Buffalo Wild Wings is known for getting hundreds of people together in one place to drink beer, watch sports, and eat delicious wings. While the size of their vast restaurant/bar setting has been their bread and butter, the B-Dubs you know and love might soon start looking a bit smaller, like, let’s say, Wing Stop.
BWW is testing a downsized version of its restaurant, in Minneapolis, called B-Dubs Express. You’ll still be able to get your wings, a few selections of beer, and even sit in a smaller dining area, but the restaurant plans to cater to the on-the-go fan who wants to order their food and just head back home.
The dining area will only seat between 35-50 people, and they put an emphasis on their Door Dash partnership for delivery, changing the sit-down feel it has always been known for.
This has a very Instagram vs. Snapchat feel to it, as BWW seems to be dipping into Wing Stop’s business model of easy access take-out wings.
The giant wing slingin’ sports bar does plan to expand these Express restaurants throughout the country, so don’t be surprised when you start seeing mini B-Dubs popping up.
