Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken

Our Story

Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken is an award-winning, innovative fast casual concept providing fresh, premium quality food at an affordable price point. Founded by a CIA trained chef, we serve homemade biscuits filled and topped with bold flavors, gourmet ingredients and lots of love and are known for our 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.

Rise has been named to QSR’s 40/40 List for 2021: America’s Hottest Startup Fast Casuals, Fast Casual Magazine Top 100 Mover & Shaker and our biscuits have been written about in Food & Wine Magazine.

The Rise franchise opportunity provides a business platform with simple operations, premium products, a crave-worthy menu and strong consumer demand. Our best practices, systems and procedures and solid, well documented unit economics attract sophisticated multi-unit franchisees. We are currently targeting the top 40 media markets–please check the map below for availability.
