What You Can Expect From Us

Franchisees are the driving force behind the Buffalo Wings & Rings brand. So when you join us, we have your back every step of the way. With personal, on-the-ground support, vendor buying power, store design & construction, and marketing to build a strong brand identity for your business to thrive.


Our Menu:

Way beyond just buffalo wings we believe in upping the game with a diverse, delicious menu and selection of beers and cocktails where quality ingredients are always #1. From our fresh, never frozen wings & burgers, to exciting new items like Parmesan Garlic Aioli Fries & healthier alternatives like Wasabi Shrimp salad, we go where those other places never roam. Our Executive Chef combines fresh, quality ingredients with casual fare to create dishes that perfectly match the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant. One bite of our award winning menu items, and you'll understand what keeps our consumers coming back.


Join The Herd:

Creating the tastes people crave takes a careful hand, great instinct and a never quite-satisfied attitude. Without question, our people are the biggest part of the experience at BW&R. We're looking for passionate partners with successful restaurant management and/or foodservice operations experience and the ability to create and manage an organization that effectively recruits, trains, retains and motivates a high-performing team. An understanding of the real estate development process and a drive for local store marketing is a plus.


Focus On Expansion:

BW&R offers opportunities for single, multi-unit and area developer opportunities available in most markets.


Ultimate Sports Restaurant Design:

We turned up the lights and transformed the dark, "man-cave" sports bar experience and created the perfect relaxed setting for catching a game, socializing, and everything in between. Don't call us a "sports bar," we're a "sports restaurant" that appeals to sports fans of every jersey size - men, women and families.

We offer a flexible store design from 4,500 to 6,000 feet - including freestanding, end cap and conversions.
