Locally-owned and operated since 1966, Biscuitville serves fresh Southern Inspired food the old-fashioned way. Our hand-kneaded biscuits are prepared in front of guests every 15 minutes, each and every day.
Biscuitville is a family-owned and privately-held chain of quick service restaurants that specializes in freshly made Southern breakfast and lunch foods. Biscuitville FRESH SOUTHERN has 54 locations in North Carolina and Virginia. Originally based in Graham, North Carolina, the corporate headquarters moved to Greensboro, North Carolina, in 2007.
Biscuitville began as a side project in 1966 when Maurice Jennings, a former flour broker, opened two bread stores, Mountainbrook Fresh Bread & Milk, in Burlington, North Carolina, and began selling fresh take-out pizzas from the stores. By 1972, Jennings had six Pizzaville locations operating in the North Carolina Triad and Southern Virginia. Biscuits became a part of this operation when they began selling biscuit breakfasts to bring in additional income in the mornings. The biscuits were so popular that Jennings opened the first biscuit-only store in Danville, Virginia, in 1975. Eventually, all of the Pizzaville locations were converted into Biscuitville stores. By 1982, 25 Biscuitville restaurants were open serving made-on-site fresh biscuits from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every day of the week. In 1996, Burney Jennings, Maurice’s son, took on the leadership of the family business.
