Cincinnati, OH January 13, 2010 With a hot new Buffalo Wings & Rings restaurant taking flight in Bedford, IN, franchise partners Mike Weyer and Ann Bennett are better prepared for the craziness this time around, because they know what to expect. Buffalo Wings & Rings Bedford opens its doors to the public on Wednesday, January 19, 2011, after a private VIP function on Monday, January 17th. A special Grand Opening Celebration Event will be held Saturday, January 29, 2011 featuring a mid-afternoon wing eating contest between the athletes and coaches of Bedford North Lawrence High and Eastern Green, a charitable check presentation to BNL Star Boosters, and a post-dinner performance from the BNL band.

Four of those pint glasses will have a $100 gift card inside!
The restaurant is the chains sixth location in the state of Indiana, and the second Buffalo Wings & Rings restaurant for franchise partners Weyer and Bennett, who also own a successful location in Jasper. The two are looking forward to the upcoming opening on the 19th with anticipation, as well as a little anxiety.
"Its a wild ride from the moment those doors open on our first day of operations. The days are long and the nights even longer!, said Bennett. But, in the end, its the most gratifying exhaustion I have ever experienced!"
Bennett and Weyer opened their Jasper location a little more than two years ago, and know what it takes to be a successful restaurant: quality people working among the four walls, and solid community partnerships outside those four walls.We plan to become entangled in the North Lawrence Community School District with consistent fundraisers and athletic sponsorships right out of the gate, said Weyer. Additional community support will come as its presented and fits into the Buffalo Wings & Rings brand model. Weyer also hopes to score some points with support at the local college level with Indiana University in neighboring Bloomington.
