GLEN ECHO, MARYLAND February 15, 2012 -- The Wild Bird Centers of America has targeted the Greater St. Louis, MO Metropolitan Area as a high-potential market for company expansion in 2012 to meet increasing franchisee and retail customer demand. The company now supports a Wild Bird Center store in St. Louis (www.wildbird.com/franchisee/ssl/home).
According to Wild Bird Centers of America CEO, George Petrides, Jr., "The St. Louis metropolitan area offers excellent demographics, an extensive public parks system and many retail strengths to support our specialty retail birding stores. Bird feeding is one of this country's most popular outdoor hobbies, so the market potential is huge locally. In addition, backyard birding is very popular in St. Louis communities because the mature habitat enjoyed by most neighborhoods is ideal for feeding and watching wild birds. With hundreds of different bird species resident in Missouri and along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, there is certainly a wonderful variety of colorful birds to watch and feed," states Petrides.
"The Wild Bird Centers of America is a leading backyard bird feeding and watching retail franchise system, renowned for quality private-label products and packaging, efficient distribution and customer service. Our franchise system is designed to provide franchisees with top-notch support and industry leadership", states Petrides.
