It looks like a popular breakfast spot with locations in Bentonville and Springdale will soon open a Fayetteville location.

According to Washington County property records, a company registered to Buttered Biscuit owner Sam Russell has purchased the former Pizza Hut location on College Avenue, and health department records indicate the restaurant will soon be moving into the space.

The Russell’s purchased the property for $790,000 on March 24 of this year from SBW Capital Partners.

Buttered Biscuit got its start on Moberly Lane in Bentonville, and opened a second location in Bentonville along with a Springdale location in 2019.

The menu focuses on traditional breakfast items like pancakes, egg dishes, sandwiches, and signature dishes like chicken waffles, acai bowls, and other items.

Owner Anna Russell said it has been a longtime goal of theirs to open a Fayetteville location.

“We wanted our second restaurant to be in Fayetteville, but that isn’t the way things turned out,” she said. “We are so excited to finally be opening in Fayetteville, though.”

Russell said the building will require an extensive remodel.

“We are going to take it down to the studs, and we’ll move some walls around,” she said.

If all goes well, Russell said she hopes to be up and running with the new location by this fall.
