Buffalo Wild Wings Opens in Clarksville


Buffalo Wild WingsClarksville, TN – Buffalo Wild Wings opened their first restaurant in Clarksville yesterday with the Grand opening that attracted several hundred people who were hoping to receive wings for a year. This Buffalo Wild Wings tradition gives the first 100 people to enter after the opening a coupon booklet that entitles them to free wings each week for a year.

The flow of customers was extremely heavy throughout the day and into the evening with people standing in lines out the door and into the parking lot while waiting for seating. The parking lot was filled to overflowing with vehicles parked on the grass and overflowed across the way to Books a Million and Kohl’s Department Store lots. By the end of the day, the opening had broken all previous opening day records for the chain.

“We are noted for wings, beer, and sports” said Bob Cassady, the regional manager for the area. He continued “Our restaurants create an inviting neighborhood atmosphere that includes an extensive multi-media system, a full bar and an open layout. We appeal to sports fans and families alike.”

The multimedia system is impressive, to give their patrons the best in sports coverage they have 50 TV’s of various sizes in every corner that they could possibly have one. “A lot of our customers come to enjoy the UFC fights, which occur this Saturday. WWE Wrestling, and Austin Peay State University sports will also attract area sports fans to our restaurant.” Cassidy said. For the non-sports fan, entertainment options include playing Buzztime® Trivia or video games including Golden Tee Golf.
