Lafayette-based American Restaurant Concepts Inc., owner, operator and franchisor of Dick’s Wings & Grill, has changed its name to ARC Group Inc. and reincorporated in Nevada to take advantage of the state’s corporate laws.

The company has also applied for a new stock trading symbol with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The company expects to receive permission to change the symbol from ANPZ shortly.

ARC Group, whose stock is traded over the counter, did not release its new trading symbol.

Dick’s Wings has 16 restaurants in Florida and one restaurant in Georgia, along with a concession stand at EverBank Field.

ARC Group also is the co-owner of the owner, operator and franchisor of the Wing Nutz concept. Wing Nutz has 10 restaurants in Utah and one restaurant in Idaho. Wing Nutz also offers its own proprietary line of craft beers under the name “Nut Job Beers.”
