"If you’re trying to create a company, it’s like baking a cake. You have to have all the right ingredients in the right proportions." - Elon Musk, Tesla
Great shopping experiences do not happen by accident. The combinations of many factors – location, store design, trade dress, product selection, marketing and much more - are the benchmarks of great retailers. For over 30 years the Wild Bird Center system has provided expertise and experience in critical areas of business operations so you can focus on the key factor: sales. Retail is about sales and small businesses are based on building customer relationships. We provide the necessary tools so you can concentrate on these crucial elements of success.
Dress for Success
“You walk into a retail store, whatever it is, and there’s a sense of entertainment and excitement and electricity, you wanna be there” - Howard Schultz, Starbucks
Great retailers know the value of trade dress. Natural cedar and wood fixtures set the tone from the moment your customer enters the store. Every detail is important from our river rock entry to our trademark seed wall. Our fixtures, color scheme and fixtures make your customer feel at home and leave a lasting impression.
Wild Bird Center stores are designed to provide a customized fit and finish for each location. This spectacular look is economical and does not require extensive construction. Our trade dress and fixture program is functional and versatile, giving each franchisee the ability to maximize their store’s visual impact at all times.
