The economy may have slowed, but business is still booming in North Suffolk.
The newest business addition to the area will be a Buffalo Wild Wings in the Harbour View West Shopping Center.
The restaurant will be located across from Harris Teeter and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2011, according to Vicki Zima, regional marketing manager for Buffalo Wild Wings.
“We are the headquarters for wings, beer and sports,” Zima said. “We have a great atmosphere, 40 high-definition televisions and numerous big screens and all major sports packages so our customers can watch any game that’s on.”
Harbour View’s will be the seventh location in the Virginia Beach area, according to Zima. It is one of two planned for 2011, and another is in the works to arrive in 2012.
The restaurant will also bring 100 to 125 jobs to the community, as well as support for local vendors — the restaurants use all local vendors for produce and supplies, Zima said.
“We also pride ourselves in being involved with the community,” Zima said. “We do numerous fundraising events for organizations and do a lot of work for sports teams from high school to college to intercollegiate to Little League.”
Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar was founded in 1982. Its restaurants feature a variety of menu items including its namesake Buffalo, N.Y.-style chicken wings. The Buffalo Wild Wings menu specializes in 18 signature sauces and seasonings.
