Eggs Up Grill is proving the saying, “the early bird gets the worm” to be true.  


FSR Magazine recently recognized Eggs Up Grill as one of seven emerging breakfast chains that are rising to the top. With beloved menu items, a community appeal that is, “home to the whole neighborhood,”  FSR applauds Eggs Up Grill for its growth strategy and bright-and-cozy dining concept.

In 2018 alone, Eggs Up Grill had a 26.9% growth and currently has 36 locations across 11 states. The breakfast chain “has been aggressively adding locations, with 12 new units and two new markets on the docket for 2019 and nine new stores already confirmed for 2020,” according to FSR. Eggs Up Grill CEO Ricky Richardson gives kudos to the franchisees for contributing to the brand’s impressive growth.

If Eggs Up Grill continues down this road of success, the breakfast brand is on track to hit the 100-location mark by mid-2022
