SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Eggs Up Grill has opened its first restaurant in Alabama.   Its newest restaurant is located at 300 Hughes Road in Madison Commons Shopping Center in Madison.  This is the first Eggs Up Grill for Franchise Partners Alex and Kristen McLellan.

The family is thrilled to be a part of the community, serving great food and smiles from sunup to lunch.

“The Brand is about neighbors serving neighbors and being a home to the whole neighborhood. This community we’ve fallen in love with complements the Eggs Up Grill mission of great food, community service, family and hospitality,” said McLellan

Eggs Up Grill  is seeking both single and multi-unit franchisees to further expansion in Alabama.  The rapidly growing Brand known for its great-tasting, freshly prepared meals, friendly service and inviting atmosphere already has two additional restaurants  planned for the Huntsville market.

"We are extremely excited to be operating in the great state of Alabama, and look forward to future growth,” said Eggs Up Grill CEO Ricky Richardson. "The business friendly climate, booming growth, and thriving culture makes it a great move for our brand."
