Buffalo Wild Wings
The year was 1982. Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery had recently moved to Ohio from Buffalo, New York. All was fine until one day when the two were craving wings. Not just ordinary wings, but authentic Buffalo, New York-style chicken wings. With none to be found nearby, Jim and Scott had two choices: road trip to New York, or open a wing joint close to home. Lucky for us, they chose the latter. Hence, the beginning of Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, now Buffalo Wild Wings®, the welcoming neighborhood atmosphere with a front-row seat for every sports fan that offers 21 mouth-watering signature sauces and seasonings
Nowhere is a sport more alive than at Buffalo Wild Wings. To help Guests feel as if they are at the game and help bring their game-day viewing experience to life, the Webster Buffalo Wild Wings features the restaurant’s new stadia design. The design captures the energy of a sports stadium and brings together the essentials needed to create a social and interactive local gathering place for sports fans
They feel that it is always rewarding working with the public, meeting new individuals and building relationships with regular guests and they have 47 employees currently working at the Webster Location and have been there 3 years in their Towne Center location.
They recognize that needs can vary greatly from one community to another. That’s why we’ve created a program that allows each of our restaurants to help raise funds for organizations in their local community. With our Eat Wings, Raise Funds. program, when you dine, we donate. Since its inception, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants have donated more than $1 million to local organizations that assist youth and families in need, military families and disaster relief efforts.
Buffalo Wild Wings® believes that teamwork builds the foundation for a successful community and our goal is to help make your community the best place to live, work, play and dine. Home Team Advantage is a way for your team to earn funds to benefit your program, all season long! Let’s keep our community working and playing together.
By 2020, we are donating more than $17 million to fund football, basketball, cheer, dance, and step programs at local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country through corporate and Guest donations. In 2016, Buffalo Wild Wings was able to provide $4.1 million dollars to fund ALL STARS grants to expose more kids to the benefits of participating in team sports and belonging to a team.
They are committed to building communities where kids can thrive, compete and belong to a team so they are teaming up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America(BGCA) to help more kids play team sports!
