As with any good story,
It All Started With A Road Trip in the ‘70s
In 1978, Floyd and Judy Anderson packed their four daughters into a car in Buffalo, New York and set off for Arizona to follow their dream of owning and running a restaurant.
They bought a small local pizza joint, renamed it “Native New Yorker”, and threw their life savings into building a successful business. It wasn’t that easy.
After months of terrible sales, long hours, and a roller-coaster of emotions, Judy had an epiphany: Chicken Wings. The Andersons were the first to bring wings to Arizona, and they were an instant hit! Native New Yorker began receiving awards
for their wings almost immediately.
The Andersons soon became local icons, and Native New Yorker (or, “Native”, as the regulars called it), became an Arizona favorite.
Fast Forward to Today
In 2014, Native New Yorker officially shortened its name to Native Grill & Wings, and gave the logo a much-needed facelift.
These days, the family, together with a strong leadership team and a growing group of franchisees, is expanding Native Grill & Wings and receiving nationwide recognition. Recently named on Restaurant Business Magazine’s Future 50, Native has
become known as a polished sports grill that proudly offers 19 wing flavors that the guest can order by the each!
With strong ties to Phoenix International Raceway, the 100 Club, and youth organizations, Native Grill & Wings is strongly invested in Arizona communities, and is excited to have recently expanded into Colorado and Texas.
Back on the Road
