Rise Up with the Better Brunch Franchise

At Biscuit Belly, we don’t do boring. We’ve thrown conventional breakfast to the wind in favor of craveable culinary innovations people can’t help but share… on social media, at least. We didn’t join the brunch game; we revolutionized it! Our high-demand fast-casual approach and menu stacked with chef-driven creations and thirst-inducing concoctions has the whole family coming a-callin’.

Now, we’re looking for experienced multi-unit restaurateurs to join our family of franchise experts and bring Biscuit Belly to markets hungry for an exciting brunch concept.

    Born and Baked in the South

    Renowned Executive Chef Tavis Rockwell spent months developing our proprietary biscuit recipe, and your guests will taste this labor of love in every bite. Our menu pairs these biscuits with mouth-watering tastes like goetta sausage gravy, buttermilk fried chicken and house-smoked brisket. The result is an irresistible new twist on Southern comfort favorites and something for everyone.

    When You’re Here, You’re Home

    No matter where we are, Biscuit Belly feels like a local treasure. Our mood-boosting bright colors and energetic staff are part of the community staple-feel that keeps our guests coming back for more. We’re not just inspired by our Southern roots, we live our values every day. From our kitchens to our corporate offices, our culture is a smorgasbord of genuine hospitality, passion for scratch-made cuisine, and down-home manners that would make grandma proud.

    Fast-Casual, Not Fast Food

    Biscuit Belly is everything restaurant operators love about fast-casual and nothing they don’t. We’ve simplified ordering with our flavor-packed menu’s nichey nature, maximized sales with curbside pickup and delivery, and streamlined operations with standardized systems and single shifts. That way, you can provide your guests the highest quality foodie experience with fast-casual convenience.
