It all started 35 years ago with two guys driven by hunger\n
The year was 1982. Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery had recently moved to Ohio from Buffalo, New York. All was fine until one day when the two were craving wings. Not just ordinary wings, but authentic Buffalo, New York-style chicken wings. With none to be found nearby, Jim and Scott had two choices: road trip to New York, or open a wing joint close to home. Lucky for us, they chose the latter. Hence, the beginning of Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, now Buffalo Wild Wings®, the welcoming neighborhood atmosphere with a front-row seat for every sports fan that offers 21 mouth-watering signature sauces and seasonings.
Beer was a no-brainer\u2028\n
And even back then, we wanted to make sure we had a huge selection. The tap lines may not have been as extensive as now, but back in the early 80s, anything from outside of your zip code was considered an import.
Before Wall-to-Wall Flat Screens\u2028\n
Originally we only used the TV for music videos (remember those?). One day someone asked us to turn on the Ohio State game, and in the end, sports won out. Imagine that.
If it Ain't Broke\u2028\n
We may have added a few tap lines and come up with a couple more kinds of sauce, but the important parts are still the same. It’s still the ultimate place to eat wings, grab a cold one and meet your friends to watch a game.\n
Since our founding, we’ve grown to have a store in every state in the U.S. and continue to open B-Dubs around the world (you’re welcome, Earth).\n
No matter how many locations we’ve opened, where our corporate headquarters is or how many years we’ve been around, one thing remains the same: Buffalo Wild Wings is the ultimate place to get together with your friends, watch sports, drink beer and eat wings.\n
There you have it. If you love wings, beer and sports like we do, then this is the place for you. If you don’t like any of those things... we still might have something you’d like.

As the Buffalo Wild Wings website famously states, “It all started with two guys driven by hunger ("Buffalo Wild Wings").” In the year of 1981 two men by the names of Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery made the move to the state of Ohio after previously residing in Buffalo, New York. After yearning for the famous buffalo wings they would normally find back home, these two gentlemen had no choice but to open a restaurant and share the delicious delight of Buffalo style chicken-wings they had only encountered on numerous occasions in their hometown. Their initial craving for a food that was no longer in reach was the beginning of a chain of restaurants that served a style of wings that cannot be mimicked.

BWW is a family committed to creating loyal customers and has prospered in this area thus far. If one is ever in the mood for a chicken-wing they’ll return for or an experience they’ll never forget, Buffalo Wild Wings is the place to go.
-Economic Impact Over the past decade the restaurant industry has taken a large hit, due to the large economic recession. This has caused prices to escalate in almost every industry. To start, food inflation has nearly doubled the overall rate of inflation (Martin). This increase is caused from the ever-growing fuel costs and demand of bio-fuels from grain. These increased costs have really taken a toll on the restaurant industry. “With lots of key costs spiking, restaurants are pressured to raise prices repeatedly even as their recession wary customers are being hammered by record levels of consumer debt” (Martin). The increased cost of supplies has forced many restaurants to pass the cost off to their loyal customers. Buffalo Wild Wings or commonly known as BWW is no exception. According to Sally Smith, some of her “chain's menu prices have been raised by 1 percent to 1.5 percent” (Thorn). This inflation of costs, to both company and consumer, creates a fall out in demand and ultimately affects the profit margin of the company. BWW has created many promotional ideas to drum up business, as there is no end in sight to the economic down turn the country is currently experiencing. Some promotions include
