    How We Stand Out

    Founded in 1997, Eggs Up Grill has been making guests smile for more than 20 years with our successful business model, simple operations, and strong returns. As we accelerate our growth in the rapidly expanding breakfast category, we are seeking single-location and multi-unit franchisees who share our passion for great food, friendly service, and community involvement. With an experienced team led by former TGI Friday’s President Ricky Richardson, we are on track to have more than 60 locations open by the end of 2021. Eggs Up Grill–home to the whole neighborhood, serving smiles from sunup through lunch.
