Biscuitville announces winners of the
“Brand Your Biscuit!” competition
"Biscuitville (www.biscuitville.com), a local-favorite, family-owned restaurant known for its southern-style breakfasts, kicked off Greensboro Collegiate Biscuitville Week with the “Brand Your Biscuit!” competition on Saturday, April 5. Thirty-nine teams from six Triad colleges and universities entered the competition that challenged students to come up with an innovative product idea for Biscuitville’s new FRESH SOUTHERN menu. This year, three teams from Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) swept the competition, taking first, second and third place.
1st Place: GTCC students Pamela Oliver and Rebecca Follweiler won $1,000 with the Pretty in Pink Biscuit – a fresh and creative combination of strawberries baked into a scratch-made biscuit and topped with sweetened strawberry cream cheese frosting.
2nd Place: GTCC students Sharee Hankins, Holly Causey, Christine Summer and Dee Sicola won $500 with their Sweet Potato & Country Ham Biscuit – an innovative recipe of sweet potato puree made with cinnamon, honey and melted butter, and served with Biscuitville’s locally-sourced country ham and signature biscuit.
3rd Place: GTCC students Tammy Snow and Sheree Ingram won $250 with the Gardenville Salad with Buttermilk Biscuit Crouton – a simplistic salad combination of lettuce, tomato, dill pickle chips, and shredded American cheese topped with a unique, scratch-made buttermilk biscuit crouton and homemade dressing using Biscuitville’s bacon and jelly.
The competition was so fierce this year that the judges also chose two honorable mentions: Kyriah Shannon from Bennett College for her Sausage & Cranberry Couscous Biscuit and Jeffrey Jackman, Matt Troy, Kyle Gatti and Chris Cox from Greensboro College for their Jenning's Tea – a combination of tea and lemonade. Photos of all the winning products are available upon request.
Biscuitville Week will culminate Saturday, April 12 with the Campus Scramble 5K relay race, scheduled for 3 p.m. in Center City Park. As the first and only urban obstacle race of its kind in North Carolina, participants will navigate over, under and around 16 challenging obstacles such as fire, cars, and walls.
Registration for the Campus Scramble is still open and costs $15 for students or $27 for non-students. Race day registration is also available. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top racers and collegiate groups, and proceeds will benefit The Interactive Resource Center, an innovative day resource establishment for people experiencing homelessness in Guilford County.
