Buffalo Wild Wings Names LaTrelle's Amidst Top 25 Restaurateurs
March 2012

Buffalo Wild Wings honored Latrelle's Management Corporation's Houston Hobby location as one of its Top 25 Restaurants during the company's Spring 2012 Conference in San Antonio. With more than 825 locations in 48 states and Canada, Buffalo Wild Wings bestowed the award to a short list of restaurants demonstrating excellence in everything from sales to sanitation and economic stability.

"We were thrilled to hear LaTrelle's Management Corporation listed among the restaurant operators recognized for this prestigious honor - and surprised in that we did not know this recognition was in the works," says LaTrelle's COO Wally James, Jr. "We later found out the winners on this list are nominated and chosen by Buffalo Wild Wings management, which makes our trophy all the more meaningful."

Buffalo Wild Wings also honored LaTrelle's Houston Hobby location for superior performance under the award category of Same Store Sales Increase.

"We credit our 33.72% sales increase over the previous year to a successful remodel of the Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant within Hobby Airport in Houston, better training and enhanced management efficiencies," adds LaTrelle's CFO Kenneth James. "Of course, a significant part of the credit goes to the restaurant for their popular brand and vision toward aggressive expansion."

LaTrelle's opened the first airport-based Buffalo Wild Wings in 2009 at Houston's William P. Hobby Airport, where LaTrelle's is credited with introducing Buffalo Wild Wings' first breakfast program. The restaurant is now one of the most popular attractions for travelers and employees in the airport.


LaTrelle's Management Company owns and operates a portfolio of 25 top franchises in several of America's busiest airports, cities and venues. Headquartered in Houston, LaTrelle's manages 12 restaurants in Houston's Hobby and IAH Airports, DFW Airport, and SEATAC Airport in Seatle, and 13 freestanding locations throughout Texas. LaTrelle's has contributed to an expanding list of "firsts" for the restaurant industry including opening the first-ever airport Wendy's, Subway and Buffalo Wild Wings. Other LaTrelle's brands include Pete's Coffee and Tea. A James Family Company, LaTrelle's is ACDBE certified. Visit for more information.
