Wing Heaven In Portage Has Closed Permanently
Last November in 2020 Wing Heaven finally made their Kalamazoo debut, after only ever having 3 locations in the Grand Rapids area, but sadly they have closed their doors for good. As fast as they arrived it seems they have halted operations at their location at 6005 S Westnedge Ave. in Portage. Many people were excited for their opening, which is why some people feel a little disappointed that they're now closed. Former customers of the wing shop feel there may have been inconstancies which caused the closure:
Well, they didn’t even open until noon, So there goes most of the lunch rush and their hours seemed to change weekly. They were actually closed on super bowl Sunday, which you’d think would be one their busiest days. I’m sad they had to close, but it seems like every time i tried to go there they were closed.
Wing Heaven was located where the old Schlotzsky's deli used to be, across the street from the Walgreens on Milham off Westnedge. Many of the reviews on their Facebook page seem to suggest that there was never a stable form of ordering or communication between customer and restaurant, while many people expressed their love for the wing and sauce selection. Either way, the pandemic was a tough time to start a business, and that uncertainty could have been the biggest reason of all for their closing.
As another person pointed out:
That location is so tricky to get in and out of - combine that with the road construction that temporarily closed the north entrance/exit to Milham, and that's a recipe for a quick exit.
Hopefully any future endeavors they have go smoothly and they find success.
