Biscuitville Receives “Heritage Award” from Triad Business Journal
Biscuitville – a breakfast and lunch fast-food company with roots in Alamance County – has received the Triad Business Journal’s Heritage Award. The award recognizes a family-owned business for its lasting impact in the Triad, with that impact extending beyond the economic realm and into community engagement and philanthropic activity. Biscuitville’s start can be traced back to 1966, when Maurice Jennings opened two bread and milk stores in Burlington. Jennings expanded that venture to open Pizzaville in 1967. Eight years later, Jennings “risk it with a biscuit” when he opened the first Biscuitville in Danville, Virginia. The company had its headquarters in Alamance County for many years before moving to Greensboro in 2007. Biscuitville currently has more than 60 fast food restaurants. The Heritage Award will be formally presented at a banquet August 25 and celebrated in a Triad Business Journal special publication September 3.
