Mason Dixie Biscuit Company is no longer operating in residents at EatsPlace, the new culinary incubator in Parkville. From the group's Facebook page:

Hello FB Fam! As of today, we will be refocusing our business on our brick and mortar - opening early 2015 - and moving on from EatsPlace! It's been a crazy couple of weeks, but with all the amazing rewards from Mess Hall Launch Pad, we are ramping up for our own full-time location! In the meantime, check us out on Twitter (@masondixiedc) and here to see where we will be on the weekends and find us at The Emporiyum selling retail frozen biscuits and spreads in a few weeks! See you at a weekend pop up soon friends!

Mason Dixie was one of the opening chefs in residence at the incubator, along with DC Born & Raised. Eater has reached out to EatsPlace for any information about the exit, and who might replace them.

Update: Here's an email response from EatsPlace's Katy Chang: "We're thankful that Mason Dixie was one of the first to have a residency at EatsPlace, and I'm proud of their brick and mortar shop opening so soon! Pop ups are designed to move on, but I totally understand the heartbreak when they close. Hopefully that's partially offset knowing that they're successfully moving on to a permanent space and that allows opportunities for new food entrepreneurs. And part of the fun is to see who is popping up next!"

No word yet on who the next guest chef will be.
