Serving The Best Dang Biscuits & Donuts
We opened Rise in Durham in 2012 with a simple vision…serve great food at an affordable price point, made with premium quality ingredients by people who care. In other words, not your typical breakfast spot! Since then, we’ve expanded to ten locations in North Carolina, locations in Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and Tennessee, and new stores on the way.
Rise serves Southern Biscuits, Righteous Chicken and Sweet Stuff all day long, waitstaff-free and with a swift service line. Our fluffy, buttermilk biscuits are made from scratch every thirty minutes and are filled with savory ingredients ranging from crispy bacon and country sausage to fried green tomatoes and our famous Righteous Chicken. What makes our chicken Righteous? It’s tenderized, brined in buttermilk, fried to golden-brown perfection and then served on a biscuit or as strips with your choice of toppings and sauces. No meal is complete without an order of Hashpuppies, our signature cheesy, Idaho potato treats. Top off your Rise adventure with Counter Culture Coffee and Sweet Stuff including fruit fritters, cinnamon biscuit rolls and our creative donuts like the Creme Brulee.
Rise is about more than just crave-worthy food. We’re indebted and committed to our customers, employees, and community. We are proud of our company culture and care deeply about the community that has grown up around our food. We love involving customers in the process, and hearing about what you like and don’t like. Talk to us, we’ll respond.
