The Shumacher Group, Inc. has sold the two original Flying Biscuit Cafes in a blockbuster transaction. This was the sale of two very profitable units including Candler Park on McLendon Avenue that started it all. The other unit was 1001 Piedmont at 12th in Midtown at the gates of Piedmont Park. The Shumacher Group, Inc. and Steve Josovitz represented the Seller, Raving Brands in this transaction as well securing the Buyer thru its marketing efforts.

The Flying Biscuit Cafe is a fun and funky restaurant known nationwide for serving up huge portions of its Southern style comfort food. Famous for breakfast, it’s also a great value for lunch and dinner…and you always get a huge, fluffy flying biscuit!

Waitress-turned restaurateur, Delia Champion, has proved that a restaurant built on biscuits can fly! With the help of some friends, like Indigo Girl Emily Saliers, The Flying Biscuit Cafe, now with two Atlanta locations, opened in November of 1993. One of the true gourmet bargains in the city serving an eclectic menu that Delia terms healthy comfort food, the Biscuit serves three meals a day, including breakfast all day. Delia says the secret ingredient to keeping the flying biscuit a success is cooking with love. Make every decision from a place of love, and it will filter down from the employees to the customers.

The original location, in the heart of historic Candler Park, has tripled in size since opening. The decor, like the food, is creative and comfortable. Located next door is the Flying Biscuit Bakery, where they hand make over 3000 thick, fluffy, and light as a feather biscuits in a weekend.

In the heart of midtown, the hip decor and brilliant ambiance of the Midtown Flying Biscuit resonates true to the neighborhood in-town energy. Located near historic Piedmont Park, the menu reflects the same defined alternative, healthy items as the Candler Park location.

The Flying Biscuit has multiple Atlanta locations.
