Buffalo Wild Wings Gets Down to Business


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — While not all the news originating from Buffalo this morning is being met with jubilation by Canadian Hockey fans, at least one U.S.-based company is doing what they can to heal the pain.

At a morning ceremony, Buffalo Wild Wings execs officially dug into Canada’s restaurant landscape with a groundbreaking in Oshawa, Ont., to mark the start of construction on the first Canadian Buffalo Wild Wings location.

“The groundbreaking in Oshawa is the culmination of a long journey for us and also marks the official beginning of an exciting new endeavor in Canada,” said Mo Sawda, managing director, Buffalo Wild Wings International. “Along with construction beginning in Oshawa and the hiring of our management team, we have also signed our lease for a site in Mississauga and are aggressively working on multiple leases within Ontario and additional provinces within Canada.”

The Oshawa location is currently scheduled for a May opening and is the first of 50 locations the company plans to open over the next five years, creating more than 3,500 jobs across the country.
