Award winning fried chicken by the bucket load seeing multi-unit franchise partners in Ireland

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.
