Someone told me that WOW has some religious connection. I see nothing on their Facebook page or here that would confirm that. Is there any truth to the statement?

All this time I thought it was corporate offices for a restaurant chain! http://www.wowcafe.com/

Here's our original article from last year with more details about the plans: http://teaneck.patch.com/articles/insect-themed-entertainment-center-planned-for-windsor-road I'm not aware of a religious connection, but can check into that. Not much else has been made public about the project so far.

Should that matter? We finally are seeing someone who would be paying taxes in Teaneck for a change. I hope they do......

Hi Diane, WOW has no religious connections, and we are open to all beliefs and ideas. For those who need to know, the owner is a practicing Christian, but his faith is his own and does not influence World of Wings or its staff. All the best, Grace World of Wings PR

As much as we love chicken, we're in the business with a different kind of wing! World of Wings, as well as being a children's museum, will have many different food options; from sit-down dining to grab-n-go snacks. Just wingin' it, Grace World of Wings PR
