Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken, based in Durham, North Carolina, is continuing its national expansion with its latest opening in Overland Park, a Kansas City suburb. The store, which opened last month at 7060 W. 135th St., marks the chain’s second in Kansas City.
“2023 is anticipated to be a year of growth and new opportunities for us,” Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken CFO, Ken Priest, said in a company press release. “After celebrating our 10-year anniversary last year, the next decade of Rise is already off to a promising start and we’re looking forward to bringing our unique offering of fresh, premium quality food at an affordable price point to more neighborhoods.”
Founded in 2012 by Culinary Institute of America trained Chef Tom Ferguson in Durham, North Carolina, Rise has 20 stores open with over 100 franchise locations under contract.
