Centennial, CO-based The Egg & I Restaurants announces the opening of its second location in Maine on Monday, March 25th. The restaurant opens at 6:00 a.m., and is located at 139 Riverside Street (I-95 Exit 48).
On March 24th, the restaurant will donate 100% of all proceeds from its private, pre-opening training day to Camp Sunshine.

Since Camp Sunshine’s inception, over 8,000 families have been able to regroup, reenergize, and restore hope for the future. “We are excited to partner with The Egg & I Restaurant and are grateful for their continued support,” says Michael Smith, Director of Special Events for Camp Sunshine.
“We are all very excited about this event to support Camp Sunshine and about our new restaurant opening. The Portland 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 Paul Foss, General Manager of the new The Egg & I Restaurant. “We are also very pleased our restaurant is creating 30 new jobs in Portland.”
“The opening of our 2nd unit in Maine 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 a new restaurant bringing our award-winning breakfast and lunch entrees to the Portland community.”
