Buffalo Wild Wings (there is sound on that link) has opened a franchise in Urbana. The location is the new plaza that was built on the by-pass, between the Cracked Claw and the high school. As far as I know, it’s the first place to open in that plaza, which will include, I believe, a drug store, a dry cleaner, a Chinese restaurant and a Ledo’s pizza. From the FNP business section:
Gary Weber, a former journalist, said he “fell in love” with the restaurant business.He was a sports writer for the Martinsburg (W.Va.) Journal, but worked at a restaurant there and found he preferred food to reporting.
With the opening of Buffalo Wild Wings at the Urbana Village Shopping Center, he now has six franchise locations.
“I have to open 15 under the agreement with Buffalo Wild Wings,” he said. Besides the Urbana site, he has eateries in Hagerstown, Westminster, White Marsh, College Park and Bowie. He is working to get one open in Rockville by the end of the year.
The 6,200-square-foot Urbana site seats 349 patrons, including outside dining. Weber has 130 employees.
The restaurant not only serves wings, but wraps, burgers, salads and sandwiches.
The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday. Guests can dine in or carry out orders.

If you haven’t been to Urbana recently, you’ll be shocked at how much it has changed in the last year. Well, last several years actually.
