Firm represents Flying Biscuit in its first Alabama location in Birmingham

ATLANTA, May 17, 2019 – Flying Biscuit Café, a restaurant chain serving Southern-inspired breakfast and comfort food, has chosen Ackerman Retail, a division of Ackerman & Co., as its exclusive representative for its expansion in Georgia and Alabama. The Atlanta-based restaurant chain has 19 locations across Georgia, North Carolina, Florida and Texas.

Ackerman Retail recently represented Flying Biscuit in its first Alabama location, in Birmingham, at the Shops at the Colonnade. The restaurant is scheduled to open this summer.

Executive Vice President Brian Lefkoff and Vice President Gigi Best will lead efforts to open new franchise locations ranging in size from 2,400 to 3,000 square feet.

“With the increasing popularity of the industry’s breakfast segment and Flying Biscuit’s strong brand recognition, the restaurant chain has an excellent opportunity for further growth in Georgia and Alabama,” said Brian Lefkoff.

Founded in Atlanta in 1993, Flying Biscuit started franchising in 2006. The chain’s popular menu items include biscuits and gravy, organic oatmeal pancakes, oven-fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese sandwiches, shrimp and grits, and chicken and waffles.
