who signed a 20-store development agreement, expect to open four locations in Baltimore and Washington, DC this year.

"We love the Wingstop product, and the concept of just serving wings and fries," Kurji said. "It's a fresh, simple idea and the demographics and density of DC and Baltimore are a perfect fit. Plus, DC is a transient city so there's a built-in audience of California and Texas fans who live here and already know the concept and love the food. We're excited to open our first stores later this year."

With a sole focus on cooked-to-order chicken wings, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings sauced and tossed in nine proprietary flavors. Wingstop operates more than 475 restaurants open throughout the US and Mexico.
