Eggs Up Grill Signs Deal for Mississippi
February 07, 2023 // Franchising.com // SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Eggs Up Grill is moving into the state of Mississippi in 2023. Former Captain D’s Area Manager Richard Harris, along with his partners Bill and Larry Johnson, inked a deal for one location in Meridian, Miss. with a target opening date of this summer.
“It’s always exciting to enter into a new state, as time after time, new guests become familiar faces and longtime fans of our Brand,” said Ricky Richardson, CEO of Eggs Up Grill. “We couldn’t be happier to have Richard’s rich industry experience behind our first restaurant in Mississippi, as we know he is devoted to making our guests smile.”
Richard worked for Captain D’s for 40 years, beginning as a cook, and working his way up to an area supervisor of 12 locations in Atlanta, Ga. Most recently, he was the hometown area partner for a Captain D’s franchise in Meridian, Miss. He met his partners, the Johnson brothers, when they were customers at his restaurant; the two have been business owners in Meridian for the last 60 years, including real estate and car dealerships.
"I was intrigued by the décor and the concept, but when I finally dined at an Eggs Up Grill, I was hooked,” said Harris. “It’s exactly what I expected - I felt like I was eating breakfast on vacation with the colors and the openness, not to mention eliminating the night shift was very attractive to me,” said Harris.
Eggs Up Grill offers seasonal items and its full menu for dine-in or order online for takeout or delivery. Menu categories include omelets and benedicts prepared with fresh, hand-cracked eggs, pancakes, waffles and breakfast sandwiches and a selection of mimosas. Lunch choices include juicy burgers, tasty sandwiches, melts, salads and bowls. The menu also offers gluten-friendly options and a kids’ menu. The full menu is available open to close.
