Franchise development has been off to a fast start for Buffalo Wings & Rings in 2016. The brand has had five signings and one opening since the beginning of the year. The franchise brand is defining a new restaurant category – the club-level sports restaurant experience. The brand is building a new dining experience by serving elevated food on china, with fresh, never frozen ingredients. Its dining experience is elevating the brand above the competition. Buffalo Wings & Rings Chief Development Officer Philip Schram said that thanks to the head start they got at the beginning of the year, 2016 is shaping up to be the busiest year yet.
“We have had a very good start to the year, which was a continuation of the busy third and fourth quarter activity in 2015,” Schram said. “Our appearance on ‘Undercover Boss’ in December helped generate more applications, that will yield more franchise agreements in the second half of the year.”
For prospective franchisees, Buffalo Wings & Rings presents a lucrative investment opportunity, as it is a part of a dynamic and growing industry. According to IBISWorld, the single location full-service restaurant industry growing at an annual rate of 3.5 percent and the time is now for interested entrepreneurs to invest in the brand.
The total investment for a Buffalo Wings & Rings franchise ranges from $970,000 to $1.5 million. The brand provides the best tools for franchisees to succeed, including thorough training, marketing, support and a corporate staff ready to answer any questions a franchisee may have.
With so much activity occurring so early in 2016, Schram wants prospective franchisees to know that they will get the attention they deserve. He said franchisees get into the business because they want to be prosperous, and the brand has proven that they are just that--successful.
“If you look at why franchisees invest with us it’s because they want to be triumphant. Nobody gets into the business to lose money or get a headache,” Schram said. “Our model has proven to be successful for new franchisees and we help them every step of the way. We have a fantastic menu and customer service—we are building a brand that guests and investors want to be a part of.”
