“Serving the Best Dang Biscuits & Donuts”


Chef Tom Ferguson opened Rise in Durham, North Carolina, in 2012 with a

simple vision…to serve great food at an affordable price point and to make food with premium quality ingredients by people who care. In other words, not your typical breakfast spot! Since then, they’ve expanded to ten locations in North Carolina as well as locations in Maryland, Virginia, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Savannah, Georgia, with even more new stores on the way.

Rise has been named a Fast Casual Magazine Top 100 Mover & Shaker,  their biscuits have been written about in Food & Wine Magazine, and Rise appeared on an episode of Food Network’s Donut Showdown.

Rise Savannah’s owners are mother and son Cristol and Shane Johnson, Savannah natives. They serve biscuits, donuts, and sandwiches every day, without a wait staff but with a swift service line. There is fresh coffee, juice, and milk for you to enjoy while you wait.

They offer unique biscuit sandwiches featuring favorite fillings like buttermilk-brined fried chicken, crispy bacon, salt-cured ham, and country sausage topped with egg, cheese, and various spreads. You can also get any of their sandwiches on a potato roll, including the righteous chicken which is a Savory Buffalo Chicken with house-made buffalo sauce, shaved celery and blue cheese sauce, and other limited time offerings. Yeast and cake donuts are available throughout the day and feature unique flavors like the Maple Bacon Bar and Crème Brulee. The menu includes old favorites like country ham, pimento cheese, and roasted pork loin alongside the unexpected flavors like king cake and pineapple basil.

Shane explains, “Rise is about more than just crave-worthy food. We’re indebted and committed to our customers, employees, and community. We are proud of our company culture and care deeply about the community that has grown up around our food. We love involving customers in the process and hearing about what you like and don’t like. Talk to us, we’ll respond.”

Visit the website at risebiscuitsdonuts.com to skip the line and express order online. Rise also offers catering for your party, wedding, or office event.

Everything at Rise is prepped and cooked fresh daily, so donuts and biscuits sometimes sell out and are subject to change. Come early!

Rise Savannah is located at 10 W. Broughton Street, open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call Rise at (912) 201-3599.  Tell them Travelhost sent you!
