Grillin’ Wings & Things
OWNER: Michael Godart ADDRESS: 9447 Park Meadows Dr. WEBSITE: www.grillinwings.com PHONE: 303-799-6095 NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES: 10 DESCRIBE YOUR BUSINESS Grillin’ Wings & Things in Lone Tree is a full service restaurant, with a full bar, 10 TVs, and a beautiful covered patio. The “Special Grilled” Chicken Wings we serve at Grillin’ Wings & Things distinguishes us from all other wing restaurants. We’ll change the way you think about wings. We make our wings nice and crispy, then toss them in your favorite sauce, and finish them on the grill. It’s an extra step that adds an amazing caramelized sauce flavor to our wings. Our Pig Wings are also a must try. They’re lip smacking mini bone-in pork shanks so tender the meat just falls off the bone. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO SUPPORT LOCALLY OWNED BUSINESSES Most locally owned businesses are also small businesses, so we rely on our community for everything. Locally owned businesses shop local, bank local, hire local, and support other small locally owned businesses. Locally owned businesses also support their community, and every transaction from a customer is pretty important. WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BUSINESS OWNERSHIP It’s very satisfying to build a business from scratch and watch it grow. Running a restaurant is a very demanding job, often working 7 days a week and 12-14 hour days. However, it’s easy to forget about all the hard work when we see a customer’s eyes light up and a huge smile on their face when we bring our food to the table. We also love hearing when a customer makes a comment like, “Those were some of the best wings I’ve ever eaten.” We hear that a lot around here, and never get tired of it! WHAT IS ONE UNIQUE ASPECT OF YOUR BUSINESS THAT PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT Most of our sauces are made in-house, and customers can sample all of the sauces before they order. All of our fries and sides are cooked to order. Lastly, the fried chocolate brownie bites will change your life. Oh yes they will!
WHAT SINGLE PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING A BUSINESS Find a couple of people you can trust and rely on to help run your business. Most people may not realize that starting your own business will take more time and money than they originally planned, so having a strong support network can be crucial to the success of your business. 5 SEARCH LONE TREE MAGAZINE
