Wings Chain Offers Electric Car Charging

Restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings plans to open electric car charging stations at all future central Florida locations.

The chain’s central Florida developer, Sunshine Restaurant Co., opened its first charging station jointly with utility Progress Energy Florida and charging infrastructure company NovaCharge.

The restaurant has also been holding an electric vehicle showcase, allowing guests to test-drive the Chevrolet Volt, the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Roadster.

Sunshine, which operates seven Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants, plans to open the charging stations at its new restaurant in Daytona Beach and at all future central Florida locations.

Customers will be able to find the stations at a NovaCharge website, ChargePoint Network Find Stations.

“As the number of electric vehicles grows over the coming years, we know customers will choose Buffalo Wild Wings over our competitors because of the ability to charge their vehicle for free while enjoying their favorite sporting event,” Sunshine Restaurant president and CEO Andrew L. Gross said.

McDonald’s has installed a NovaCharge car charging station at a restaurant in Cary, N.C. The chain has also installed an electric car charging station as part of a solar power installation in San Diego.

One thought on “Wings Chain Offers Electric Car Charging

  1. Great idea BWW. Electric cars are a fantastic green product to support, even though they probably are not sustainable at this point.

    If you really want to show your concern for the environment (or just get some customers to believe you are concerned), why not think of the simple things first, where we have the most to gain.

    Maybe start serving meals on plates that can be washed and re-used. I can’t imaginge how much trash this resturaunt chain must produce in a year with the disposable cardboard boats the wings are served on.

    To my knowledge, BWW is only an eat-in resturauant so there is no reason to continue using disposable dishware. A dishwashing program could easily be supported by this type of business. Then you could take some honest steps toward clling yourself an environmetal leader.

    BWW, your food is tastey, but I’m disappointed that a company with a target market of young people can’t read the writing on the wall.

    Sustainable business practices would make this company so much more attractive.
