INTRODUCING:
STARBIRD
A new generation of American dining starts with Starbird, a super premium fast food restaurant transforming the traditional drive-thru experience in Silicon Valley
 
With the nation’s first super premium fast food concept, accessibility is now at your fingertips. Starbird reimagines the traditional drive-thru with the removal of the car queue and the addition of mobile ordering and payment.  Guests download the app and navigate through the sleek and easy to use interface to place an order from anywhere.  Select “I’m here!” upon arrival and pull into one of the numbered parking spots; a server delivers the order within five minutes. Guests can also park for an experience in the dining room or on the outdoor patio.
“Our lives and our expectations have changed dramatically since the advent of the original drive thru. With Starbird, we’re adapting to the new needs of our tech-savvy and culinary-conscious community. We’re changing the traditional fast food landscape with new expectations, new standards, and new ideals for quick service dining,” says Noveshen. “Flavor and convenience need to come first. We tested over 100 different chicken preparations before we found this perfect crispy chicken recipe.”
