Rise actually opened in Coral Springs, FL before 2018/2019 and closed woth in the year because the location was too pricey.


That being said I was super sad they closed they have the most amazing biscuits and variety of donuts. And the hash puppies are something out of this world amazing. Glad they are reaching back into Florida finally
