NRN: Starbird Completes Second Funding Round

We are excited to announce that Starbird, the brainchild of TCE and our venture division The Culinary Edge Ventures (TCEV) has officially completed a second round of funding, totaling at close to $5 million.

The group of investors is made up of several restaurant CEOs and private equity individuals including the largest outside investor Greg Dollarhyde of Zoe’s Kitchen and Baja Fresh. Dollarhyde has acted as a strategic investment partner and adviser throughout the entire Starbird development, and in addition to his guidance, Dollarhyde assembled a group of investors through his private investment arm, Dollarhyde Investment Group III.

President and CEO Aaron Noveshen is excited by this next phase of development and to have Dollarhyde so heavily involved:

“At Starbird we are working to transform the dull fast food landscape by utilizing super premium ingredients and evolving the traditional drive-thru experience with our mobile ordering and car-side delivery app. The response from the community has been extremely positive and we are thrilled to expand to a larger audience.”
