SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly expanding breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, will open a new restaurant in Bristol, Va. this summer. Located at 180 Stateline Center in the Kroger Shopping Center, this is the second of five Eggs Up Grills for Franchise Partner Ken Bates and his family. He also owns the Eggs Up Grill in Johnson City, Tenn., and will open a location in Kingsport, Tenn. later this year.

Prior to Eggs Up Grill, he owned 24 Little Caesars restaurants across four states, including Tennessee, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia.
