Colliers Lansing helps bring new high-quality wing restaurant to popular corridor

LANSING, Mich. — Detroit Wing Company will open its first Lansing location after leasing a space in one of the city’s popular retail corridors.

Colliers Lansing represented landlord and developer Wolverine Development Corp. in the deal as Detroit Wing Company leased a 1,900-square-foot space at 6527 S. Cedar St., in a new three-tenant development nearby other restaurant and retail establishments.

Based in Eastpointe, Detroit Wing Company opened in 2015 and provides customers with high-quality wings made from scratch and 19 signature sauces. Jack Brown, Troy Yensen and Brandon Hess are franchising the restaurant and were drawn to the location because of its newness and popularity. Brown and Yensen live in the Lansing area.

“We wanted a turnkey operation, something new and different,” Brown said. “As we looked at the possibility of Detroit Wing Company, we thought it was perfect. Everyone loves wings, and Detroit Wing Company offers delicious, high-quality wings that the Lansing community will enjoy.”

Jeff Ridenour, associate vice president, and Shawn O’Brien, vice president at Colliers Lansing represented Wolverine Development.

“Detroit Wing Company will be a welcome addition to a busy area of Lansing that is very popular for those shopping around or looking for something to eat,” Ridenour said. “Colliers Lansing was happy to help make this deal happen and bring a new restaurant to the area.”

Wolverine Development redeveloped the location about five years ago and Joe Maguire, president and CEO, thought a complementary food establishment would be the perfect fit. Detroit Wing Company will be next to a Tropical Smoothie Café location.

“They’ll have different peak hours, so it will never get too busy at one time,” Maguire said. “It’ll be a great complementary use.”

The owners of Detroit Wing Company are planning to open the restaurant in late July. They are looking to expand in the Lansing region with a second lease in Delta Township.
