Shanin has owned three restaurants in his lifetime. In 2013 he designed a 30′ concession trailer with 60″ rotisserie smoker on the deck, custom built the inside, and we travelled to different weekend festivals (country music, biker, rock, chicken wing competitions) on the East Coast and in the Midwest, vending our fully smoked jumbo chicken wings, pulled pork sandwiches, and chicken spiedie sandwiches. Then in 2015, Nascar invited us to be a vendor at their races! At the same time, Shanin was creating our 15 dry rub products that are in markets today.
The concession trailer business closed in May of 2016, from an unfortunate traffic accident. A woman went through a stop sign and broadsided the trailer, at the axles. This destroyed our concession trailer. We regrouped, and decided to purchase a Promaster van. He custom built the inside, and wrapped it with our Wing-A-Lings logo. Shanin saved the smoker from the trailer accident and put it on a smaller open trailer, along with the 3 bay sink. Because of this “adaptation”, we became a KCSC BBQ Competition team, and a full time dry rub sales company. We compete in competitions all over, and we simultaneously appear at the stores our products are in!
