Another Broken Egg is opening two locations in the nation that will host events to fundraise for local nonprofits.
In Miamisburg, Ohio, Another Broken Egg Cafe (ABEC) will officially open Monday, Nov. 10, 2014 in Austin Landing at 3450 Rigby Rd. The 3,457-square-foot restaurant will seat 120 inside and another 36 on a patio, which overlooks Austin Landings' expansive outdoor park in this new 142-acre development.
"The Austin Landing location is a perfect market for our first Another Broken Egg Cafe due to its proximity to the major thoroughfare and the amenities provided by Austin Landing," says Mike Craddick, franchisee and area developer Mike of Centerville. "The restaurant opening also creates 25 to 35 new jobs."
Prior to the grand opening, there will be three private Friends & Family days to benefit a worthy local cause, United Rehabilitation Services of Dayton. The Friends & Family dates are Nov. 6, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Nov. 7, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Nov. 8, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
United Rehabilitation Services' (URS) mission is to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities or other special needs. URS was originally founded in 1956 as the Dayton Chapter of United Cerebral Palsy and is now providing services every day to more than 400 children and adults with Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Autism, Alzheimer's, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, and many other disabilities.
ABEC mug collectors will also look forward to finding the new Austin Landing motif on the hand-thrown stoneware used for coffee service and hot beverages. Each ABEC location has its own distinctive symbol on the American made design, which is produced in various colors year round.
