The Background Story

Kerrel and Nkem Thompson opened up Bird Pizzeria in Charlotte in Dec 2021. At the beginning of the pandemic, the couple thought about what they could do while everyone else stayed inside. After brainstorming, they realized there was a lot of leftover dough at home and decided to use it to bake homemade pizza.

For a while, they relied on takeout and delivery before reopening their doors for inside seating in April 2022.

Since its opening, Bird Pizzeria has become a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. On average, the pizzas sell out within 30 minutes.

In addition to pizza, Bird Pizzeria serves salads, sandwiches, and desserts. And even though the shop is open seven days a week, the Thompsons say they still find time to spend quality time together.

They were recently featured as one of Charlotte's Best New Restaurants by Forbes Magazine.
