Our Roots

Starbird was established in 2014 with the mission to reimagine fast food across America. Spearheading a new era of American fast food, Starbird brings the finest elements of QSR and fast casual together to create an experience that seamlessly delivers convenience, culinary credibility, and bold flavors. The only “super premium fast food” restaurant of its kind, Starbird is transforming the traditional fast food experience through its mobile app ordering system and “taste first” mission. 

Serving distinct from-scratch items using wholesome ingredients, Starbird’s “positively delicious” menu offering is satisfying, flavorful and thoughtfully crafted to bring the joy back to fast food. An innovative ordering platform and technologically advanced cooking methods make it possible for Starbird to introduce the evolution of traditional drive thru, reimagined for modern-day living.
