SILER CITY — Biscuitville is bringing its “Fresh Southern” approach to food to Siler City, aiming for a summer opening.

“Siler City has always been a place we saw Biscuitville emerging,” Biscuitville’s Marketing Manager Alon Vanterpool said. “We are very excited to finally see this development come to life. Because of Siler City’s potential for high growth and steady traffic flow, it is an ideal area for one of our next locations.”

The proposed restaurant will be located at 1711 East 11th St. (U.S. Hwy. 64) next to McDonald’s in the former Community One bank site and will represent an investment of more than $1 million by the privately-held company for construction and equipment. The company hopes to hire up to 40 employees at the location.

The town received the first correspondence about the project last January, according to Siler City Planning Director Jack Meadows. Over the past year, Biscuitville has sent plans and updates which have been reviewed by Siler City’s Technical Review Committee, which includes representatives from utilities, engineers, the N.C. Dept. of Transportation, Emergency Services, and the planning and inspections department.

Biscuitville started as a bread and milk store in Burlington in 1966, but opened its first Biscuitville store, which focused on biscuits and Southern food, in 1975. In its 50 years, the company has expanded to more than 50 locations, sourcing its food from local sources like flour from Henderson and eggs from Monroe.

In Siler City, the development process is nearly complete with Vanterpool saying that he hopes construction will start within the next few months, with the official opening being sometime mid-to-late summer. The site plan is close to final approval, followed by the company obtaining zoning and building permits for demolition and construction. Since the property is already zoned for this type of development, the project management team will only need to request permits from a zoning administrator and won’t require additional approval from either the town’s planning board or board of commissioners.

Chatham EDC President Alyssa Byrd notes that increasing daily traffic, highway access and more business activity in Siler City “make the town an attractive destination for retail and food service industries.”

Byrd also praised Biscuitville’s “focus on sourcing from local, family-owned vendors.” Biscuitville currently has a partnership with Cackalacky, which is based in Pittsboro and sources its flour from Henderson, according to Byrd.

“Biscuitville Fresh Southern is a family-owned company that utilizes other local and family-owned partners to source our ingredients,” Vanderpool said. “We serve authentic Southern food made fresh every day and we look forward to serving our guest in Siler City. Not only does Biscuitville provide guest with another option, it also brings with it the opportunity of providing additional jobs to the area.”
