Biscuitville FRESH SOUTHERN Partners with N.C. Companies on New Lunch Menu
September 27, 2014
Biscuitville has announced some new partnerships as it continues to roll out its lunch menu.
“We know customers want their food to be fresh, affordable and consistently good, and they want to know where that food is coming from,” President and CEO Burney Jennings said. “We created our new Fresh Southern menu and expanded our partnerships with local companies to meet those needs, and to give people a new place to dine for lunch that offers fresh-made, delicious food.”
The lunch menu is now offered at all Burlington, Graham and Mebane locations starting at 11 a.m. All Greensboro and Eden locations offer it, too. Into 2015, it will be rolled out in all 54 Biscuitvilles in North Carolina and Virginia. The breakfast menu will continue to be served all day in each restaurant. Biscuitville closes at 2 p.m.
Biscuitville partners with Stan’s Pimento Cheese of Burlington for its pimento cheese and bacon biscuit and its new lunch sandwich. The partnership existed previously but has expanded with the new lunch menu, according to Steffany Reeve, director of consumer and lifestyle brands.
Sherry Hudgins Tapp, current owner of Stan’s and daughter of the founder, said “Our partnership with Biscuitville is a sweet friendship between two small family companies that together produce a classic southern product. We are one of the few vendors that uses the highest quality, real Wisconsin cheese in our product, and we know it is something that both customers and Biscuitville values.”
Biscuitville’s BBQ Bruiser sandwich is made with local pulled pork from Chandler Foods BBQ in Greensboro.
“Biscuitville and Chandler Foods grew up together and share the principal belief that quality ingredients and people have made our companies successful,” said Jeff Chandler, president and son of the founder. “The Fresh Southern lunch menu was the perfect way for our two local family businesses to come together. The pulled pork featured on the new lunch menu is prepared from scratch and pulled by hand, just the way Biscuitville prepares its food.”
Biscuitville’s other partners are:
- The Mount Olive Pickle Co., supplying pickles for Biscuitville’s hand-breaded fried pickles;
- Pride of the Morning, providing eggs;
- Renwood Mills, supplying cornmeal for Biscuitville’s hand-breaded fried okra, pickles and catfish filets;
- Sanford Milling, providing flour;
- Suncrest Farms, providing country ham;
- Swaggerty’s Farm, providing sausage; and
- S&D Coffee & Tea.
The lunch menu was developed with the help of Chef Andrew Hunter, famous for his involvement and new menu development work with Wolfgang Puck Worldwide. Maurice Jennings founded the company that became Biscuitville in 1966 in Burlington. Today, it’s based in Greensboro and employs nearly 900 people.
