Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Buffalo Wild Wings unveiled a new logo last week and said that it was redesigning its restaurants.

The new logo is not dramatically different. The colors are the same, and a winged buffalo is still the centerpiece.

But the tagline "Grill & Bar" has been replaced with "Wings. Beer. Sports.," and the buffalo image has been tweaked.

"The new buffalo is more muscular and athletic," Minnesota-based Buffalo Wild Wings said in a news release. "It has enlarged wings, narrowed eyes and upward-turned horns -- giving it a more powerful look."

Redesigned restaurants will be unveiled in late 2012, with the first one being in Cincinnati and the second in San Diego. Most of the new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants opening in 2013 and many remodels will feature the new design.
