On Sunday, July 28, Eggs Up Grill in Mount Pleasant served their 100,000th egg to one very excited customer. Regular customer Billy Strickland was served the egg in front a capacity crowd at Eggs Up Grill, who applauded his luck at placing the winning egg order. Billy was dining at the restaurant with his wife Lynne, who was equally delighted by the honor.
“All Eggs Up Grill restaurants have a sign in their stores that tracks the number of eggs
that have been served,” explained co-owner Kaycie Lane. “We’ve been so surprised and happy to discover that our customers really keep track of that number and come in
regularly to see what the current number is. We were able to build a lot of customer
excitement in the weeks leading up to the presentation, with many customers coming in
daily to take their chance at being the 100,000th egg winner.”
As the winning customer, Billy received a $50 Eggs Up Grill gift card, a “This Place
Cracks Me Up” logo T-shirt, a coffee mug and a candy pail. “We also hard boiled a
special egg for the winner and printed on it “100,000th Egg” so they would have a cute
keepsake to show all their friends,” said Lane.
The celebration included a speech by co-owners Kaycie Lane and Jerry Romaine, who
thanked their customers for making the celebration possible. “We are very proud of the
fact that, even though we’ve been open for less than one year, we have gained so many
regular customers,” said Kaycie. “Many come in multiple times during the week and
some even insist on sitting at the same table every time. We have a lot of fun getting to
know our customers and their families and I think that’s a big part of our success. They
feel like family when they are here.”
Eggs Up Grill has locations in Mount Pleasant, Pawley’s Island, Surfside, Conway,
Myrtle Beach, Garden City and Anderson. The restaurants serve breakfast and lunch
daily in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere.
