National Buffalo Wing Champs: Old Union Hotel Celebrates Sweet Victory

Posted: Updated:

The Old Union Hotel brought back a first place trophy from the National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival over the weekend. Going up against restaurants, some of which have been serving wings for over 100 years, the owners of the Old Union knew their wings had to stand out.

Entering their Singapore Chili Sauce, a sweet sauce with a kick, the restaurant brought home first place in the "Creative Sweet Sauce" category.

"It's really popular here, you know, we go through a lot of it. And it went over well up there, too, obviously," says Adam Kipp, owner of Old Union Hotel.

Last year was the Binghamton restaurant's first time competing and they placed in every category entered. Owners say it feels good to share the sweet taste of victory with their loyal patrons.

"Ever since we opened the doors here, the community has just been very supportive and pushed for our success," says Kipp.

The trophy is proudly displayed behind the Old Union Hotel's bar.
