Greensboro, NC-- And the winner of this year's Biscuitville Challenge is...a team of students from Greensboro College.
The announcement was made Friday at the UNC-Greensboro/N.C. A&T State University Joint School of Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering.
The master creation that put the students in the winners circle: A buffalo chicken biscuit. Because of that biscuit, students walked away as winners of the 2012 Biscuitville Product Development Challenge.
The buffalo-chicken biscuit creation beat out 20 other entries from the seven colleges and universities in the restaurant chain's Greensboro home market.
According to a news release from the school, the Buffalo Chicken Biscuit was created by Albert Hovhannisyan, a senior biology and psychology major from Yerevan, Armenia, and Davit Avagyan, a senior Business Administration and Economics major with concentrations in finance and management from Gaithersburg, Md.
When can you get one of those Buffalo Chicken Biscuits and other benefits of winning? They will be sold at area Biscuitville restaurants. The winners also will have breakfast with Burney Jennings, president of Biscuitville, and win $5,000 for Greensboro College. The winning biscuit also will be promoted on two Fairway Outdoor Advertising billboards on heavily traveled Wendover and Battleground avenues.

Greensboro College President Lawrence D. Czarda, Ph.D., said the prize money likely will go toward ongoing information-technology, Web and marketing upgrades. Unrelated to the Biscuitville contest, Hovhannisyan and Avagyan also have designed a mobile app for the college that is being considered for use.
The Brand Your Biscuit contest was part of the Greensboro Collegiate Biscuitville Bowl, a week-long series of events for the Greensboro collegiate community.
The Biscuitville Bowl is sponsored by Biscuitville, Opportunity Greensboro, SynerG, a networking organization for young professionals in the city, and other sponsors. Its goal is to celebrate the city's entrepreneurial community, its seven colleges and universities and its 50,000 college students.
