Buffalo Wings & Rings Names New Corporate Chef
Buffalo Wings & Rings, the Cincinnati-based elevated sports restaurant franchise with more than 80 locations across the globe, recently brought on restaurant and franchise industry veteran Dan Admire as Corporate Chef. Admire will lead efforts to further build and develop a menu in line with the brand’s commitment to providing a club level experience that can be replicated across franchise and corporate-owned restaurants.
Most recently, Admire became a partner in fine dining seafood restaurant Brendon’s Catch 23 in Louisville, Ky, before joining Buffalo Wings & Rings at the beginning of 2019. He previously worked in the hotel segment as an executive chef with Marriott, as corporate executive chef at John Q. Hammons Hotels and Resorts and spent 14 years at Houlihan’s Restaurants, Inc. where he became vice president of culinary and oversaw menu development for Houlihan’s, J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks and Devon Seafood Grill. While executive chef at Fedora Café in Kansas City, which was ranked in the top ten by USA Today, he earned recognition and acclaim for his cutting edge approach and incorporation of ingredients that he imported from overseas.
Since new ownership took over Buffalo Wings & Rings in 2005, the company has been focused on providing a club level, VIP experience for guests which includes an elevated menu not found at typical sports bars.
