Dirty Birds Chicken Fundraiser | Dirty Birds Chicken will bring a new dining experience to the city that everyone can enjoy.
Launched in 2018, Dirty Bird chicken specializes in chicken and waffles but also offers other soul food staples. The name “Dirty Birds” comes from our delicious signature dry rub used for the chicken.
Hi, my name is Shauntel Green. I am the owner of Dirty Birds Chicken, a soon-to-be restaurant and to-go shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One year ago, I decided to go in business with a few cousins to pursue our passion for cooking. We planned to offer Pittsburgh a twist on Chicken and Waffles that the city hasn’t seen. The business started out with three partners, including myself, and we began selling food out of the kitchen in my town home. Before we knew it the people of the community became our biggest supporters, lining up outside of my door waiting for the day’s special. I quickly outgrew my little home kitchen and the two other partners dropped off to purse their own endeavors. Having such a following in the community I continued to offer menu items every Tuesday night at a local bar and kitchen. This created the opportunity to pursue Dirty Birds as a full time career to help support my family. Though the local bar was convenient and would accommodate the rush in customers one night a week would not be enough. Additionally, we’d miss the brunch customers we’d get on the weekend. With a larger client base there is a sense of urgency to open a permanent establishment for Dirty Birds.
I am opening my very own restaurant! Sometimes I can’t believe it. Nothing brings me more joy than cooking for people and very soon I will be able to do just that. With your contributions to this campaign I will be able to secure a location and purchase the last key pieces of equipment that I need in order to start feeding my customers. In supporting Dirty Birds you will also be supporting the community around us. When designing our restaurant the most important aspect for us was creating an experience and product everyone in the community can enjoy. Our hope is that at Dirty Birds our neighbors will find a vibrant, comfortable and most importantly delicious space that they can visit often.
So… You might be asking yourselves, what it is that we need from you? Well, we need your financial contributions and in exchange we are offering you perks that will fill both your bellies and hearts with joy!
We aim to raise $25,000. This money will go towards securing a space and purchasing big and expensive pieces of equipment.
– Secure lease
– A 20-quart Hobart mixer
– A point of sales system
– A ton of little pieces of equipment (ladles, spoons, plates, pans, sheet trays and much more)
– It will also help purchase some of our opening inventory
Nothing in life is free. I believe that wholeheartedly, which is why we have taken the time to put some really great perks together to thank you for your support.
Thank you in advance for your support. If you find that a financial contribution is not right for you we hope that you can support us by visiting us at the restaurant as often as you please or checking us out on one of the social media platforms.
