Eggs Up Grill has named Mira Stsiapanau vice president of operations and training. In her role, Mira will lead Eggs Up Grill’s field support team, the Brand’s training function and its flagship restaurant in Spartanburg, S.C. The new appointment comes as Eggs Up Grill continues to build out its best-in-class franchise support capabilities during a record-breaking year for the business. Eggs Up Grill is on track to open more than 30 new locations through year-end 2024 and has a development pipeline of 150 additional restaurants committed to open.
“The strength of our Brand is built through the magnetic attraction each restaurant generates with team members and guests in every neighborhood we call home,” said Ricky Richardson, CEO of Eggs Up Grill. “From our great-tasting food and drinks, our compelling everyday value and our “eggstraordinarily” friendly service, we obsess around ensuring every restaurant upholds Eggs Up Grill’s well-earned, one-of-a-kind reputation.
“To deliver these experiences throughout our growing system, we’re passionate about providing every franchise owner the training, support systems and resources needed to help enable their continued success. With Mira’s extensive experience in operations and training, she will be a key leader in enabling our ongoing growth,” he added.
Stsiapanau joins Eggs Up Grill from Denny’s where she spent six years as a senior district manager successfully leading a network of company-operated locations. She began her restaurant career as a regional training manager in the Popeyes system, and over her years in the industry has established a compelling track record of accomplishments in developing teams, a leadership pipeline and propelling business results.
“I’m very excited to join this established and rapidly expanding brand, continuing the ongoing improvements to its top notch-operations and training programs. It’s energizing to have a front-row seat to the big growth opportunities that are ahead,” said Stsiapanau.
