Buffalo Wild Wings in the Phil

Recommended Posts

MANILA, Philippines - Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. will enter the Philippines later this year as they agreed terms with a local restaurant operator, marking their first foray in Asia.

 

The Minneapolis-based sports bar signed with The Bistro Group, whose local operations include Italianni's, TGI Friday's and Bulgogi Brothers, to start construction on branches in Makati and Manila.

 

"We are thrilled to continue our international expansion to the Philippines with The Bistro Group, and bring our wings, beer and exciting sports experience to even more guests across the globe," said Sally Smith, chief operating officer and president of Buffalo Wild Wings.

 

"The Philippines has passionate sports fans, who we believe will love the great atmosphere at Buffalo Wild Wings, as well as enjoy a menu filled with our classic hot fresh wings, and local favorites," she added.

 

Matt Brokl, vice president of international development at Buffalo Wild Wings, felt that the Philippines was the "natural choice" in Asia, considering it to be among the fastest growing economies in the region.

 

"The economy is growing faster than China`s and with an expanding middle class, there is a lot of enthusiasm for casual dining. The exciting sports atmosphere of the restaurant will fit perfectly with sports fans in the Philippines," Brokl said.

 

Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. has more than 940 branches in the US, and has recently expanded internationally with 13 branches in Canada and the announcement of plans in Mexico and the Middle East.

The Bistro Group.  Great, now at least we know it'll be overpriced.

I think they are overpriced in the USA too, basically $1 per half of a chicken wing.

 

I wonder how close to that they will be in the Philippines.

Pizza Hut Philippines sells 4 half-piece chicken wings (2 drumettes, 2 wings) for P149.  That's P37 a piece.  It's not the same super-size chicken wings we're used to in the states either, these are just regular size skinny a$$ chicken wings.  I wonder what kind of chicken BWW will use.

Someone needs to come up with a chicken that has more than 2 wings. Maybe if the chickens are fed enough GMO corn that will happen and the price of chicken wings will come down.  :P

That is really not too far off from the U.S. Buffalo Wild Wings pricing, BWW would actually be cheaper on Tuesday nights when they have a weekly $0.50/each special.

 

If Pizza Hut is able to sell wings for those prices, then Buffalo Wild Wings in the Philippines might just convert the U.S. menu prices into pesos and round off the numbers. Maybe with some cheaper local beer and drink options.
