Buffalo Wild Wings Revs Up Pizza Business with Grand Opening of Second PizzaRev in Minnesota

Build-Your-Own Pizza Concept in Edina Set to Open on August 21

MINNEAPOLIS - August 21, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWLD), known for its restaurants focused on wings, beer and sports, is expanding its pizza business with the opening of its second PizzaRev franchise restaurant in Edina, Minn. in suburban Minneapolis on August 21. The new location of the Los Angeles-based, build-your-own artisanal pizza shop follows Buffalo Wild Wings' first PizzaRev restaurant opening in Hopkins, Minn. - and the first PizzaRev outside of California - this past May.

Following a ribbon cutting with Buffalo Wild Wings CEO and President Sally Smith, Smith will help create the first pizza.

Guests will "craft their own" 11" artisanal-quality pizzas loaded with 30+ fresh, premium ingredients of their choosing, and served piping hot from a custom-built, 9,600 pound, open-flame, stone-bed oven in less than three minutes, for just $7.95. Conveniently located at 7529 France Ave. S. by Centennial Lakes Park, the restaurant will be open every day of the week from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

"We're really excited to open our second location of PizzaRev, bringing this fresh approach to the pizza category to more Minnesotans - and soon, to guests across the country," said Kathy Benning, executive vice president and chief strategy officer and business development of Buffalo Wild Wings. "Buffalo Wild Wings is all about bringing guests a unique experience at a good value, and the fabulous response we've seen at our Hopkins restaurant has only reaffirmed our enthusiasm for this dynamic concept."
