Eggs Up Grill finds success in hot ‘better breakfast’ segment

The 50-unit chain is breaking sales records with a proven concept and some pandemic-era adaptations.

The newly public chain continues to innovate within its “daytime dining” framework, adding alcohol and developing a prototype designed to drive more top-line sales.

The lodging giant intends to roll a new hot buffet into 3,000 properties. The spread emphasizes quality, customization and sustainability.

The breakfast-and-lunch chain plans to sell shares at $17 to $20 and could get a valuation of more than $1 billion.

Consumers are once again eating breakfast away from home, and quick-service concepts are vying for their business with upgraded menus.

The latest episode of the “Buzzworthy Brands” podcast features H&H Bagels, which has been in business for nearly 50 years, and is now getting its operations and systems in place to begin franchising.

Consumers are seeking dining-out occasions that offer an engaging experience and enticing food and drink, and operators are updating brunch to deliver both.

The 423-unit chain has seen a quick recovery from the pandemic and would be the industry’s third offering of 2021.

The chain will introduce the Glazed Pull Apart Donut for a limited time in September. It’s the first LTO for its McCafé Bakery lineup.
