This Pop-Up Savannah Restaurant Wants You To Go Vegan For A Day


I already know what you’re thinking, why would a company whose primary focus is chicken wings encourage you to eat more vegetables? Well, the Wing-N-It Savannah crew wants you to enjoy veggies without just adding celery to the side of your 10-piece combo. Owner-operator Kenneth Rouche offers an alternative to the vegan and vegetarian scene in Savannah with his cauliflower wings and vegan option ranch sauces.

Rouche has been busy promoting its Vegan for a Day initiative which is giving away free samples of cauliflower wings from Wing-N-It Savannah featuring their homemade vegan regular ranch and jerk ranch as part of their partnership with Phantom Coast Distillery. Amid cheerful parties and expected customers looking to grab a drink at this downtown distillery, they can also grab a bite of Wing-N-It to savor with their spirits.

The Ghost Coast Distillery isn’t the only place you can find this pop-up wing spot. Recently I met the crew of The Untouchables’ second annual Stuntfest Car, Truck and Bike Show outside Oglethorpe Shopping Centre. Kenneth and his team created an experience outside the mall parking lot with a microphone and entertaining banter to attract a crowd of new customers who had never tried the wing store before.

• Voodoo, a dry seasoning mix without MSG that has a slight tang.

• Loaded Ranch, which uses regular or vegan ranch sauce.

• Signature Wing-N-It flavor, which is the sweet signature of buffalo, a blend of dry seasonings, making a creamy ranch marinade. Many customers have described the texture as being similar to seafood, which was a delight for new vegans.

• The Savannah Jerk, a mild barbecue wing flavor and also the spiciest marinade they provide.

• Lightly seasoned plain dry marinade and a great starter for those not keen on sauces on the wings.

Savannah resident Mark Gunter tried Wing-N-It Savannah for the first time that day and said that “from what I’ve seen…I expect them to be awesome. I ordered the garlic parmesan (specialty seasoning for that day) and the loaded ranch wings. I like the fact that they come to different events. We don’t normally see many food vendors at many car shows we attend. »

Wing-N-It conducts product research to ensure new menu items for vegetarians and vegans are up to snuff. The first step was to introduce their take-out product lines, which include their homemade jerk ranch and their regular ranch, which also includes vegan options. According to Perry, they’ve found a lot of demand for their sauces, which can also be used as a marinade for wings or cauliflower. For the past two months, they’ve been offering the line of products for people to take the delicious Wing-N-It sauces home with. Their next venture will be to include vegan meat options on the menu in the form of tenders or patties.

This potential cross-collaboration with another supplier will allow Operation Wing-N-It to offer plant-based options that will satisfy a wide range of consumers. Perry said this is their way of spotlighting vegan options, and once they receive a physical restaurant, they will offer more options for their vegan clientele to take advantage of.
