Buffalo Wild Wings History
It all started in 1982, when Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery recently moved from Buffalo, New York to Ohio. Everything was fine until one day, they craved chicken wings. Well, not just ordinary chicken wings, but the authentic Buffalo, New York-style chicken wings. They could not find anything nearby, and Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery only had two choices. These choices were, taking on a road trip to New York or opening a wing joint nearby their home. They chose the latter, and became the foundation of the restaurant today.
“It all started 35 years ago with two guys driven by hunger,” Buffalo Wild Wings says in their official website.
They started Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, now known as Buffalo Wild Wings, offering a welcoming neighborhood atmosphere and giving a front-row seat for every sports fan. It also offers 21 mouth-watering signature sauces and seasonings.
