Our corporate staff provides advice and services to franchisees and is in constant touch with a wide-range of vendors and industry organizations as our company continues development of a popular line of specialty and private label birding products for our franchisee.
"I enjoy the independence, but also the knowledge and resources available to me from other franchisees and corporate office. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion for birding with customers and using my creativity and business expertise to work toward my store's continued success."
Kevin & Cheryl White, Franchisees since 2008
"Shortly after I began working for the Wild Bird Center in 2001, I realized I had finally found the meaningful and fulfilling career I'd always wanted. Our customers are kind, the work allows creativity and the franchisor makes me proud to be associated with the Wild Bird Centers of America. And most of all, my work is still fun after all these years!"
