Midwest City will soon have a new spot for breakfast.
The Big Biscuit plans to open a restaurant at 7199 SE 29th St. in Midwest City. The restaurant will be located in Town Center Plaza, in the former Panera Bread building.
“It’s great to have another breakfast place. It’s not good to have empty space and we are inching and inching closer to being full and we want to be full by the end of the year,” said Midwest City’s Economic Development Director Robert Coleman.
The Big Biscuit is a family-friendly restaurant franchise known for their home-style cooking and generous portions.
Construction for the restaurant began about five weeks ago. The restaurant is tentatively set to open at the end of July. The company is looking to hire 35 to 45 people for the location.
Their popular offerings include biscuits and gravy, omelets, pancakes, french toast and benedicts for breakfast. The lunch menu includes half-pound fresh beef burgers, 24-hour brined fried chicken, salads and more.
“Freshly prepared, quality comfort food with value, served with top-notch hospitality in a familiar, hometown-feeling environment is the foundation of our casual breakfast and lunch dining experience,” said The Big Biscuit President Chad Offerdahl. “Our menu reflects what guests crave — classic flavors with a creative twist, served in impossibly generous portions — and has been well-received wherever we open. Our goal is not to complicate things. We do what we do best, and everyone finds something they love at The Big Biscuit.”
The company is excited about expanding into the Midwest City community.
“Midwest City is a vibrant suburb of Oklahoma City offering residents a good quality of life, including outdoor recreation, good public schools, cultural sites and much more. It will be an honor to be part of the community,” said The Big Biscuit.
The addition of The Big Biscuit fills a void in the popular shopping center. Panera Bread relocated to another space in Town Center in late 2021.
Big Biscuit has locations in Edmond, Broken Arrow, Owasso and Tulsa, as well as in Missouri and Kansas.
