Upscale Brunch Franchise Ranked #302 On List of the 500 Largest United States Franchise Brands Among Other Accolades

Another Broken Egg Cafe Honored with Multiple Awards in 2022Another Broken Egg Cafe has added further validation to its reputation as a leading player in the breakfast and brunch franchise industry through a myriad of awards and recognitions so far in 2022.

Jumping 12 spots since last year’s ranking, the brunch concept was named #302 on the 2022 Franchise Times’ Top 500 list. This list is an annual ranking of the 500 largest U.S.-based franchise systems by global systemwide sales. The collection of systemwide sales data also provides useful insight into the franchise industry’s performance coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Every segment gained ground in 2021, with some getting back to or even surpassing pre-pandemic sales. In 2021 alone, Another Broken Egg Cafe’s system-wide sales grew by 74.1%, surpassing $140 million, and experienced 11.3% unit growth. With 82 locations across the United States, the company is currently on pace to exceed $160 million in systemwide sales for 2022.

“We’ve witnessed incredible growth this year at Another Broken Egg Cafe, so it’s only fitting that our proven franchise opportunity has been recognized by highly regarded publications and rankings such as these,” said Paul Macaluso, President and CEO of Another Broken Egg Cafe. “Our team has been focused on ensuring the success of the brand, especially during these past few years. We look forward to continuing to provide high-quality food and service to our guests and to growing with exceptional franchise partners across the nation.”

In addition, Another Broken Egg Cafe was recently named by Entrepreneur as a “Top Food Franchise.” The list highlighted the best food-based franchises for entrepreneurs searching for new business opportunities.

Furthermore, Another Broken Egg Cafe has been recognized by Franchise Business Review with three awards so far in 2022. Franchise Business Review is a market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and employee engagement to provide rankings and awards for companies based on franchisee satisfaction and performance.

The brand recently received the following recognitions:

  • Top 200 Franchises: The ranking highlights the best franchise opportunities based on owner satisfaction.
  • Franchise Rock Star: Awarded to franchisees who are exceptional examples of achieving success within the franchise model.
  • Top Recession-Proof Franchise: Awarded to companies that have outstanding satisfaction among their franchise owners and demonstrate strong potential to outperform their competitors during challenging economic times.

Not only is the brand an award winner, but the concept’s leadership team is also widely recognized for their accomplishments. In September, Another Broken Egg Cafe’s operations manager, Amanda Johnson, was placed on FSR Magazine’s list of “40 Restaurant Stars on the Rise.” Johnson won this award for being a “management maven” who goes above and beyond to help the brand succeed, including helping to more than double the brand’s footprint and roll out a digital guest waitlist program. Moreover, earlier this year, Macaluso was announced as one of 11 members of a new NextGen Casual Council with FSR. This group of restaurant leaders will work to drive conversation and progress for full-service dining.

With a menu that is loaded with fresh ingredients, creative recipes and seasonal features, Another Broken Egg creates an indulgent brunch experience for its guests. The cafes offer a warm, yet lively and modernized environment where food and beverages, including a full bar, come together to create a highly attractive environment.
