ROCKINGHAM—Biscuitville Fresh Southern, a local family-owned restaurant known for its authentic, Southern-style breakfasts, will open a new restaurant at 1214 E. Broad Ave. in Rockingham on Tuesday, May 11 at 5 a.m. Biscuitville will close its restaurant at 302 East Broad Avenue in Rockingham on Sunday, May 9 at 2 p.m. to prepare for the opening of the new location.

The new Rockingham restaurant grand opening will benefit The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, a nonprofit organization that has provided food for citizens facing hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina for 40 years. The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina is an affiliate member of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity. They work to provide access to nutritious food that nourishes families, children, seniors, and individuals.

This restaurant location will be one of the locations that will have a re-opened dining room with limited seating. Additionally, from 8 a.m. until noon on May 11, there will be a socially distanced distribution of prizes given out (while supplies last). Guests also will be able to sign up for a chance to win Free Breakfast for a Year* with the use of a special QR code, allowing for contactless registration. Biscuitville will award Free Breakfast for a Year by randomly selecting 10 of the entries received on opening day. No purchase necessary to enter. Selected winners will be notified the following week.

(* 10 free breakfast combo coupons will be awarded.)

“Our new Rockingham restaurant features the best of what our guests have always loved about Biscuitville and provides a fresh, new look with additional amenities, including a double drive-thru. The design was carefully crafted to be warm and welcoming and provide a comfortable, family-friendly dining experience. We’re looking forward to seeing our loyal customers from our former location and believe they will feel right at home in our new restaurant.” Biscuitville President and CEO Kathie Niven said. “We also want to encourage our guests to visit our new restaurant on grand opening day to help support our friends from The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Ten percent of our proceeds for the first week after opening will go towards helping them with their local efforts in Rockingham to assist with food insecurity within the community."

The Broad Avenue restaurant operator is Travis Farmer, who has been a member of the Biscuitville family since 2017. Born and raised in Southern Pines, he graduated in 2005 from Saint Augustine’s University in Raleigh with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Farmer has worked in the restaurant industry since 2000 in a wide range of positions at other quick-service restaurants prior to joining Biscuitville.

“Travis is someone who has dedicated much of his professional career to the restaurant industry. He has a passion for restaurants and his team members, and he works very hard to make sure our guests have the best experience possible,” Niven said. “Both Travis and his team look forward to seeing the familiar faces from the former Broad Avenue site, as well as seeing new ones.”

Biscuitville, which has 64 restaurants in North Carolina and Virginia, has remodeled dozens of its existing locations during the last six years as part of a growth phase and has also introduced several new, innovative menu items, such as the Spicy Chicken and Honey Biscuit. All of Biscuitville’s new restaurants, the remodeled locations, and new menu items are built on Biscuitville’s foundation of serving fresh, scratch-made food using locally sourced ingredients, including custom-milled flour from Henderson; country ham cured in Wilkesboro; coffee from Concord; eggs from Monroe; and all-natural chicken from Mt. Airy, Georgia. 

Biscuitville is known for biscuits made fresh every 15 minutes and, as part of its new signature design, Biscuitville features a large biscuit window, which allows guests to view the biscuit-making process. This feature is so iconic to Biscuitville’s brand, the company proudly posts Home of the Biscuit Window Since 1966 in front of its biscuit makers. In addition to the biscuit window, other highlights of the new Broad Avenue restaurant include:

  • Exterior features resembling a reclaimed southern barn, with a tin roof, barn doors and gooseneck lights
  • Interior features that combine a modern look and feel with southern heritage through industrial hardware, blue painted ceilings inspired by southern porches, and mixed materials like wood, metal, and tile
  • Large photos and artwork that capture scenes of the local Rockingham neighborhood and community
  • An enhanced beverage area with expanded drink options, including Salisbury-based Cheerwine
  • Conveniences such as free Wi-Fi and electrical access for devices when dining rooms re-open.
