WAUSEON — The City of Wauseon looks forward to welcoming Warrior Wings into its recently acquired location on Shoop Avenue.
Warrior Wings is a veteran owned and operated quick service restaurant specializing in fresh chicken wings, fingers, and bird-dogs (a spin on the chicken sandwich). The restaurant staff strives to offer customers a quality product, quickly, and with the purpose of giving back from each sale to help local veteran causes within the community.
Work on the property, located at 850 N. Shoop Avenue in Wauseon, will begin in July with a tentative completion and opening date in mid-September. The goal is to keep the buildings charm as a 1960s fuel station, while updating the inside with a modern clean design. There will be seating and new garage doors installed with seats available with a view. Other work that will be seen on the exterior are a new roof, paint, signs and parking lot.

Brock Nagel, founder of Warrior Wings, is from northwest Ohio. He enlisted in the U.S. Army post 9/11. He joined with the belief that privilege and responsibility go hand in hand. A belief that it is his responsibility, as a capable citizen, to give back for the privileges he had benefited from as an American. Nagel is one of five brothers who served in the Army or Marines, with three brothers currently serving on active duty.
Nagel was stationed in Baumholder, Germany with the 170th IBCT where he deployed to Chora Valley, Afghanistan as a platoon leader in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He finished his career at Fort Carson, Colo. with the 4th Infantry Division, 2-8 IN BN.
As a combat veteran, he began to see issues that soldiers and prior military face once back in the civilian world. That is why Warrior Wings has decided to donate a portion of each sale to local veteran causes to help facilitate healing and help among our local warriors. The company also will make it a priority to hire local veterans.
