Tyson Foodservice Celebrates National Chicken Wing Day With Tyson Red Label Wings Introduction

By Press Release


SPRINGDALE, Ark. (July 24, 2018) —In celebration of National Chicken Wing Day (July 29), Tyson Foodservice, a division of Tyson Foods, Inc., announces the newest addition to its Tyson Red Label® product line—wings.  With 45 percent of consumers purchasing wings at restaurants and foodservice outlets1, Tyson Red Label® wings make it even easier for operators to order the most popular forms and flavors all in one place.

“Chicken wings are an American staple with the average person consuming 290 wings each year2,” said Doug Ramsey, Group President of Poultry at Tyson Foods. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Chicken Wing Day than with the introduction of new wing offerings to our Tyson Red Label® product line. We believe that nothing should prevent operators from offering what’s important to guests. That’s why our entire line is made from chicken raised with No Antibiotics Ever, just one more example of our company’s commitment to continuous improvement.”

The Tyson Red Label® brand now includes jumbo-sized bone-in wings. This offers a meatier, juicier wing that guests will love. Bone-in remains the preferred choice for wing eaters, accounting for 60 percent of the wings being served at restaurants.1 Bone-in wing varieties include Golden Crispy, Hot ‘N Spicy, Applewood Smoked and Oven Roasted Starch Coated. Boneless wing additions include Hot ‘N Spicy, Applewood Smoked and Starch Coated.

With versatile preparation options (oven or fryer), operators can finish with the method that best suits the operation to deliver outstanding flavor and appearance. Tyson Red Label® wings taste great as is or can be tossed in a signature sauce.

Toss Applewood Smoked Bone-in Wings with Carolina gold mustard BBQ sauce for sweet and sour flavor with hints of heat from the mustard for Gold Mustard Wings or try the Island Wings and take patrons to the tropics with a caramelized, sweet-and-sour-accented roasted pineapple-tamarind sauce glazed on Starch Coated Boneless Wings.
