Entrepreneur Magazine: What Coaching Little League Taught a Buffalo Wings & Rings Franchisee

It was a little league baseball game that led Mike Weyer on the path to become a Buffalo Wings & Rings franchisee.

The lessons learned on the baseball diamond are easily translated to the business environment. Mike Weyer, a franchisee in the Buffalo Wings & Rings system, is a Little League coach and has been able to apply some of the tenants of America’s pastime to his franchise business.

“You have to work hard every day and continue to improve at what you do,” Weyer told Entrepreneur. “There are a lot of people that are looking for the ‘magic bullet’ but I don’t think it exists in business or in baseball. You have to excel at all of the small things. Every time that someone walks into your restaurant, you have to make sure that every element is done well.”

At his Buffalo Wings & Rings locations, Weyers works to make every guest’s experience like the one he encountered the first time he heard about the brand. Working with a corporate team like Buffalo Wings & Rings has helped him get where he is today. Weyer credits the support from the corporate team and franchise model for his success.

“I’m really happy with how we’ve done with Buffalo Wings & Rings, especially over the course of the last year,” Weyer told Entrepreneur. “Everything that the corporate team is doing is clicking, and I feel like we’ve figured out the path that we should be following. So, I’d like to grow along with the franchise.”

Weyer currently has two Buffalo Wings & Rings locations in Jasper and Bedford, Indiana. He has an agreement to open a third location in the future.
