Things are about to heat up for food lovers and local sports fans with the Philippine opening of Buffalo Wild Wings, known for its exciting sports viewing atmosphere. Its namesake being Buffalo, NY-style chicken wings served with one of 18 mouth-watering signature sauces and seasonings, spiced up with its wide selection of beers. The first Philippine branch of this international restaurant chain will be launched at Capitol Commons in Pasig City this December.
It was in 1982 when Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery founded Buffalo Wild Wings, shortly after the two friends moved to Ohio from Buffalo. Driven by their craving for New York’s popular bar food which was nowhere to be found in Ohio, Jim and Scott opened their own wing joint instead near The Ohio State University campus.
Three decades later, the modest wing joint has grown into an influential brand with over 1,040 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and soon the Philippines.
“We are very excited to be bringing the Buffalo Wild Wings experience to Manila and we look forward to becoming a part of this dynamic community,” said Tim Murphy, Vice President of International for Buffalo Wild Wings.
“The forthcoming launch of Buffalo Wild Wings in the country is something that we look forward to with great enthusiasm. This phenomenal and widely-popular brand shares The Bistro Group’s philosophy of connecting people through good food in a fun and engaging environment. Given the Filipinos’ love for sports, we expect big crowds and lots of excitement, especially during major sporting events. Buffalo Wild Wings offers fans the best place to watch a big game,” said Jean Paul Manuud, Bistro Group of Restaurants’ President and COO.
WINGS. BEER. SPORTS.
Classic American comfort food is an integral part of the Buffalo Wild Wings experience, and the brand sets itself apart with its award-winning Buffalo wings handspun in signature sauces and seasonings ranging from Sweet BBQ to Blazin’.
Aside from its winning combination of chicken wings, extensive array of draft, imported and local bottled beer, and exhilarating sports shows, the restaurant also offers other shareable dishes such as burgers, sandwiches, wraps and more. There are also regular updates to its boldly-flavored menu with a variety of limited-time special offerings to keep things fresh and interesting.
The restaurant’s contemporary design, complete with wall-to-wall HD flat-screen TVs, captures the energy of a sports stadium. This allows guests to watch, celebrate and cheer on their favorite teams in a fun, social atmosphere.
