Birdcall Hatches a Plan To Move into Whole Foods

The chicken restaurant wants to move into Union Station next

Adam Larkey

The Birdcall invasion of Denver continues with a new location opening at Whole Foods Market at Union Station in mid-November.

Fried chicken sandwiches, salads, milkshakes, breakfast biscuits, beer and wine make the menu of this fast-casual restaurant from chef Jean-Philippe Failyau and Peter Newlin, president of Park Burger.

Colorado Native Foods provides the cage-free chickens that are fed an organic, vegetarian diet. Bonus: Ingredients come from local resources when possible.

Once open, the restaurant plans to feature about 100 seats inside and out, along with a bar with 24 local taps. A breakfast menu kicks off the morning, paired with Denver’s Corvus coffee. The menu includes a variety of all-natural chicken sandwiches with buns from Aspen Bread Co. and local company The Spice Guy’s Southern flair and Nashville hot sizzle, plus salads, milkshakes made with Southern inspiration such as banana cream pie and red velvet cake, and iced tea from local tea maker Teatulia.

Customers order their food from a kiosk with an interactive menu. Once placed, patrons can watch their names on a large screen with an exact time and countdown display showing when the order will be ready. Customers then pick up their trays in a custom hexagon-shaped bin.

Later this year, customers will be able to order ahead using the Birdcall app.

Birdcall debuted its first Denver location in August at 800 E. 26th Ave., and a third location at University of Denver will open later this year.
