January 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // Durham, NC - Rise Biscuits Donuts, Durham, NC’s award-winning concept featuring both sweet and savory breakfast and lunch options, announced today the opening of its first Charlotte location at Ballantyne Town Center, at the corner of Providence West and Johnson Roads in South Charlotte. The quickly growing franchise has opened five new stores in the last six months with plans to open additional locations in 2016. The Ballantyne location is scheduled for a summer opening.
“We are excited to bring this unique, creative chef-driven concept to Charlotte. Breakfast will never be boring again,” says Ryan Shoaf who, with his wife Allison, will open Rise Charlotte.
Rise Biscuits Donuts will be located in a new outparcel starting construction this month and will have the first Charlotte location of fast-growing City BBQ as its neighbor. Rise’s 1,400 square foot store will include a patio with outdoor seating and promises a culinary experience like no other.
The Shoaf’s plan to initially open three Rise restaurants throughout Charlotte. “We believe Rise fills a void in the Charlotte breakfast market,” says Allison Shoaf. “We cannot wait to serve and introduce this community to the best dang biscuits and donuts.”
Rise Biscuits Donuts currently has North Carolina stores open in Morrisville, Durham and two in Raleigh with new locations on the way in Downtown Durham and Carrboro.

Rise was founded in November 2012 and was voted Best Biscuit in the Triangle two years in a row and was ranked among the Best Biscuits in the US by Food & Wine magazine. The atmosphere is described as a mixture of ‘old school, new school and our school’ – incorporating trending menu items from around the country like cronuts, putting our own Rise spin on it, and perfecting everything by listening to customers through both in-store feedback and social media.
The brand serves up unique biscuit and donut flavors, with the menu constantly rotating in new features, as well as locally brewed coffee, in a to-go format that keeps our footprint at a minimum and keeps the long lines moving quick and efficiently.
In 2014 Rise partnered exclusively with Fransmart, the franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Qdoba Mexican Grill, to grow the Rise brand.For more information about Rise Biscuits & Donuts and franchising opportunities, visit www.risebiscuitsdonuts.com/franchise.
