Company Information

Wild Bird Centers of America Franchise
Our full service stores carry a complete line of birding products such as seed, suet, feeders, baths, houses, books, hardware, and garden accessories. We also promote nature conservation through Cornell University's Laboratory of Ornithology and local programs in schools, garden clubs and churches as well as forming alliances with local nature oriented institutions such as park districts, nature centers and birding clubs.


Where it all Began

Founded by George Petrides Sr., the Wild Bird Center retail concept started in 1985 with a single store in Cabin John, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C. Now a leading national retail franchise, headquartered in Glen Echo, Md. and just one mile from the original store, our franchise system has grown to nearly 100 Wild Bird Center and Wild Bird Crossing stores serving communities and the birding hobby throughout the United States and Canada.


The national headquarters of the Wild Bird Centers of America, Inc., located in Glen Echo, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC, offers a strong and dedicated franchise system. It supports all of our stores in both the United States and Canada.
