Wild Wok Asian Bistro of Hickory is expanding to Statesville.
“[The] Statesville Wild Wok is opening at the end of August,” said Wei Lin, manager of Wild Wok in Hickory.
The Statesville location is at 1002 Crossroads Drive in the spot where Sweet Frog was previously located. The casual Asian restaurant put the name of the establishment on the building at the end of June leaving many Statesville residents wondering when it would open.
On the door of the Wild Wok is the Iredell County permit information for the building showing that the estimated cost of construction is $129,026 for the 2,030 gross square foot location.
The Hickory location features a stir fry bar, catering, gluten-free options and $5.50 lunch specials and happy hour sushi. The menu prices range from $1.50 for a starter to a high of around $15 for some dinner options, the Wild Wok website reported.
The Statesville location is looking to hire servers as well as hostesses with applicants being able to apply in person, Lin said.
