Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) had a great morning that saw company shares skyrocket Friday.
Buffalo Wild Wings gets its chicken from Tyson Foods (TSN) which had some good news regarding its chicken input costs today. The wings chain could be benefitting from Tyson Food’s decision to use lower feed ingredients to produce chicken.
The restaurant also benefited from a sales report by Chipotle (CMG) that detailed the chain’s new fast-casual pizza idea. Buffalo Wild Wings is looking to do something similar with its PizzaRev chain. The company could also be benefitting from the Super Bowl wing frenzy coming up this weekend.
BWLD stock is up 6.5% Friday afternoon.
