Compete Every Day® LLC (http://www.competeeveryday.com/) is a lifestyle brand created to remind you that life is worth fighting for, and reignite the competitive fire already within you necessary to achieve life's victories.

Competing every day isn’t about what you do in the gym or a workout. It’s about taking control of your life and refusing to let fear hinder you from the goals you seek to accomplish and the people you desire to adventure through life alongside. It’s about finding the strength within to face the unknown, the courage to stare fear in the eye, and the determination to find a way to move forward. Every single day you live on this earth. 

Autoimmune Disease affects more than 23 million Americans according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and that number is rising. Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 additional diseases of having an autoimmune basis. These chronic diseases affect the immune system's ability to recognize foreign cells, so it attacks normal, healthy cells (referred to as Autoimmunity).

"We’re not in the wing business. We’re in the flavor business. It’s been our mission to serve the world flavor since we first opened shop in ’94, and we’re just getting started.

1997 saw the opening of our first franchised Wingstop Inc. location, and by 2002 we had served the world one billion wings. It’s flavor that defines us and has made Wingstop Inc. one of the fastest growing brands in the restaurant industry.

Wingstop Inc. is the destination when you crave fresh never faked wings, hand-cut seasoned fries and any of our famous sides. For people who demand flavor in everything they do, there’s only Wingstop Inc. – because it’s more than a meal, it’s a flavor experience."
