Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, opened its newest restaurant in Myrtle Beach. This is the third Eggs Up Grill for local owners Buddy Lindsay and Don Rau, who like half of Eggs Up Grill franchisees own/operate more than one location or have development underway. This is the no. 56 for the brand, and it’s third opening of 2022, with another 15 on the way.
Rau says, “I have enjoyed many years of success with Eggs Up Grill. The values of Eggs Up Grill, along with our neighbors and business partners in Myrtle Beach, provide great opportunities for this area.”
Eggs Up Grill has been setting new restaurant-opening records for three years in a row, growing eight to 10 restaurants per year. Its 2022 outlook includes 20 new restaurants and expansion into three new states; the Brand will enter Alabama in the third quarter of 2022 and is in active discussions with multi-unit prospects in Texas and Mississippi. Eggs Up Grill opened 10 new restaurants in the last 12 months and signed five franchise agreements in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The Rau Family has lived in Myrtle Beach for 15 years. Don and Laura Rau have been married for 30 years and have two daughters who attend Clemson University. Rau has owned and operated restaurants throughout his career and joined Eggs Up Grill five years ago.
“We appreciate the many contributions by Don and his team to the Eggs Up Grill brand. It’s great to have his experience and support in Myrtle Beach leading the way,” says Ricky Richardson, chief executive officer of Eggs Up Grill. “Eggs Up Grill is proud to have nine thriving restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area, serving neighbors from sunup to lunch. “
