Centennial, CO-based The Egg & I Restaurants announces the opening of its 62nd restaurant on Monday, October 1st.  The restaurant opens at 6:00 a.m., and is located at 14005 North US HWY 183, Ste. 500 at the NE Corner of 183 and Lakeline in the Super Target Shopping Center.

On September 30th, the restaurant will donate 100% of all proceeds from its private, pre-opening training day to The American Widow Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for military widows grieving the loss of a spouse in the armed forces. “Every donation made to the AWP allows a military widow to receive the emotional support needed to not only carry on her Hero’s legacy, but also create her own. We are so honored to have the support of The Egg & I of Austin-Walden Park,” said Tabbatha Lancaster, Volunteer Coordinator for The American Widow Project.

“We are all very excited about this event to honor The American Widow Project and about our new restaurant opening. The Austin-Walden Park community has already welcomed us with open arms and we can’t wait to become more involved in our new community and make new friends,” said Kristle Thacker, General Manager of the new The Egg & I Restaurant. “We are also very pleased our restaurant is creating 35 new jobs in Austin.”

“The opening of our 62nd location is a significant accomplishment for all of us at The Egg & I Restaurants. I want to thank our entire team for their dedication and tireless efforts to ensure we deliver an exceptional guest experience every day in every restaurant,” commented Bill Baumhauer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of E&I Holdings, Inc., parent company of The Egg & I Restaurants.  “We are excited to be opening new restaurants and bringing our award-winning breakfast and lunch entrees to the Austin community.”
