Founder Billy Richmond Jr. began perfecting the art of the hot wing at 9 years old. After pursuing basketball in both the collegiate and professional circuits, Richmond returned home to Memphis TN in 2016 where the first Wing Guru location opened on Mt. Moriah. TWG exceeded expectations early by winning the Orange Park statewide hot wing festival grand championship in Florida.
In 2016, TWG won Most Creative Sauce at the Santa Anita hot wing cook-off. That same year, it was named the #6 hot wing restaurant by the Wing Experts. In 2017, the Wing Guru became the official Chicken Wing partner of The University of Memphis, Richmond's alma mater! TWG quickly expanded, now with 5+ locations.
