Firebirds Wood Fired Grill will reach a company milestone with the opening of its 50th location September 9 in North Wales, a Philadelphia suburb.
Firebirds’ first restaurant opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2000. Fast-forward to today, Firebirds has become a national success with locations in 19 states. It has been named one of America’s Top 10 Contemporary/Traditional American Restaurants by Consumer Reports, is a recipient of multiple TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence, was named one of CNBC’s Top 10 hottest restaurant brands and recognized by FSR Magazine as one of America’s Top 50 Emerging Restaurant Brands.
“We’re just getting started,” says Firebirds CEO Mark Eason. “We look forward to building off of our success by continuing to create a culture of innovation and excellence among our amazing team members.”
The restaurant made a major design change to its prototype in 2017, opening the first newly designed model in Jacksonville, Florida. This prototype, featuring modern design and décor with aspects such as light-colored woods, charred black brick, floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed steel, contemporary light fixtures, abstract artwork and pop of teal to complement Firebirds’ signature red and orange, has been carried forward in new restaurant openings across the country.
Firebirds’ new North Wales restaurant will follow this energetic design concept that also provides a warm, inviting atmosphere where guests are drawn.
Its open concept gives guests views of the exhibition kitchen, wood-fired grill, award-winning FIREBAR and lounge.
Additionally, guests can enjoy their meals and drinks on a comfortable, enclosable patio perfect during any season. As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to give back to the community, Firebirds donates year-round $1.25 per glass of lemonade ordered in the restaurant to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), which helps fund childhood cancer research. Firebirds has contributed more than $1.6 million to ALSF over the past six years.
