Two New Fox Restaurant Concepts Brands Coming to Tucson – Flower Child & Doughbird

Flower Child and Doughbird will both open in the fall of 2022 at Campbell Plaza

Fox Restaurant Concepts, founded by Tucson-bred Sam Fox, is bringing two first-to-market restaurants to Tucson, late 2022: Flower Child and Doughbird. Both restaurants will open at Campbell Plaza, just down the road from their last restaurant to open in the market, Culinary Dropout.

We’re always looking for great opportunities to grow in Tucson and finally found the perfect location for these two restaurants,” said Fox. “It’s been a longtime goal of ours to bring Flower Child to Tucson, and we are excited to be able to do it alongside Doughbird, a concept that we are just beginning to grow. During what’s been a challenging time for our industry, we’re grateful for our loyal guests in Tucson and hope that they will enjoy these restaurants time and time again.”

Flower Child looks forward to bringing its soul-satisfying mission of serving positively delicious vibes to the Tucson community. Chock full of nourishing goodness, Flower Child caters to all lifestyles from vegetarian and vegan, to meat-eating and gluten-free, to keto and paleo with their customizable, made-from-scratch menu. Flower Child is more than your typical healthy eatery – it is a place where guests can come and fill their soul (and their bellies) with goodness.

Doughbird’s infamous duo of pizza & chicken makes this restaurant the perfect neighborhood spot. Tucson guests can expect both hand-stretched and Detroit-style square pan pizza alongside rotisserie and crispy chicken, all with unexpected twists. “It’s a bit of an odd bird, if you will, but we love it,” said Fox. And don’t miss an extensive list of out-of-this-world sauces for dipping & dunking. Savor a fun family weeknight dinner or grab a slice & sip on a cocktail at happy hour. Doughbird is dedicated to fun and ever-changing flavor combinations, so you can always add a bite of interesting to your day.
