Buffalo Wild Wings to Open First Location Overseas

Buffalo Wild Wings to Open First Location Overseas

The wing and sports restaurant to open in the Middle East and Puerto Rico

American sports restaurant Buffalo Wild Wings is headed to the Middle East and Puerto Rico. With 835 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, this is the first overseas expansion for the company, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2012.

Buffalo Wild Wings has signed an agreement to open 22 locations in the Middle East, including in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and four additional Middle Eastern countries over the next six years. The company has also signed an agreement to open four locations in Puerto Rico by the end of 2016. The first restaurants are expected to open in 2013.

While the restaurant will still serve its signature Buffalo, New York-style chicken wings served with 20 sauces and seasonings and offer sports broadcasts on its televisions, the company expects that in the Middle East, soccer and horse racing may replace some of the sports seen on screens in North American Buffalo Wild Wings locations. The Buffalo Wild Wings menu will be adapted to local tastes with a range of non-alcoholic drinks, juices, sparkling waters and coffees served at locations where alcohol cannot be served.

In addition to the Middle East and Puerto Rico locations, Buffalo Wild Wings continues to explore opportunities in markets across the world.

The Real Reason Buffalo Wild Wings Is Struggling

At a glance, it seems like basing a restaurant solely around chicken wings and beer is a winning combination. Wings are delicious, versatile, and historically cheap, and beer? Beer is amazing.

That's why it's surprising that Buffalo Wild Wings is struggling. They seem to have all the elements of a successful business plan: fun food, sports, and an environment that's perfect for meeting a group of friends and just hanging out there. But in 2017, BDubs announced they were starting to sell company-owned locations to franchisees.

According to Nation's Restaurant News, the sale wasn't just corporate's idea, it came because shareholders were starting to put the pressure on. Sales were slumping, and profits were down — and when the shareholders aren't happy, no one's happy. When the announcement was made, things were still pretty up in the air about the fate of some of these failing restaurants. Let's talk about just why they're having such a tough time.
