MINNEAPOLIS — Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. has opened its 800th restaurant in the United States. The company quickly surpassed this milestone on Oct. 31 after restaurant openings in Florida, Tennessee, Washington and California, marking a four-way tie for the 800th location.

There are currently 803 locations in 45 states in the US, as well as in Canada.

“Today’s four-way tie for our 800th restaurant opening is a significant accomplishment for Buffalo Wild Wings and demonstrates the ongoing growth and demand for this brand,” said Sally Smith, president and chief executive officer of Buffalo Wild Wings. “We still have plenty of room to grow in the US and have just started capitalizing on the opportunity to expand internationally.“

To celebrate the 800th restaurant milestone and introduce new diners to the Buffalo Wild Wings experience, the West Melbourne, Cleveland and Tacoma locations will award the first 100 guests through the door with “Free Wings for a Year.” All four restaurants will also award “Free Wings for a Year” to eight guests on each of the following eight days at 8 pm. The “Free Wings for a Year” promotion provides guests with a coupon book that includes vouchers for an order of six free wings for each of the next 52 weeks.
