Buffalo Wild Wings (originally, Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, thus the numeronym “BW3”) is an American casual dining restaurant franchise in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Oman. The company was founded in 1982, changed its name in 1998 and as of June 2017, it had 1,237 locations (625 directly owned by the company and 612 franchised locations) across all 50 states and DC.
The chain is best known for Buffalo-style chicken wings along with over a dozen dipping sauces, as well as a complement of other items such as chicken tenders and legs. The chain’s menu also features appetizers, burgers, tacos, salads, and desserts.
Not only is the chain attributable to its famous wings, but also is recognized as a big partner with the organization, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Multiple times a year, the company does fundraisers and accepts donations that are later given to the Boys and Girls Club that allows them to participate in extracurricular and sporting events. Across the country, from California to Florida, Buffalo Wild Wing franchise owners advertise on the SkoolLive Kiosks at high school campuses near their store location.
