East Coast Wings + Grill Multi-Unit Owners Earn Recognition from Franchise Business Review


J.D. and Jeff Penland – brothers and multi-unit operators for the full-service, family-dining franchise East Coast Wings + Grill – were honored by Franchise Business Review as 2020 Franchisee Rock Stars. The Penlands, who own four ECW+G locations throughout North Carolina, were selected among a pool of 28,000-plus franchisees as rock stars in the “Multi-Unit Owner” category.

In 2007, the post-college graduates purchased an existing location. After a few short years, they turned the restaurant into a profitable investment and sold it in 2010. They used that experience to gain the entrepreneurial knowledge they needed and became multi-unit owners of the franchise, known as some of the top performing owners within the system, with over $8 million in revenue.
