When you think of a typical sports bar, you may picture TVs that are too loud, frozen food and unruly patrons. This type of establishment may not feel as welcoming to some sports fans and families. Fortunately, Buffalo Wings & Rings is more than just your average sports bar. Buffalo Wings & Rings prides itself on providing its guests with an elevated, club-level sports restaurant experience through its unique combination of food, service and ambiance. Buffalo Wings & Rings club-level sports restaurant experience is a perfect place to bring the whole family. The brand delivers delicious food, with an upscale twist that everyone can enjoy. Philip Schram, chief development officer at Buffalo Wings & Rings, said the service and food they provide their customers is what makes them stand out in the sports restaurant industry.
“Our club level experience begins with our outstanding food and carries on from there. It is the reason we are ahead of our competition,” Schram said. “We serve all our food in quality china and we use fresh, never frozen ingredients.”
Munching on some delectable wings, fresh salads or sandwiches is only part of the whole sports restaurant experience Buffalo Wings & Rings provides. Whereas some sports bars may only offer a TV or two to watch the game, Buffalo Wings & Rings’ inviting dining rooms are filled with 50-plus high definition flat screen TVs, and each dining room is designed for maximum watchability, ranging from 5,000 to 6,000 square feet in space. Schram said their dining rooms are designed to allow a comfortable viewing experience for its customers with very few obstacles blocking customers’ line of sight.
According to industry reports, single location full-service restaurants bring in $104 billion in annual revenue and grow at an annual rate of 3.5 percent. Buffalo Wings & Rings is a major contributor to that success as it has 65 units open both in the U.S. and internationally. The brand is always on the search to develop new territories with ambitious entrepreneurs.
