A popular Soda City Market vendor is expanding its business to open up a brick-and-mortar shop.

Rambo’s Fat Cat Biscuits plans to open its first restaurant on North Main Street in Columbia next month, the business announced on social media.

Started as a mobile food joint by husband and wife team Renee and Todd Adams, Rambo’s Fat Cat Biscuits has built a following of fans at the weekly Soda City Market on Saturday mornings on Main Street.

Rambo’s is known for, naturally, its hefty biscuits, filled with everything from thick-cut sausage patties and pimento cheese to fried chicken to brie and fig jam.

It’ll open in a newly built space at the corner of North Main and Confederate Avenue, across the street from Noma Bistro by Al Amir. A soon-to-open barber shop, J. Brown Studio, will share the building with Rambo’s. They’re flanked by the Cottontown, Elmwood Park and Earlewood neighborhoods.

They join the Noma District, a burgeoning small business corridor, with the likes of Vino Garage, The War Mouth, A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen, Il Focolare Pizzeria, Indah and Curiosity coffee shops and more. Over the past several years, small businesses have flocked to the up-and-coming North Main area, where rents are cheaper than downtown and customers spill out from the diverse surrounding neighborhoods.
