Holler & Dash // Biscuit House Comes to Ttown

If you haven’t experienced a good biscuit, then you haven’t truly lived. At least, that’s what us folks in the South believe. If you’ve found yourself in the biscuit predicament, have no fear because Holler & Dash Biscuit House is about to be here. Debuting mid-July, the originally Homewood-based restaurant is expanding its wings to the strip in Tuscaloosa. According to Chief Operating Officer Mike Chissler, Tuscaloosa was the natural next spot for this southern based brand.

“We love all that Tuscaloosa has to offer as a community with rich tradition and a local-feel. We are really interested in becoming part of the community and contributing as a local business to help Tuscaloosa thrive,” says Chissler. Opening in the previous Coldstone Creamery location, Holler & Dash have good expectation that it will get a good local following as well as huge business on gamedays due to the strip location. “Gamedays are going to be crazy and we can’t wait to be in the mix of all of it,” says Chissler.

Chef Brandon Frohne, Director of Culinary for H & D, is no stranger to the foodie scene. As a fifth generation chef and winner of the 2015 Chef of the Year Award by the Tennessee Hospitality and Tourism Association, H & D is not skimping on the food quality. “Our biscuits are certainly the star of the show but we definitely believe in seasonality as well. Our plan is to have a majority of our items consistently on the menu, but we’re also looking forward to having some items that reflect what’s in season,” says Frohne.

Both Frohne and Chissler agree that despite how fantastic the food menu is, the impressive beverage menu will keep folks coming in day in and day out.  “Our house-made craft sodas with flavors like huckleberry peach and strawberry lemongrass will definitely make a difference. Our selection of beer, wine, and mimosas are sure to be next level as well. And we haven’t even mentioned the coffee yet!” says Chissler. Coffee vendors for Holler & Dash include Collectivo Coffee out of Wisconsin and Dark Matter Coffee out of Chicago. Aside from the regular hot brew, patrons can look forward to a delicious cold and nitro brew coffee as part of their morning or afternoon routine.

When asked what other things will set the biscuit house apart from other eateries in Tuscaloosa, both Chissler and Frohne agree that it would be their staff. According to Chissler, every staff member has been hired based on their personality. “We want our staff to have fun with their customers and really let their personalities come out,” says Chissler. Though the expected opening date is Tuesday, July 12th, customers join in early on the fun with an upcoming pre-launch Biscuit Bash happening on Saturday July 9th from 12pm-2pm. The pre-launch party will feature an opportunity to observe the biscuit making process, play tailgate games, and win a variety of prizes. The first 200 guests will receive a free biscuit with toppings.

Holler & Dash is located at 1130 University Boulevard next to GNC on The Strip.  Tweet us @ThePlanetWeekly and let us know where you are eating!
