Rise Biscuits Donuts from Durham, N.C., will be opening its first South Carolina location at 1507 Woodruff Road, Greenville. The store, located in front of Hobby Lobby and next to Fresh Market, plans to open in February 2018.

“We are excited to bring the best dang biscuits and donuts to Greenville,” said Peter Cotter, who leads an experienced ownership group. “We know Greenville will fall in love with Rise at first bite, and we look forward to being a part of the thriving business community.”

Cotter says they are also actively pursuing a second Greenville location not yet announced.

The quick-serve concept will feature counter ordering and indoor seating in its 2,000-square-foot store with outdoor patio dining and parking around the store. Rise Greenville will also offer online express ordering for same-day pick up and catering for off-site events, parties, and business meetings.

Rise Biscuits Donuts first opened in Durham, N.C. in 2012, netting multiple local and national awards, including being ranked among the Best Biscuits in the U.S. by Food & Wine magazine, and a TV appearance on Food Network’s “Donut Showdown.”

Rise Biscuits Donuts currently has 14 stores open in North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, and Virginia. There are more than 100 franchise locations under contract.

Yeast and cake donuts are available throughout the day and feature flavors like the Maple Bacon Bar and Crème Brulee. Rise also serves biscuit sandwiches all day, featuring buttermilk-brined fried chicken, crispy bacon, salt-cured ham, and country sausage topped with egg, cheese, and spreads.

Lunchtime sandwiches available on a choice of a biscuit or on a potato roll include Rise’s Savory Buffalo Chicken with house-made buffalo sauce, shaved celery, and blue cheese sauce, and limited-time offerings like the Cubano with roast pork loin, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard. Plenty of vegetarian options are also available, including the Huevos Rancheros Biscuit, the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich, and the fresh garden salad topped with veggies and biscuit croutons.

The store will be open from 6 a.m.–2 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
