Starkville’s Favorite ‘Biscuit Shop’ to Move to Northport in April
A well-loved bakery that has been selling handmade biscuits in Starkville, Mississippi since 2017 is closing operations there to move to Northport, its owner announced Monday.
The Biscuit Shop Company was founded in 2015 and was purchased two years later by Krista Olley, who is more commonly known as "the Biscuit Lady."
Olley said she has always loved baking biscuits, and decided to buy and run the shop after a short career as a respiratory tech and raising her daughter as a stay-at-home mom.
Since October 2017, Olley has sold more than 40 varieties of southern-style biscuits and rolls from the Starkville store and also shipped several kinds of frozen biscuits all over the US.
"We have original scratch-made Buttermilk all the way to Jalapeño Popper and Cookies and Cream Rolls," Olley said on the bakery's website. "The flavors to try are endless, and a MAJOR comfort food."
Olley announced Monday that The Biscuit Shop has grown steadily and that she will permanently close the Starkville store and move to Northport, where the growth can continue. She plans to open the new location in April.
Northport City Councilman Jeff Hogg, the co-chair of the city's retail recruitment committee, welcomed Olley to the area and said the bakery will open on McFarland Boulevard next to Northport's Chicken Salad Chick.
