Anchor Bar Award

The Anchor Bar created The Original Buffalo Wing in 1964 and now over 50 years later serves more than 70,000 pounds of Buffalo chicken wings per month. The Anchor Bar is a landmark in Buffalo and a destination for Buffalo visitors every year. Their bottled wing sauce now retails in over 5,000 supermarkets worldwide. With several locations in the Buffalo area and more under development outside of New York, Anchor Bar is well positioned to expand through franchising.

Franchisees opening a traditional location will need 4,500 to 6,000 plus square feet of space, will receive a protected territory and can open multiple locations if qualified.  While restaurant experience is helpful it is not required as the training and ongoing support is very comprehensive.
