Fourth Charlotte-Area Eggs Up Grill Now Open

Popular breakfast, brunch and lunch spot now operates four restaurants in Charlotte area

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, began serving the most important meal of the day at 6 a.m. today in Cornelius. Located at 19732 One Norman Blvd. in Turnberry Place, the restaurant is owned by husband-and-wife team Chris and Sofia Mendoza and their business partner Alfonso Segura. This is the fourth Eggs Up Grill restaurant to open in the Charlotte market.

Chris Mendoza began his restaurant career with Yum Brands, having spent 14 years under the Taco Bell umbrella. He credits the organization and several of his mentors with teaching him the importance of gratitude and giving back. He also says Eggs Up Grill is a golden opportunity for his family. The couple plan to give back in many ways but look forward to supporting local elementary schools including a new partnership with Lake Norman Elementary.

“We didn’t just want to own a business, but rather we wanted to do something that is meaningful,” said Chris Mendoza. “We invite all of our neighbors to join us at our new restaurant for the best breakfast, brunch and lunch in town, where it will be all about the community.”

With indoor seating for 94, plus an outdoor patio for 32, the 2,500 square-foot restaurant is designed to make guests feel at home in a light, bright and cheerful atmosphere.  The Cornelius restaurant serves guests seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with dine-in, online ordering, takeout and delivery options available.

Eggs Up Grill caters events, big or small, with a menu featuring breakfast favorites like eggs, grits, home fries, biscuits and gravy and muffins. Salads and sandwiches are available for catered lunch.

With locations across the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and soon entering Texas and Mississippi, Eggs Up Grill offers a unique experience for guests and franchise partners alike. Its great tasting food and drinks, uniquely friendly service and everyday affordability make Eggs Up Grill a number one choice for guests.  The single daypart operation, appealing investment economics and top-quality franchisor support are highly attractive to franchisees.
