What is the best plan for a Saturday (any-day-of-the-week in that matter) afternoon? Wings and beer, the ultimate indulgence. Buffalo Wild Wings offers a variety of meals and drinks, but chicken wings and beer are the bestsellers. The restaurant offers five seasonings for traditional and boneless wings, and 16 signature sauces with different level of hotness. From the bar you can order signature drinks and specialty cocktails as well as choose from a long list of domestic, imported and craft beer. Dine-in or take-out, the choice is yours.


Having a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant of your own and serving top-of-the-top wings is not impossible. You need to commit to at least two new franchises and have a inimum of $750,000 liquid assets per restaurant.  You have to pay a franchise fee of $40,000 and a monthly royalty fee of 5% of sales. Another requirement is that each restaurant must have a full-time General Manager. If the owner of the franchise does not have previous management experience with alcohol, then a partner who does have experience is required and s/he has to own at least 5% of the restaurant. 


New franchisees receive pre-opening support with site selection and design, field visits and consultations, liquor licensing, and grand opening assistance. Franchisees also have constant access to operations manuals and consultations on operations, marketing and administrative matters, and receive trainings and scheduled visits from franchise consultants.
