Buffalo Wings & Rings is continuing a growth streak with the opening of a family-owned location in Elk Grove, CA. The newest Buffalo Wings & Rings is owned by Su and Jim Cho along with partner Dr. Bruce Hartley. The trio will host a private VIP event on Monday, August 10, 2009, followed by the restaurant’s official grand opening on Wednesday, August 12, 2009. The brand new eatery is located at 8839 Sheldon Road at the intersection of Sheldon Road and Elk Grove Florin.

This is the first entry into the restaurant business for all three partners. Su and Jim own and operate a successful dental lab in Sacramento. Both reside in Elk Grove. Dr. Hartley, who hails from San Jose, runs a dental practice.

“We are all excited about the prospect of bringing Buffalo Wings & Rings to the Elk Grove community,” says Jack Fitch, general manager of the Elk Grove Buffalo Wings & Rings. “The people in this area are looking forward to having a place with casual décor and a delicious and diverse menu. The restaurant is very relaxed. Buffalo Wings & Rings offers consistently great food and a fun, family-friendly atmosphere.”

Buffalo Wings & Rings is creating 45 jobs for the people of Elk Grove. The restaurant plans to host student nights for local high schools and colleges, and the owners have invited police, fire and city officials to join them for the VIP opening.

“We have a lot of school-based and community programs in the works,” Fitch says. “The leadership of Elk Grove – as well as the people – have been great to us as we prepare to open.”

The Buffalo Wings & Rings menu offers many menu items, including traditional and boneless Buffalo-style wings, and hand-breaded chicken tenders – all available in nine sauces with five customizable levels of heat. The menu also features burgers, salads, gyros, and appetizers including nachos, chili fries, popcorn shrimp, mozzarella sticks and curly-q fries.

Buffalo Wings & Rings Elk Grove will offer seating for 122 diners inside and 30 on the patio. The restaurant also features arcade games, wireless Internet service and 14 high-definition TVs. The full-service bar includes 12 taps with plenty of locally brewed beer.
