Classic American Restaurant Reaches Milestone
Charlotte, N.C. (Dec. 8, 2015) – Firebirds Wood Fired Grill celebrated its 15-year anniversary over the weekend on Dec. 6, 2015. The collection of polished-casual restaurants is based in Charlotte, NC and has 37 locations across the country with its 38th coming to West Des Moines, IA later this month. Firebirds is known for its personalized service, warm, inviting atmosphere and authentic wood-fired entrees, infused with bold flavors, fresh herbs and spices.
“Our founder Dennis Thompson blazed the trail 15 years ago, creating Firebirds as one of the very first restaurants in the polished-casual niche,” said Vice President of Marketing Stephen Loftis. “Throughout the years, we have continued to put our best foot forward to ensure a quality and consistent full-spectrum dining experience for all of our guests.”
Lauded as a ‘Breakout Brand’ by Nation’s Restaurant News and recognized on lists such as FSR’s ‘FSR 50: Top 10 Fast-Growing, High-Performing Chains’ and Technomic’s ‘Top 500 Restaurant Chains Report,’ Firebirds stays on trend by keeping its food and cocktail menus refreshed throughout each season. Its new Winter Features menu, available through Jan. 5, features ingredients such as Brussels sprouts, quinoa, avocados and dark chocolate. Popular items include the Grilled Swordfish, topped with lump crab, avocado, cilantro and chiles and served with warm quinoa salad and the Banana Cream Pie with caramelized bananas, salted caramel and dark chocolate. Alongside Firebirds’ seasonal selections, guests can try The Federalist chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon wines, featured through Jan. 5. In addition, children can order from a healthy kids’ menu with items certified by the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program, such as sirloin steak and wood-grilled mahi.
