Buffalo Wild Wings to test smaller format restaurants in Twin Cities

Buffalo Wild Wings announced Wednesday it will test a smaller restaurant concept called B-Dubs Express in the Twin Cities this summer.

The Minneapolis-based chain says the 2,500-square foot restaurants will offer streamlined counter service and more on-the-go options, including takeout and delivery. Each location will seat approximately 35-50 people.

B-Dubs Express will still cater to sports fans by providing TVs for game viewing and offering a selection of wine and beer.  

The company plans to open two pilot locations in Edina and Hopkins later this summer.
