Additionally, in the first quarter, the brand opened units in Orlando, Florida; Cincinnati, Ohio; Westlake, Ohio and Bossier City, Louisiana and has plans to debut up to 14 more cafes this year.
In addition to the company’s development success and growth, Another Broken Egg Cafe just experienced one of its best sales quarters since inception earning systemwide same-store sales numbers nearly 7 percent higher than the first quarter of 2019. The brand’s momentum accelerated in March 2021 with systemwide same-store sales 12.5 percent greater than March 2019. Another Broken Egg Cafe’s pivot toward off-premise combined with an innovative food and beverage program helped the brand navigate pandemic complexities, while positioning it for sustained success.
“It’s been truly rewarding to lead our brand to new heights despite a variety of pandemic-related obstacles,” says Paul Macaluso, president & CEO of Another Broken Egg Cafe. “Our recent success is a testament to our entire team at Another Broken Egg Cafe and especially our franchisees. They’ve worked extremely hard to ensure their restaurants rebounded quickly and we can’t wait to see what everyone accomplishes in the second quarter and beyond.”
Full-service breakfast, brunch and lunch has become one of the fastest-growing segments in the foodservice industry and Another Broken Egg Cafe’s growing AUV’s, strong ROI, creative menu and cocktail innovation makes it an attractive investment opportunity for foodservice franchisees. A variety of experienced multi-unit operators inked development agreements with Another Broken Egg Cafe in the first quarter including former franchisees of IHOP and current franchisees of Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
“Our brand is attracting several highly-qualified multi-unit prospects with decades of restaurant industry experience,” says Jeff Sturgis, Chief Development Officer of Another Broken Egg Cafe. “We’re excited about the growth we’ve already achieved, but know the future is even brighter. Our brand is looking forward to signing more development agreements in the coming weeks and months.”
The company’s recent growth has even earned recognition from reputable industry media outlets. Another Broken Egg Cafe was named 2020 Breakout Brand of the Year by FSR magazine.
Another Broken Egg Cafe will continue expanding and is looking to grow throughout the Southeast, Midwest and Texas to complement its existing footprint of cafes in those areas. With plans to reach 300 units open and in development by 2023, Another Broken Egg Cafe is aggressively seeking single- and multi-unit operators to drive growth.
