On February 19th, the Gillette City Council held a public hearing to consider the renewal of liquor licenses in Gillette for the licensing period of April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. During that public hearing, regional businessman, Doug Davis, talked to the council about his hopes to bring a Buffalo Wild Wings location to Gillette in 2014.
Davis informed the council of his hopes to secure a Bar & Grill Liquor License. Gillette Mayor Tom Murphy informed Davis that Buffalo Wild Wings would be very welcome in Gillette but per Wyoming State Statute, the council was not able to award a liquor license without the business having secured a physical address.
Murphy told Davis that the city currently has two Bar & Grill Liquor Licenses available, and as soon as the council has an assurance of a lease, a liquor licenses can be issued. Davis said he would like to have some assurance of his own. Davis thanked the council for their consideration, and said he looks forward to the possibility of working with them again in the future. Davis recently opened a Buffalo Wild Wings in Cheyenne as well as breaking ground in Casper, he encourages the public to check out what Buffalo Wild Wings has to offer at one of their many national locations or online.
