Heard on the Call: Buffalo Wild Wings

Chain benefiting from lower wing prices, improving sales

During a conference call Tuesday with analysts, executives for the Minneapolis-based chain laid out 2011 goals of 13-percent unit growth and 18-percent earnings growth and expressed optimism that the brand could take advantage of low prices for its principal menu item.
