Buffalo Wild Wings Opens First “Social Distancing” Restaurant
Buffalo Wild Wings has opened a new social distancing restaurant called GO. The first of these new restaurants will be located in Atlanta and will offer a contactless experience. Customers will place orders online or over the phone and their food will be placed in a heated locker until they are able to pick it up. Beer and alcohol will not be available.
John Bowie, Chief Operating Officer of Buffalo Wild Wings said, “I am thrilled to introduce the new ‘GO’ model in our own backyard of Atlanta, Georgia. We’ve seen the success of this model over the past six weeks, with our takeout and delivery business growing over 140%. Buffalo Wild Wings ‘GO’ is perfect for friends and family who want to enjoy our authentic, New York-style buffalo wings at home.”
As restaurants are allowed to reopen there will be restrictions on capacity so it'll be interesting to see how many restaurants follow this model.
