Anchor Bar has announced the company is expanding into other markets.

“The Home of the Original Chicken Wing” will soon open a new franchise in Richmond, VA., which will be the first Anchor Bar location in the Southeast. It is scheduled to open this coming winter. Another restaurant was opened in Toronto, ON., on Sept. 29.

“These two new locations are another exciting expansion for our brand, which continues to grow across North America,” said Vice President Mark Dempsey of the Anchor Bar Franchise & Development Company.  “We’ve added a total of three new locations this year, starting with Amherst, N.Y.  To us, it’s a sign that people are hungry for Buffalo’s Original Chicken Wings — and we’re happy to serve them up!”

There are currently nine franchise locations, including three in Ontario, Canada, one in Darien, N.Y., one in Williamsville, N.Y., and one in Amherst, N.Y. The Original Anchor Bar is located on Main Street in downtown Buffalo.
