Buffalo Wild Wings Testing Takeout, Delivery Joints


Buffalo Wild Wings announced Wednesday it will pilot two new small-format locations in the Minneapolis metro market this summer, which would be focused on takeout and delivery.

With the smaller restaurant concept called B-Dubs Express, the company aims to grab the biggest growth opportunities in the restaurant sector.

The pilot, company-owned locations scheduled to open late summer 2017 will be located in Edina and Hopkins, Minnesota. Each location will have seating for about 35-50 Guests.

The Minneapolis-based chain said it is currently looking for future sites for B-Dubs Express in multiple markets across the country.

B-Dubs Express will offer Buffalo Wild Wings' famous wings and flavors in a streamlined, counter-service, and sports filled environment.

In addition to wings - traditional and boneless, B-Dubs Express' menu will feature chicken tenders, sandwich, burger, salad, buffalo mac and cheese and other items.

The company will offer adult beverages including draft and bottled beers, and wine. B-Dubs Express will also provide TVs for sports fans to check-in on their favorite teams as they grab food to-go or dine-in.

Delivery will also be available through a partnership with DoorDash.

Todd Kronebusch, Vice President of Market Development for Buffalo Wild Wings, said, "With B-Dubs Express, we are excited to deliver on Guest feedback and passionately serve up high-quality wings to satisfy cravings even faster. These first two locations in Minnesota will provide a great opportunity for us to test an alternative format and gain learnings as we continue to look for ways to meet the changing needs of today's consumers."
