Fast-casual, all-natural chicken sandwich restaurant Birdcall is expanding out of Colorado and entering the Arizona market by opening its first restaurant in Scottsdale this month. Located at 7204 E. Shea Boulevard, this will be Birdcall’s eighth location for the Denver-based company, founded in 2016.
“Our team is beyond thrilled to bring Birdcall to the Valley of the Sun, and we can’t wait to welcome guests to our amazing space in the heart of Scottsdale,” says Peter Newlin, Birdcall co-founder and CEO. “We truly believe Birdcall offers a differentiated dining experience because we are so focused on every little detail – from our premium, all-natural foods, to the level of elevated hospitality our team members provide to each and every guest who engages with the Birdcall brand.”
Newlin says Birdcall stands out from its competition because of its commitment to making natural foods accessible. Birdcall at Scottsdale and Shea will be open for lunch and dinner, serving delicious chicken sandwiches, crispy tenders, and healthy salads with vegetarian and plant-based options available. Birdcall also offers specialty sauces made in-house from scratch, like their signature Bird-B-Q Ranch, Birdcall Sauce, and Buffalo Blue Cheese, made with 100% natural ingredients.
Birdcall’s bar program will feature a selection of house-made craft cocktails, including margaritas and frozen beverages, as well as beers on draft from local breweries. Additionally, the Scottsdale location will serve several fan-favorite specialty milkshakes.
Every Birdcall restaurant showcases unique, contemporary designs that provide spacious, comfortable seating with a warm and welcoming ambiance. For example, the Scottsdale restaurant features a large, colorful mural painted along the exterior wall inspired by the Arizona landscape. The dog-friendly outdoor patio includes tables with umbrellas for ample shade. In addition, guests can experience a streamlined, one-of-a-kind ordering process using technology-driven kiosks for dine-in or take-out orders or opt to use their convenient double-lane drive-thru for diners on the go.
The community-based brand prides itself on serving 100% all-natural foods and giving back at least 1% of sales to the local community. To support local businesses, Birdcall has collaborated with State Forty Eight on co-branded shirts that will be available for purchase in-store for $15, where $1 from each t-shirt sold benefits the State Forty Eight Foundation. The restaurant has also formed a relationship with Chaparral High School to show support for the Firebirds and its students by sponsoring several school events, including prom and senior sunset.
To bring a taste of the Valley to the restaurant, Birdcall has also partnered with Phoenix-based Noble Bakery to locally source fresh buns for each sandwich, as well as breweries like SanTan Brewing Co and Greenwood Brewing.
Birdcall plans to open ten restaurants in the next three years in the Phoenix metro area. A second Arizona Birdcall restaurant is slated to open in San Tan Village in the fall of 2022, with a third location slated to open in Phoenix in late 2022.
Birdcall Scottsdale will be open daily from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. For details, visit eatbirdcall.com.
