With a few weeks until the opening of the first location, Birdcall, is already furiously working on the second one. All about the fried chicken and fried chicken sandwiches, the sister concept to Park Burger and Homegrown Tap & Dough, is making a serious push to up the tech game in fast-casual restaurants. What does that mean? For Birdcall and the team it means creating the software and the operating equipment to allow for a restaurant that has virtually no front of the house staff. Kiosks and an app replace the servers and cashiers, though a apple-genius-like store manager will likely always be on hand to oversee the operation on the premises. That, of course, unless you order from your car.
Birdcall 2, which will be going into the old Twisters on Evans and Franklin (1535 E. Evans), will feature a first drive-thru for the company. The team is working on the design with Scheme Works (which also concepted Homegrown Tap & Dough and the first Birdcall) and LivStudio, a local company who has the Denver Central Market and the new Il Posto on its portfolio.
The goal is to open the second Birdcall by mid-June.
