The former Tap House sports bar on Ionia Avenue
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- There are new plans for a Buffalo Wild Wings in downtown Grand Rapids. A franchise president tells WZZM 13 news he is working on an agreement to buy the former Tap House sports bar on Ionia Avenue and turn it into a Buffalo Wild Wings.
Developers say they have considered downtown Grand Rapids for 15 years. They hope to build a two story deck at the site and hire up to 80 workers.
The franchise hopes to close on the building within the next month and open the new restaurant by October. Buffalo Wild Wings already has four restaurants in the Grand Rapids area, but the downtown location is not expected to compete with those businesses.
