Buffalo Wild Wings is a restaurant and sports bar franchise that originated from the United States of America and is now franchised in Mexico, Canada, and the Philippines. They primarily sell chicken wings and its sauces.
The restaurant was founded by Scott Lowery and Jim Disbrow in 1982. The idea of the whole chain started when the two founders thought of opening a restaurant in one weekend where Disbrow came to Kent State University to judge a figure skating contest in 1980.
Their first restaurant opened in Columbus, Ohio and in Westerville, Ohio, one year after. The first name of Buffalo Wild Wings was actually Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck and was known for the abbreviation, “BW-3”. Another name change happened in 1998 and back then the restaurant was called Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar. 1990 was the year when Buffalo Wild Wings started to franchise.
The success of the restaurant chain has reached several locations around the globe. Matter-of-factly, Buffalo Wild Wings already have 1070 branches across the whole US as of February 2015. 485 of these are owned directly by the company, while to other 585 are franchises.
