A Wingstop exec went viral on TikTok after revealing the fast food chain’s ranch recipe and sharing steps to prepare it.
The video shows user Peachy (@peachy.lish) in the back of a Wingstop restaurant. At the request of a viewer, Peachy shares with her followers how to make the fast food joint’s ranch.
First, the content creator pulls out a large tub, then a gallon of “strong” mayonnaise. She pours the mayonnaise into the tub. After pouring off the mayonnaise, she uses two half gallons of buttermilk and pours it into the tub.
The last ingredient is the special one, says Peachy. She pulls out three large packages of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and sprinkles them all into the tub.
“That’s the special ingredient, so we don’t want to leave anything out,” she explains in the clip. “I don’t know if you guys like Hidden Valley, but Hidden Valley is just different when it comes to ranching, okay. They say Wingstop has the best ranch, it must be because we use Hidden Valley.”
Peachy mixes the contents with a whisk. When everything is mixed properly and without lumps, she packs it in small plastic containers. Then she puts them on a tray and sticks a sticker with the date on the tray. After that’s done, she places the ranch tray in the walk-in freezer.

The video was viewed 1.3 million times as of Saturday, with many viewers thanking Peachy for sharing the video.
“Omg thanks for the recipe this is all I’m craving right now as I’m pregnant,” praised one viewer.
“Thanks for taking the time and I’ve always wondered about the ranch,” wrote a second.
One asked the content creator if she got in trouble for revealing the recipe, writing, “So they didn’t fire you for revealing their recipe?”
Responding to the comment, Peachy said, “Lmaoo no ma’am… shall they do that? I’m a manager and we’ll tell literally anyone who wants to know how to love it.”
Other viewers, posing as current and former Wingstop employees, shared their experiences at the ranch.
“I remember the smell when I used to do it. It takes me way back,” one person recalled.
“I used to hate working on the ranch when I worked at Wingstop! My arm used to hurt because he was doing it non-stop because people loved him so much,” shared a second.
“I worked at Wing Stop 18 years ago. That was my job. I was taking orders and doing ranch,” said a third.
One employee revealed the measurements of his site when building the ranch, “It’s a 3:6:9 method on who I work at.”
Peachy responded to the comment on how her site is doing it.
“Yeah, we call that a triple, but here I just did a single that’s 1:2:3 and our double is 2:4:6,” she clarified.
The Daily Dot reached out to Peachy for comment via TikTok and Wingstop via the site’s contact form.
