About Our Company

There are approximately 35 Wild Bird Center outlets serving communities across the United States and Canada. Wild Bird Center stores are famous for providing customers with the wonderful customer service and the best birdseed and private-label seed blends available, all proven to attract a wide variety of backyard birds. Our stores also offer an extensive selection of private-label feeders, binoculars, birdbaths, nest boxes and hardware plus an exciting variety of backyard and nature-oriented gifts, books and gardening items.

Beginning in 1985 with a single store in Cabin John, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C., the Wild Bird Centers of America, Inc. has subsequently grown into a leading franchisor in the birding industry. 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.

Our Founder,

George Petrides, Sr.,


When I opened our first Wild Bird Center store in 1985, we could only imagine how many people would share our love for wild birds and for the business that since has developed to serve thousands of customers every day as a growing retail bird supplier. Since that time, interest in this exciting pastime has soared, and birdwatchers across the U.S. and Canada have found that they can expect quality products and sound advice from our growing family of stores.

Whether you're a customer or a future Franchisee, myself, our storeowners and staff have done our very best to provide you with the most useful and important information possible as a premier retail bird supplier. We are extremely proud of everyone in our company and we know you will enjoy this visit with the Wild Bird Centers.
