A biscuit cafe with locations throughout the Southeast and in Texas will be coming to Five Points later this year.
The Flying Biscuit Cafe will open in the new Treadwell redevelopment in the 900 block of Harden Street by mid-December, according to a news release. A project of Los Angeles-based development group Campus + Main, The Treadwell is named in honor of Henrie Monteith Treadwell, the first Black student admitted to the University of South Carolina in 1963.
The Columbia franchise, located at 936 Harden St., will be owned by Midlands residents John Robert Barth and Kevin N. White, according to the release.
The first Flying Biscuit Cafe opened in 1993 in Atlanta. A new Atlanta location set to open next year will mark 14 Georgia locations for the franchise, which also has locations in Greenville and Mount Pleasant. Its five North Carolina cafes include two in Charlotte, and the company also has a presence in Houston, Alabama and Florida.
Flying Biscuit Cafe serves breakfast foods, including a Southern Style Benedict, Pancake Tacos and grits bowls all day, along with sandwiches, burgers and vegan offerings. It also features a catering service.
