THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Buffalo Chik’n® – from Wing to Burger
The original recipe of globally popular Buffalo Chik’n® Wings was created around 55 years ago! This is reason enough to have a closer look at its origin and at the future of the top-selling dish as there is a lot of sales potential in it. SALOMON FoodWorld® was the first to bring the US original from Buffalo to Europe in 1995 and is today the unchallenged Chik’n® wings expert. So it is a logical consequence that it is now us again who are surprising the community with the hottest Buffalo Chik’n® products!
A product discovered by chance is capturing everybody’s hearts.
Buffalo, US federal state of New York: It was night-time, and Teressa Bellissimo was ready to call it a day in her bar, the Anchor Bar. All of a sudden, the entrance door of the bar was flung open and her son and some of his friends came in – all very hungry. Teressa conjured up a spontaneous midnight snack for the boys with whatever was left in the kitchen: chicken wings in an extra-hot marinade with a mysterious buttery taste. The wings came with a blue-cheese house dressing and some celery sticks. The boys were tickled pink, and so Buffalo chicken wings became a fixed part of the menu overnight. This was the start of something very special: still today, the Anchor Bar and its Buffalo chicken wings attract visitors from all over the world.
We were the first: original chicken wings in Germany.
Teressa’s Chik’n® Wings spread across the federal state of New York and then all over the US in the 1970s and 1980s. This triumph called for the SALOMON FoodWorld® trend scouts to have a closer look at the successful snack. The German premiere of the extra-hot marinated Buffalo Chik’n® wings was an extra-hot event! Their fame and popularity skyrocketed and were closely connected with the new, thriving finger-food category. The trendy spiciness was and still is the reason why the Buffalo Chik’n® wings were and are hot-selling products. Another advantage of the wings is that they considerably boost your sales of beverages too!
Buffalo Chik’n® goes burger.
Our original Buffalo Chik’n® wings have, in the meantime, become one of the best-selling products in the finger-food segment. The buttery yet spicy flavour is one of the most popular and most well-known flavours worldwide. Furthermore, chicken is consumed in many cultures and fits well into any trendy diet. The burger market, however, has not at all exhausted all the ways it can use chicken. Strong solutions and more variations are needed! So it would be reasonable to combine two success stories then, wouldn’t it? This authentic Buffalo taste is available now as a burger!
The high-flying addition to the burger range: Juicy, spicy and so popular – the recipe for the success of our Buffalo Chik'n® Wings as a burger. Original yet different – for greater poultry variety on your menu!
Hottie: Like the original from Buffalo, USA, the fleshy chicken wings have a spicy marinade with a fine butter note. Connoisseurs say: "These are best!". Only middle wings and upper wings used, fully cooked.
