Making Tough Decisions to Grow Your Business
Join Sally Smith, President and CEO, Buffalo Wild Wings for Lunch*
Thursday, July 30
7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Hilton Minneapolis, 1001 Marquette Ave.
We have a seat at our table just for you and a guest! Come join other business professionals for lunch this Thursday, July 30, as we learn how wings, beer and sports have been a winning combination for fueling the growth strategies of Buffalo Wild Wings. When current president and chief executive officer Sally Smith took the helm in 1994, the company grew from 35 locations to more than 1,100 restaurants across the US, Canada, Mexico and now even the Philippines. Sally Smith, our keynote luncheon speaker, will share some of history, business and financial decisions that have helped to grow B-Dubs into the international restaurant and brand that we know and love today. She’ll highlight how short-term financial decisions can have a long-term impact on a business. Now that you are hungry to learn more, join Minnesota PRSA, Business Wire and NIRI Twin Cities on July 30, 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. at Hilton Minneapolis (1001 Marquette Ave. Minneapolis, MN).
*Please note the lunch provided will be a chicken entrée, but not Buffalo Wild Wings.
