About

The Orange Buffalo is the product of two school friends, Nick and Mike, who went on a road trip across America and decided to bring a piece of it back to the UK. What started as a distant dream, lots of Tequila and a hearty handshake became a reality in 2012 with the opening of UK’s first dedicated buffalo wing food truck right in the heart of Shoreditch. The name is derived from the iconic orange tangy sauce, ranging from medium Original, hot Woof Woof, mango sweet and spicy Vincent and to the dangerously hot Viper (which has its own Viper Challenge, for all those sadomasochists).

Our wings were an instant hit, winning the UK’s first Chicken Wing Competition in 2012. We also picked up Time Out’s Best Restaurant in Shoreditch and Hoxton at the 2016 Love London Awards and became runners up in 2018. This is all thanks to our loyal fans, the customers who come in every lunch hour for a portion of their favourite wings at the Truck, the travellers that fly in from all over the world (Egypt, Japan and different parts of America) and the brave hearts battling that Viper burn!

Kick starting the UK’s buffalo wing movement, we were on fire and in 2017 took over the kitchen at the famous music venue, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen. This is where we developed our menu and introduced mouthwatering, tender breaded chicken thigh sandwiches. Smothered in our range of sauces, squeezed between a buttered and toasted bun, with melted Swiss cheese and a range of toppings.

Now six years down the line, The Orange Buffalo is hotter than ever, and we can’t wait to spread our wings! So, become part of history and help us open our first stand alone shop in Tooting-named one of the coolest neighbourhoods on EARTH by Lonely Planet! We have secured the site, have all the designs and plans ready and this sum of funds will just get us over the £240,000 line. 

We feed you amazing wings and sandwiches and we ask you to feed our imagination and ambition to do more. 

C’mon…show us some love! Your support means the WORLD.

Risks and challenges

We have been operating for over 6 years now, established a very strong brand and have systems in place to deliver what we are famous for - the best buffalo wings in the UK.

We've built this business from a truck in Brick Lane to a permanent residency in Hoxton Square and are ready for the next step. Our closely knit team of cocks and hens runs the coop seamlessly everyday. We have combined real entrepreneurs, chicken wing enthusiasts, foodies and experts in the industry to deliver the best product and the best experience for our loved customers.

However, as with any business and new venture, there will be day to day challenges. Especially within the food industry, making sure the quality of food is consistent will be an important aspect to consider. It is incredibly important for us to make sure each portion of wings is made with love and care.

We work with several trusted suppliers. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with them and have a mutual understanding of each others needs and expectations, therefore we have a strong base to work off and make sure this project is a success.

With systems put in place and experience of thriving in the industry, we are ready to embark on this journey and use our wings to fly! We hope you believe in this dream as much as we do, please help us develop further and do what we do best.

Love, peace and chicken grease!
The Orange Buffalo Team
