                                        Which Came First?

The Egg & I was created in 1987 in Fort Collins, Colorado. From humble roots, it has grown from a single location to a multi-state franchise with national expansion opportunities. The simple combination of outstanding food and great associates has given The Egg & I Restaurants the right recipe for success.

Sprinkle in superior restaurant unit economics and a top-notch executive management team and the result is a turn-key restaurant ready to feed hungry friends and neighbors and deliver a unique business opportunity. Each day The Egg & I earns more accolades and fame for providing guests with a warm and friendly ‘home away from home.’ Proven recipes and delicious home-style cooking are why guests return and ‘Best of...’ awards dot the walls of our restaurants.


Welcome Home.

To us, each restaurant represents a slice of home. With delicious food, inviting surroundings and friendly associates, The Egg & I Restaurants provide more than a meal. Much more.

“The Egg & I is a concept that combines a great dining experience at a great value, with equally great unit economics. It’s a recipe that has kept our guests coming back for more, while generating an outstanding return on investment for our franchisees.”
– Bill Baumhauer, Chairman & C.E.O.

Does the Egg Have an Edge?

Years of experience have given us a competitive edge in the marketplace. Here are a few reasons why:

  • The simplicity of operating only two meal periods: breakfast and lunch.
  • Limited hours of operation provide managers and associates a better quality of life.
  • Breakfast simply costs less to make.
  • Lower food costs mean higher profit margins.
  • The Egg & I offers a lower initial investment than a typical casual dining restaurant, resulting in a high sales to investment ratio.
  • History is on your side.

The Egg & I Restaurant continues to demonstrate a strong history of success and has been providing excellent food and service for over 20 years. Its extensive senior executive experience with large national and international restaurant companies provides proven leadership. The full-service, limited hours, breakfast and lunch segment in which The Egg & I competes is under served, providing the opportunity for significant growth.

Guest Experience

“The Egg & I reminds me of all those great family meals I had around our kitchen table.”
– Diana F.
“There is nothing better than to go to The Egg & I every week for my ‘fix’ of comfort food. I love my Mom, but she never cooked like these guys do.”
– Jason M.
