Wikipedia: Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar is a casual dining restaurant and sports bar franchise in the United States and Canada that is known for its Buffalo wings.

History
Buffalo Wild Wings was founded in 1982 after James Disbrow, then living in Buffalo, New York, came to Kent, Ohio, to judge an amateur figure skating competition at Kent State University in 1981. He met up with his good friend Scott Lowery and went looking for a place to get authentic Buffalo-style chicken wings. Unable to find one, they decided to open up their own restaurant, first in Columbus, Ohio, and then in Westerville, Ohio one year later. Originally called Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, from which the abbreviation BW3 was created (the third W was for the beef on weck sandwich), the restaurant became a franchise; as of December 27, 2009, it had 652 locations (232 directly owned by the company, and 420 franchised locations) across 45 U.S. states. An alternate nickname in recent usage by the company is B-Dubs. The corporate headquarters was located upstairs from their location in Clifton, Cincinnati for several years before moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
