This week, Buffalo Wild Wings celebrated the grand opening of its first PizzaRev franchise in Hopkins, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis. The new restaurant is the first outside of California for the pizza concept, and the first of several PizzaRev locations that Buffalo Wild Wings plans to open throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul market.
“Buffalo Wild Wings is all about bringing guests a unique experience at a good value, and we love how PizzaRev brings a fresh approach to the pizza industry — offering guests a truly interactive dining experience and premium offerings using only the highest quality ingredients,” Kathy Benning, EVP and chief strategy officer and business development of Buffalo Wild Wings, said in a news release. “We’re excited to open our first PizzaRev location right here in our hometown, and we’re confident that their unique take on pizza will thrive in Minnesota and across the country.”
The companies first announced their partnership in March 2013, with Buffalo Wild Wings taking a minority position in the fledgling pizza concept. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
