Wingstop unveils new Orange Szechuan sauce for limited time

Orange Szechuan temporarily becomes 12th sauce on wings-chain’s menu

Wingstop Restaurants debuted an Orange Szechuan sauce for a limited-time. The new sauce includes mandarin orange, mixed with soy and traditional Szechuan peppers. Dallas-based Wingstop says the just-released menu addition provides a “mouth-watering tangy citrus sweetness.”

What’s more, Wingstop Orange Szechuan landed at restaurants nationwide.


“Orange Szechuan was a trending flavor request from our guests and listening to what they’re craving is always part of our innovative approach,” said Marisa Corona, Wingstop chief growth officer.

Furthermore, Wingstop Orange Szechuan sauce adds to the fast-casual wing chain’s flavor line of 11 bold and creative flavors. Sauced and tossed, cooked-to-order classic wings, boneless wings, bone-in thighs, and Thigh Bites form the core of the brand’s chicken protein selections.
