Buffalo Wild Wings continues to spread its wings across North America. Twin Cities Business says the Golden Valley-based restaurant chain has reached deals with three franchise groups to open restaurants in Mexico later this year.

“We are delighted to announce that we are bringing our unique and social sports viewing experience to Mexico,” Sally Smith, CEO and president of Buffalo Wild Wings, said in a news release. “In our restaurants across the U.S. and Canada, we see how sports bring people together and we are confident that Buffalo Wild Wings’ stadium-like atmosphere will attract sports fans in Mexico as well.”

The new restaurants will feature Buffalo Wild Wings’ new design, which is built to capture the look and feel of a stadium, and provide the ultimate in sports viewing. Construction is expected to begin soon.

Last year, Buffalo Wild Wings announced further expansion into the Middle East and Puerto Rico. It expects to open the first of those restaurants later this year.

“As we explore new markets, we take the time to learn about the countries, cultures and potential partners,” Smith added. “We are pleased to be working with three franchise partners who all have extensive experience in restaurants and retail – and most importantly, a deep understanding of the market and our target Guest.”

Buffalo Wild Wings has more than 900 locations across 49 states and Canada, including 29 in Minnesota.
