Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Buffalo Wild Wings unveiled a new logo last week and said that it was redesigning its restaurants.

The new logo is not dramatically different. The colors are the same, and a winged buffalo is still the centerpiece.

But the tagline "Grill & Bar" has been replaced with "Wings. Beer. Sports.," and the buffalo image has been tweaked.

"The new buffalo is more muscular and athletic," Minnesota-based Buffalo Wild Wings said in a news release. "It has enlarged wings, narrowed eyes and upward-turned horns -- giving it a more powerful look."

Redesigned restaurants will be unveiled in late 2012, with the first one being in Cincinnati and the second in San Diego. Most of the new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants opening in 2013 and many remodels will feature the new design.

ATLANTA -- A chain of chicken restaurants is finding Georgia, and especially metro Atlanta, to be one of its best markets.

Charlotte, N.C.-based Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'N Biscuits expects to add nine new restaurants, including seven in metro Atlanta, by the end of 2012.

Most are franchises, but at least two of the new stores will be company-owned, according to Bojangles' Restaurants Inc. executive vice president Eric Newman.

The chain plans an additional seven stores in 2013.

"The growth has picked up in Atlanta more than any other," Newman said. "It's our No. 1 growth market right now."

Restaurants typically are 3,800 square feet and employ about 15 people, Newman said. Each location requires an investment of about $1.7 million.
