just slightly biased toward the lunch side,” he said. “A lot of people who have breakfast before going to work or breakfast meetings are usually going to a restaurant that’s on their way to work. Because we’re tucked into [The Centre at Preston Ridge] shopping center, it’s more of like a local thing, where people who are in the area are more familiar with it.” After the coronavirus pandemic took hold in March, Eamon Kalafchi said, Biscuit switched to only o # er curbside pickup for customers and began working with third-party delivery services, such as Grubhub and DoorDash.
