Is Wild Birds Unlimited a Franchise?

In 1981, Wild Birds Unlimited (WBU) began as a single store owned by Jim Carpenter in Indianapolis, Indiana. By 1982, the first franchise store was opened in Michigan. Other stores soon followed and today there are over 270 stores across the U.S. and Canada. They are all individually owned and operated but gift cards can be purchased and used at any WBU store. We own the East Lansing, Michigan store and work very hard to find lots of products made locally.

By providing unique products, services, expertise and atmosphere, our stores not only offer an inspiring one-of-a-kind shopping experience; we also provide quality information, excellent customer service, specially developed feeders and custom seed blends.

Together Wild Birds Unlimited (WBU) stores feel it’s important that "we bring people and nature together®." With every purchase you make, WBU stores donate a portion of the proceeds to support education, conservation and wildlife viewing projects at wildlife refuges, parks, sanctuaries and nature conservancies throughout North America.
