Award winning fried chicken by the bucket load

Our founder Matt Harris started Thunderbird Fried Chicken in an old ambulance, hitting the street food scene with a bang and graduating to ‘bricks and mortar’ locations in 2019 after winning London WingFest for the Best Wings in London

Our goal is to make fried chicken great again. Our recipes are reinvented classics; we take traditional fried chicken recipes, analyse what makes them great, then improve every element using science and a good dose of creativity. And we serve it with a smile and good old-fashioned hospitality.

  • Our service is fast-casual, with a premium menu
  • We have a flexible foot-print 900-2500 sq ft and work in a variety of locations from high street to food markets
  • Our interiors match our food; inspired by retro Americana, reinvented for a modern audience
  • Our menu is adaptable to meet local tastes and occasions
  • Streamlined national and international supply chain
  • Experienced management team and sector leading chairman
