Chicken Sandwich Nws
Denver's Birdcall fried chicken sandwiches land in 3 Dallas locations
Fried chicken sandwiches from Denver are landing in Dallas: Birdcall, a small chain founded in 2016 that serves chicken sandwiches and salads, has signed on three locations in the DFW area, including Carrollton, Frisco, and Richardson, with another penciled in for Dallas.
The debut location has just opened, very softly, in Carrollton, in a former Taco Cabana at 3232 E. Hebron Pkwy.
Two others will follow:
- Frisco, at 5350 Preston Rd. Opening in summer 2023
- Richardson, at 507 W. Belt Line Rd. Opening in fall 2023
Birdcall was created in 2016 by Peter Newlin and Jean-Philippe Failyau, two industry veterans who previously founded Denver-based concepts such as Park Burger and Homegrown Tap & Dough.
Their goal with Birdcall was to not only offer a "better" chicken sandwich, but also to improve the way fast-food restaurants operate. In addition, they're heavy into supporting the local communities where they operate, and forging relationships with local vendors.
Their menu features eight sandwiches:
- Original with crispy chicken and dill pickles
- Deluxe, with crispy chicken, bacon, pepper jack cheese, tomato, and lettuce
- Nashville with Nashville hot sauce and sweet pickles
- Southern with crispy chicken, pimento cheese spread, and slaw
- Buffalo with crispy chicken, buffalo sauce, blue cheese slaw, and tomato
- Rancher with crispy chicken white cheddar cheese, bacon red onion jam, and BBQ sauce
- Grilled chicken Caesar with grilled chicken, a Parmesan cheese crisp, lettuce, tomato, & Caesar dressing
- Veggie with crispy tofu, peanut slaw, cilantro, and sriracha aioli
They also do chicken tenders and five salads: Buffalo chicken, Asian salad, chicken Caesar, Cobb (which they call "chop"), and a kale-quinoa. Sandwiches are $7 to $9, and salads range from $9.25 to $11.25.
Technology is a big part of their DNA. The company developed their own system to streamline ordering: You order from a screen, sort of like an ATM, and a leaderboard on the wall shows the status of your order.
A spokesperson has said they're planning on a handful of locations in the Dallas area, stating that Texas was a natural step, as they looked outside Colorado.
