A fast-growing restaurant franchise that specializes in chicken wings has announced plans to soon open a location in Grand Junction.
Buffalo Wild Wings is expected to open later this year at the Mesa Mall.
“We’re always looking for opportunities to expand our brand and bring our great-tasting food and unique guest experience to new markets. We’re hopeful we’ll be able to accomplish that soon in Grand Junction,” said Scott Sahling, a regional manager for Buffalo Wild Wings. “We are tentatively set to open in the second quarter of 2012.”
Buffalo Wild Wings has leased a building that previously housed Smuggler’s Brewpub and, before that, a Krispy Kreme franchise.
“We are absolutely thrilled to add Buffalo Wild Wings to our great selection of national restaurants at Mesa Mall. This addition further diversifies Mesa Mall’s dining options and offers our guests a national restaurant they are excited to welcome to the market,” said Jammie McCloud, director of marketing at the mall.
Founded in 1982, Buffalo Wild Wings now operates a total of more than 820 restaurants in 46 states and two countries. The menus feature Buffalo, N.Y.-style chicken wings served with 14 signature sauces as well as hamburgers, sandwiches and salads.
