Rise Southern Biscuits and Righteous Chicken aims to open at the Carytown Exchange development in the fall.

The restaurant, which emphasizes fried chicken and biscuits as well as coffee and donuts, has leased an 1,800-square-foot space on the shopping center’s Cary Street side. Its suite is between the Torchy’s Tacos and the AT&T store.
