Company Description

Buffalo Wild Wings is an American casual dining restaurant and sports bar known for its wide variety of chicken wings and sauces. The vast majority of the chain's locations are in the United States, but it has a growing presence in countries such as India, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

Two Buffalo, New York, natives who wanted to create a joint offering wings, beer and sports founded the chicken wing chain in 1982. Since February 2018, Buffalo Wild Wings has been owned by Inspire Brands, a parent company led by Arby's CEO Paul Brown.
