Buffalo Wild Wings coming to Buckhannon

A Buffalo Wild Wings bar & grill is coming to Buckhannon, with the opening slated for late January 2014, officials announced Monday.

The eatery will be the anchor for the New Northridge Shopping Plaza located at 4 Northridge Drive, Buckhannon, in front of the recently built Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham, a press release from the Upshur County Development Authority. Northridge Development, LLC made the announcement, according to the release.

“We are thrilled to join the great community of Buckhannon and bring the fun and one-of-a-kind experience of BWW to families and sport’s fans in the area,” Taylor Bigley, marketing director for Buffalo Wild Wings, said in the release.

“Our goal is to be open for the 2014 Super Bowl,” Bigley said. “Upon opening, we plan on employing 50+ jobs and partnering with local schools, sports teams and community partners to bring the BDubs spirit to Buckhannon.”

Buffalo Wild Wings will occupy approximately 6,000 square feet of the 30,000 square foot plaza. Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed in January, with Phase 2 opening in the spring of 2014 with the addition of nine retail/business storefronts.

“Northridge will provide a unique shopping and dining experience, designed to be a convenient and inviting addition to our community,” said Jennifer Fluke, co-owner and spokesperson for Northridge Development, LLC. “We are currently working with several other businesses and hope to make those announcements soon.”
