Bird Bird Biscuit, the new Cherrywood biscuit sandwich restaurant, has been doing brisk business since opening on Thursday, June 28. There’s often a line out the door, and the restaurant recently celebrated its first day of making it through a day of business without selling out.

“We knew people loved biscuits,” co-owner Ryan McElroy told Eater, “but — oh my God — do they love biscuits!”

In fact, the biscuit shop was so slammed, it had to shut down over the Fourth of July holiday (July 2-4) to recalibrate production capacity. McElroy, who also owns Thunderbird Coffee, said that the key to keeping up with demand is dedication and “sleeping less.”

He continued, “We refuse to do anything to lessen our biscuit quality, and will do everything possible to make sure that each and every biscuit lives up to its potential.” Chef and co-owner Brian Batch agreed.

To get an idea of just how many biscuits Bird Bird is producing, here’s a look at Bird Bird Biscuit by the numbers, in the first eight days of service (that means June 28 to July 8, excluding the temporary shutter):

  • Biscuits sold: 3,963
  • Most popular biscuit sandwich: Bird Bird Bacon (crispy bacon, egg, cheddar cheese, and bacon-infused chipotle mayonnaise)
  • Number of Bird Bird Bacons sold: 1,623
  • Pounds of butter used: 995
  • Slices of cheese: 2,876
  • Gallons of orange juice: 89
