Two Minnesota cities are looking to add two new types of Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants called B-Dubs Express sometime during the summer.
The new restaurants will be formatted for takeout and dining within the home, which has become the new trend. The stores will be able to sit between 35-50 people. They will also be close to 2,500 square feet in diameter.
Vice president of market development for Buffalo Wild Wings, Todd Kronebusch, made a statement about the new restaurants.
In his statement, he said that they are ecstatic to have a chance to bring service to customers at an even quicker pace.
Buffalo Wild Wings Will Be Testing Out Their New Store Formats This Summer
The newly shortened menu will include the traditional and boneless chicken wings; chicken tenders, burgers, chicken sandwiches, and buffalo mac and cheese. They will also serve beer and wine. Also, delivery will be available. The delivery option is available through the website and app DoorDash.
The location in Edina will be at 7529 France Avenue. S. The Hopkins location will be at 525 Blake Rd. N. These stores both used to be Pizza Rev. They closed down earlier in the year. Back in 2014, the company bought rights to the franchise that is based in California. Before they shut their doors, they were planning on opening 25 stores.
Buffalo Wild Wings home base is located in Golden Valley, Minnesota. From the years 2003-2013, the franchise was considered one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. They’re about 1,250 Buffalo Wild Wings in the country as of now. During the last couple of years, the growth of the company has leveled off. On June 2, they had their annual meeting, and they voted in a few more directors. Sally Smith, the current CEO, made a statement at the meeting indicating that she will no longer be a part of the B-Dubs team and will be retiring soon.
