“The PizzaRev team is thrilled to have Buffalo Wild Wings invest in our business.  Their strong track record and stellar reputation within the industry make them an ideal partner as we strive to reach new customers excited by our concept,” said PizzaRev co-CEO Rodney Eckerman. “PizzaRev’s unique and interactive approach is revolutionizing the pizza industry, and it’s exciting to have a similarly innovative brand like Buffalo Wild Wings take notice.”
