Rise in North Raleigh
If you are a donut lover like me you probably already knew that Rise is planning to open several locations across the Triangle over the next year. Their new North Raleigh location is set to open this Saturday, November 14th at 7am. In case you didn’t know, the North Raleigh shop is located in the Sutton Square Shopping Center at the intersection of Falls of Neuse & Spring Forest Road (the one with a Fresh Market). They will be open daily from 7am to 2pm.

The great thing about Rise is that they are well known for both their daily rotating donut menu AND creative breakfast biscuits. So even if you don’t like donuts there are great breakfast options for you to try. They also feature locally roasted coffee from Bean Traders in Durham. Chances are this location will be busy on weekend mornings much like the original so I would suggest checking them out on a weekday to avoid the crowd. Either way, I’m glad to see this new addition to North Raleigh and will be visiting very soon!

Rise Biscuits & Donuts is expanding to all corners of the Triangle. The first Rise location opened in Durham’s Renaissance Village just behind Southpoint mall back in 2012. Earlier this year they announced plans to franchise which has led to recent news of plans for additional locations throughout the area. As it stands there are currently plans for five additional shops to open over the next year with rumors of even more locations coming soon.
The newest Rise will open on August 22nd in Morrisville at the Park West Village Shopping Center . This will be followed by locations in Raleigh’s Cameron Village and North Raleigh’s Sutton Square later this fall. On Monday local blogger Carpe Durham broke the news on twitter that Rise would also take over the DaisyCakes space on Foster Street adding it’s first shop to downtown Durham. I’ve also heard news via the Triangle Business Journal that there are plans for a location on Main Street in downtown Carrboro.
Rise is popular for both their rotating donut menu and creative breakfast biscuits. They also feature locally roasted coffee from Bean Traders. I have been particularly impressed with their efforts to offer “trace of gluten” donuts at least once a week for customers trying to avoid gluten. As a donut fan I will continue to keep my eye on Rise and where they plan to open shop next. For now you can follow the newest locations on twitter and facebook (links below) for regular updates on their progress and grand opening dates.
