Rise Biscuits Donuts, Durham, NC’s award-winning concept featuring both sweet and savory breakfast and lunch options, will open Saturday, July 1 on Broughton Street in Downtown Savannah.
To celebrate its grand opening, Rise Downtown Savannah will be donating 10% of opening day sales to the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society, a family support group that benefits people with Down Syndrome and their families through local leadership, outreach, education and advocacy. Split, the Savannah Bananas mascot, will be in attendance and all who wear mismatched socks (a symbol of awareness for Down Syndrome) to Rise on opening day will be entered to win two free tickets with food and drink to a Bananas game. Rise Downtown Savannah is a proud sponsor of the Savannah Bananas this season.
Rise Downtown Savannah is also offering its Facebook followers the opportunity to win free biscuits and donuts in a special preview event on Friday, June 30th at the store. Simply like and follow Rise Downtown Savannah on Facebook ( https:// www.facebook. com/RiseSavannahDowntown) for announcements on how to enter. “We’re thrilled to be bringing Rise to Savannah and can’t wait for folks to taste the best dang biscuits and donuts,” says Shane Johnson who, with his partner Cristol Johnson, will own the franchise. “Community building is at the heart of Rise’s mission and we’re proud to be giving back to Savannah by raising money for the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society.”
