A new Buffalo Wings & Rings restaurant will open on Monday, June 21, in Springdale, Ohio, for a private VIP event. It will open to the public on Wednesday, June 23.

A special grand opening celebration will be held Saturday, July 17, featuring a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. with city officials. The doors will open at 11 a.m. and the first 100 customers that day will receive a free Buffalo Wings & Rings pint glass, T-shirt, and coupon for $5 off a purchase. Four of the pint glasses will have a $100 gift card inside.

The new location’s franchisees, Edvin Rajauskas and Val Kirielius, are both Lithuanian natives. Their similar backgrounds led Rajauskas and Kirielius to become friends when they met in America. They are using their restaurant and foodservice experience – along with a strong work ethic – to pursue their goals together.

“To open a Buffalo Wings & Rings is a fantastic opportunity, and we could not pass it up,” Rajauskas says. “We just thought: ‘If not now, when?’”

“This is an exciting time for us,” Kirielius says. “The people who live in the area are really looking forward to having a Buffalo Wings & Rings. And we believe our Express Lunch exclusive offers a casual and valuable lunchtime dining option for Springdale’s business professionals. There are currently very few options within this niche and price point for lunch, so we’re excited to offer that option to the community.”

The new location will feature more than two dozen televisions – including a large projection TV – featuring full access to NFL Sunday Ticket and UFC events. The restaurant will offer seating for more than 250 diners, including outside dining and a private party room.

Buffalo Wings & Rings is located at 11305 Princeton Pike in Springdale between Tri County Parkway and Merchant Street. The store will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 513-772-2111.
