Another Broken Egg Café has promoted Tom Robertson to COO and elevated Brandy Blackwell to VP of marketing as part of the daytime dining brand’s push to become a nationwide chain.

Robertson, a five-year veteran of Another Broken Egg, moves up from the post of VP of operations. He joined the company in 2018 as a regional franchise consultant after serving in several positions at Applebee’s and Huddle House.

“We are just getting started here at Another Broken Egg Cafe, and I can hardly wait to see what we accomplish next,” Robertson said in a prepared statement.

Blackwell has just passed the six-month mark in her tenure with Another Broken Egg.  She came aboard in May in a marketing capacity after working for Jimmy John’s, Dunkin’, McAlister’s Deli and Tijuana Flats.

In her new role, she will be responsible for Another Broken Egg’s national and store-level marketing, as well as menu development.

Another Broken Egg serves breakfast, brunch and lunch at 82 franchised and company-run full-service restaurants.
