HYDE PARK — National wing chain Wingstop is coming to Hyde Park, and is set to occupy the former Ribs ‘n’ Bibs barbeque joint.
Property owner Vernon Bradley confirmed Wingstop will move into the building at 5300 S. Dorchester Ave., saying a move to the neighborhood is “a good opportunity” for the chain.
Bradley said he could not provide an estimate for Wingstop’s opening, as the company still has to complete work inside the building.
A permit for renovations was granted Nov. 1.
The building has hosted two local restaurants in recent years, both of which shuttered with little warning.
