LAYTON -- A popular nationwide restaurant may soon have a presence in Davis County.
One of the consent items on tonight's Layton City Council agenda is an on-premise restaurant liquor license for Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, to be located at 1201 N. Hill Field Road.
That address would put the restaurant in front of the Layton Hills Mall. However, mall officials are tight-lipped about the possibility of a new restaurant.
Gaylen Spencer, general manager of the mall, said that he cannot comment on any new addition until an announcement comes from the mall's owner, CBL & Associates Properties.
Brad King, marketing director at CBL & Associates Properties, said that he could not comment because no lease has been signed.
Because city council agendas are public information, Ben Hart, Layton's economic development specialist, confirmed that Buffalo Wild Wings is looking at coming to Layton.
"This on-premise liquor license would obviously be needed to accompany a full-service restaurant," Hart said. "They're making an application for an address on the mall site. In addition to the liquor license, they have also submitted construction drawings."
Messages left at Buffalo Wild Wing's corporate office were not returned.
Mall officials have said that there will be two new restaurants added in the parking lot near the new Dick's Sporting Goods store.
Buffalo Wild Wings Inc., headquartered in Minneapolis, has more than 700 Buffalo Wild Wings locations across 43 states, according to information on the company's website. Buffalo Wild Wings officials announced in April that the first Utah location would be in Lehi. That location is expected to be completed in early next year.
The restaurant chain features a variety of boldly flavored, made-to-order menu items, including its namesake Buffalo, N.Y.-style chicken wings.
Hart said that Buffalo Wild Wings is considering multiple locations in the state and Layton is fortunate to be one of them.
"We expect that if this new restaurant is built, we'll be able to attract more people from across the state and have more people coming into the Layton area to shop."
