Buffalo Wild Wings Tenant Overview

Buffalo Wild Wings is an American casual dining restaurant and sports bar franchise with locations in the United States, Canada, India, Mexico, Oman, Panama, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam. Buffalo Wild Wings originated in 1982 as BW-3 in Columbus, Ohio by Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowrey.

In 1992, the company began to franchise by working with Francorp, a Chicago-based law firm. The original franchise fee was $15,000 to $20,000, plus a percentage of sales. By 1995, BW3 designed a new prototype free-standing outlet with clear separation between the bar and dining areas, making a shift in strategy from a college sports-bar to casual dining.

Expanding throughout the years, in November 2017, Roark Capital Group and The Wendy’s Company announced their plan to purchase the chain for $2.4 billion plus debt. This deal was completed on February 5, 2018. Since their start, Buffalo Wild Wings has grown to over 1,270 stores and over 44,000 employees and was just bought by Arby’s, making Buffalo Wild Wings a private company.
