Western New York has plenty of choices for food. Whether it's local places or national chains.

Local places always reign supreme for Buffalonians, but we do love our fast food chains like McDonald's, Wendy's, Chick-fil-A, Burger King and Starbucks.

Buffalo and Western New York are still way behind many other cities and regions in the country, however, with places like Hardee's, Culver's, Bojangles and Raising Cane's not yet making their way to the region.

That could be changing though. Chick-fil-A finally came to Buffalo five years ago and Raising Cane's has opened in New York City, with Bojangles planning a northeast expansion to the New Jersey area.

There's a sweets place that is not yet in Western New York, but that will change by the end of 2023.

Buffalo Business First is reporting that Cinnabon is opening its first Western New York location at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls by the end of 2023.

There's 40 locations of Cinnabon in New York state but none currently in Western New York. They serve cinnamon rolls, baked goods, along with iced and hot drinks.

They're popular at malls and plazas, and one of these fast food establishments that amazingly have no locations right now in Buffalo.

We could very well start to see a lot of fast food places bringing their first location in Western New York over the next decade. I would almost bank on it, as this region is starting to get more and more noticed from food chains who are not based in the northeast or Great Lakes region.
