Eggs Up Grill a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, opened its newest restaurant in Myrtle Beach today. This is the third Eggs Up Grill for local owners Buddy Lindsay and Don Rau, who like half of Eggs Up Grill franchisees, own/operate more than one location or have development underway. This is no. 56 for the franchise, the third opening of 2022, with another 15 on the way.
Rau says, “I have enjoyed many years of success with Eggs Up Grill. The values of Eggs Up Grill, along with our neighbors and business partners in Myrtle Beach, provide great opportunities for this area.”
Rau has owned and operated restaurants throughout his career and joined Eggs Up Grill five years ago.
“We appreciate the many contributions by Don and his team to the Eggs Up Grill brand. It’s great to have his experience and support in Myrtle Beach leading the way,” said Ricky Richardson, chief executive officer of Eggs Up Grill. “Eggs Up Grill is proud to have nine thriving restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area, serving neighbors from sunup to lunch. “
The Brand continues expansion across the Southeast, opening its first location in Tennessee in February, opening in Alabama in July, and finalizing plans to enter Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas in early 2023.
