The Sports Bar franchise with the famous buffalo wings Story

It All Began with Two Hungry Guys…

The year was 1982. Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery had recently moved to Ohio from Buffalo, New York. Everything was great until one day, the two were craving wings — but not just any wings — authentic quality Buffalo-style chicken wings. With none to be found anywhere nearby, Jim and Scott had two choices: make a road trip back to New York or open a wings sports bar close to home. Lucky for us, they chose the latter, and over the next 10 years, Jim and Scott went from one chicken wings restaurant to seven, including locations in Ohio, Indiana, and Colorado. They began franchising in 1992 and by 1993, eight more restaurants were added.
