Buffalo Wild Wings Flies Into Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
Airport Officials Celebrate Grand Opening with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
ATLANTA – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officially welcomed Buffalo Wild Wings® with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, September 10.
Buffalo Wild Wings®, winner of scores of best wings and best sports bar awards, opened its newest location at Hartsfield-Jackson in August 2013, bringing its mouth-watering wings, great beer selection and ultimate sports viewing experience to travelers. Buffalo Wild Wings® is the latest opening on Concourse D-Centerpoint.
“I’m pleased to welcome Delaware North and PhaseNext Hospitality as they provide travelers with another terrific dining option,” said Hartsfield-Jackson General Manager Louis Miller. “The opening of Buffalo Wild Wings® represents the next exciting phase in our expansion project on Concourse D, and it will greatly improve our customers’ travelling experience. This is a great location – it’s vibrant, comfortable and it offers a wide range of games to watch while travelers wait for their flights.”
“We are very excited to bring the Buffalo Wild Wings® experience to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, and we are thrilled to be a part of this dynamic community,” said Kathy Benning, Executive Vice President, Global Brand and Business Development for Buffalo Wild Wings®.
In addition to a ribbon cutting ceremony, attendees enjoyed traditional and boneless wings and entered to win door prizes for Buffalo Wild Wings® gift cards. Georgia Tech cheerleaders and Buffalo Wild Wings® mascot Blazin’ Bill entertained the crowd before keynote speakers gave brief speeches.
The Buffalo Wild Wings® at Hartsfield-Jackson features 24 beers on draft and 45 big screen and HD televisions where guests play trivia and watch sports while dining on wings and other offerings in a fun and social atmosphere. Its boldly flavored menu includes boneless wings, specialty burgers and sandwiches, finger foods, wraps, salads and Naked Tenders®, but the main attraction continues to be Buffalo NY-style chicken wings as well as its 21 signature sauces and seasonings. Early travelers can take advantage of the breakfast menu and try the Chicken and Waffles – an item that has quickly become a crowd favorite.
Power outlets are located throughout the restaurant and at the bar, so that guests can recharge their portable devices. The spacious 4,800-square-foot restaurant has floor to ceiling windows and can seat up to 198 guests who are looking for a place to enjoy a view of the runway.
The restaurant is open daily from 6 a.m. until last flight departure from Concourse D. For more information, call 404-763-0770.
