New Buffalo Wild Wings owner cuts 130-plus corporate office jobs

It comes just a few months after it was bought by Arby's.

Jobs are being lost at Buffalo Wild Wings' Minnesota headquarters, just a few months after the company was bought out.

Inspire Brands confirmed to Bring Me The News that it has eliminated 132 roles at B-Dubs' corporate office in Golden Valley as part of the "integration of our brands."

The company said that all those losing their jobs "were offered severance agreements and outplacement support."

Inspire, which owns the Arby's restaurant chain, bought Buffalo Wild Wings in November in a $2.9 billion takeover, which at the time prompted fears of possible job losses in Minnesota.

As part of a restructure, Inspire says it's keeping some roles in its Golden Valley office, but shifting some to its "Global Support Center" in Atlanta.

The layoffs will mostly happen later in the year, with less than a third happening in the next couple of months.

The Star Tribune reports that B-Dubs was employing 400 people at its Minnesota headquarters when Arby's offered to buy the company.

B-Dubs has had its head office in Minnesota for three decades, having moved from its original location in Ohio.

Now, it has more than 1,200 restaurants across 10 countries – half of which it owns and the others are franchised.
