WYBC & Yale University salute Woody’s Wings

Name: Linwood & Lachele Lacy  

Business Name: Woody’s Wings, 91 Church Street, New Haven.

Year Business was started in New Haven: December 2019 on Whalley Avenue for 3 years

Why did you start your own business?

I wanted to show my different training styles of cooking with a fast-food twist.  I also wanted to show off my love of seasoning and flavors on wings.  

Why did you choose to start your business in New Haven?

It’s my hometown!

What challenges did you have to overcome in starting your business?  

The challenge for us was not knowing the business side.  The cooking side was the easy part.  If it wasn’t for the Small Business Resource Center of New Haven giving us the resources, we would be totally lost.  Our biggest take away is not to be scared to ask questions.  Knowledge is key!!!
