Workshop “Understanding the 6 Components of Your Business with the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS)”
About Queen City Audio, Video & Appliances:
Panel – “Financing Growth, Strategic Options for Liquidity and How Private Businesses Make Trade-Offs”
“Since 1966, we’ve been baking our scratch-made Biscuitville biscuits and serving up our classic Southern breakfast with ingredients sourced from local farms and family-owned partners.
In 1966 Maurice Jennings literally “Bets the farm on the biscuit” by opening two Mountainbrook Fresh Bread & Milk stores in Burlington, NC.
By 1967 he decided to bake his made-from-scratch biscuits with a jelly bar for guests to add their favorite jams and jellies. Soon, lines are out the front door. In 1975 the first Biscuitville opens in Danville, VA and in three years it grows to 8 restaurants. This grows to 25 stores by 1982.
Burney Jennings becomes president and CEO in 1996, overseeing 42 locations and employing over 750 people. In 2007 Biscuitville celebrates 50 stores and moves our headquarters to Greensboro, NC.
In 2022 there are 69 locations and we celebrate over 55 years of spreading the biscuit love!”
