NC Biscuit and Doughnut Shop Rises to the Occasion

As Southern fare gains popularity across the U.S., one Durham, North Carolina–based biscuit and doughnut shop is rising to the occasion with a newly launched franchising program. Just two years in to the venture, Rise Biscuits & Donuts founder Tom Ferguson is ready to bring his award-winning sweet and savory treats to new markets.

“We’re so nomadic these days that there are a lot of Southerners living in places like Seattle and Portland, [Oregon],” Ferguson says. “Whenever you see a biscuit outside of the South, it really attracts people.”
