Almost a third of Buffalo Wild Wings' location are within 100 miles of Hurricane Irma's forecasted path.

Over the last week, Hurricane Irma devastated businesses in Florida and the wider Southern US.

Chains including Sonic, Cracker Barrel, and Steak 'n Shake were forced to close locations as the hurricane moved north after battering much of the Caribbean.

Investment firm UBS used a forecasted path of the hurricane to calculate Irma's expected impact on close to 300 companies.

UBS identified 90 companies who conduct more than 10% of their business in the impacted region. Many of these companies are restaurant chains with a significant presence in the South.

Here are the eight restaurant chains hit hardest by Hurricane Irma, according to UBS data.
