Our Story


We believe success comes down to three things — outstanding food, great service and clean restaurants. It is easy to say, but it takes a strong commitment to consistently execute. Attention to detail, putting our customers’ needs first and a deep desire to be a great company help make the Wildflower a place where our customers want to be.


Atmosphere

Warm, comfortable, fresh and contemporary

The overall atmosphere in each Wildflower restaurant is warm, comfortable, fresh and contemporary. We build each Wildflower location knowing it is a reflection of our new neighborhood. Custom color schemes and original artwork differentiate each location, making them special for our communities.


Fresh Food

We simply love great food

We love tasting it, then talking about how great it tasted. We love making it, then sharing it with other people. When it comes to cuisine, it’s about making sure the food we serve is fresh, the ingredients are real and the taste is memorable.


In Five Steps

Our service style is fast and friendly

  1. Place your order at the counter.
  2. Grab a drink and take your sign to a table.
  3. We’ll bring your napkins, silverware and food.
  4. No need to clean up, we’ll do that for you.
  5. For to-go orders, please listen for your name.
