Buffalo Wild Wings stop selling eggs from battery cages
As a die-hard sports fan, one of my favorite things to do is to watch my Philadelphia Flyers defeat their opponents on the ice. If I’m not at the game itself, I am definitely watching on television. In the last few years, my friends and I have made Buffalo Wild Wings one of our most preferred sports-bars to check out the games. Although, this is no longer the case after recently learning Buffalo Wild Wings supports animal cruelty for no apparent reason.
I recently learned about how Buffalo Wild Wings confines its egg-laying chickens to battery cages. I was shocked to learn of this practice and how awful it is for egg-laying hens. These birds are actually confined so tight in a cage where they are not afforded enough space to even extend their own limbs. I’m not cool with supporting such abuse to animals and I don’t know anyone else who is either.
After learning of Buffalo Wild Wing’s support for battery-cages, I did some clicking around online, and I learned most major franchises around the United States are phasing out these cages from their supply chains. A few examples are: McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Denny’s, TGI Friday’s, and Subway. So what makes Buffalo Wild Wings any different than these other power-house corporations?
I’m a normal guy and like any other normal guy, I eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. But not anymore. Not after learning Buffalo Wild Wings’ gross method of how it gets its eggs! This franchise is literally supporting the caging of animals, and if I wouldn’t let it happen to my dog Sophie, then I’m not going to support it with my money.
Please sign my petition urging Buffalo Wild Wings to end its support of farms that cage egg-laying hens.

As a decision maker, you can do the right thing by helping hens who are laying eggs for Buffalo Wild Wings. Clearly, your customers are interested in making this change for the much needed improvement of animal welfare. Not only your customers, but your competitors as well. McDonalds, Taco Bell, Wendy's, Subway and many others have already made a public commitment to help hens. So why are you dragging your feet on this important issue?
As cool as it is to go to Buffalo Wild Wings, I will no longer support this franchise until it pledges to go cage-free. This issue is necessary for not only helping animals, but also to show you are listening to your customers. I look forward to once again attending Buffalo Wild Wings when there is a public cage-free policy in place. Thank you.
