December 12, 2011 - - - The Wild Bird Centers of America (www.wildbird.com) has designated the Washington, DC metro area as a top market where the company plans to open more locations in 2012. The company now supports franchisee-owned stores (www.wildbird.com/franchisee/search) in Annapolis, Bethesda, Gaithersburg, Rockville, Severna Park in Maryland and Alexandria, Burke, Lake Ridge and Oakton in Virginia.
According to Wild Bird Centers of America CEO George Petrides, Jr., "The Washington, DC market has the business demographics we need and the bird-feeding traditions we have supported for over 26 years. The metro area offers an abundance of excellent birding sites, including Rock Creek Park , the largest natural area in the District,? as well as the famous Potomac Valley Migratory Flyway which offers excellent birding opportunities year-round, especially in spring and fall, to see migrating warblers, waterfowl and songbirds in their thousands. Feeding resident wild birds in urban and suburban backyards is especially popular in the Washington DC metro area because it features mature habitat, ideal for feeding and watching wild birds every day of the year. Our company is renowned for quality private-label products and packaging, efficient distribution and customer service and our franchise system is designed to provide franchisees with top-notch support and industry leadership."
