Wings Etc. Grill & Pub Opens Tomorrow in Springfield, MO

Springfield is the third Wings Etc. franchise in Missouri, 72nd in the Wings Etc. 10-State Footprint

SPRINGFIELD, MO, Monday, Aug. 12, 2019

Wings Etc. Grill & Pub, a brand popular in the Cape Girardeau area for over six years and in parts of the Midwest for over 20 years, is opening in Springfield on August 13. Local franchise owner Drew Robertson, a long-time Springfield-area restaurant professional, chose the Wings Etc. brand because of its local focus. He has assembled a local team that shares his vision for offering “Good Food, Great Times.”

“Sports bars are not a new concept,” says Robertson, “but the Wings Etc. version is all about growing roots locally, partnering with community groups, schools, churches and even local breweries, to make sure people who live here feel like they’re at home—even if they’ve never been in a Wings Etc. before. It’s just the right balance of casual feel and attentive service, in a place where large-screen HDTV sports programming and great food and drink options are our mission.”

The new Wings Etc. location opens at 2651 N. Glenstone Ave. Springfield, MO on August 13. There is a Facebook Page available with hours of operation, menus, photos, and more. There is also a YouTube channel which includes a promo video of Springfield’s grand opening at Additional information is available at
