Student-centric breakfast eatery Eggfast is on the move, but it’s not going far. The restaurant is planning to relocate this fall from 24 East 12th Avenue, around the corner to a High Street location within the South Campus Gateway.
“Our lease expired and we were in a month-to-month situation in our location on 12th Avenue,” said Eggfast Founder & Chief Executive Officer Pete Nowak. “That spot was always a challenge due to the lack of parking and visibility, so after three years it was time to make a move to a better location.”
The restaurant will retain the same concept: a quick-service breakfast offered 24/7 by way of dine-in, carry-out, catering and home delivery options. The retail environment will undergo a makeover, and Nowak anticipates a few menu modifications that will broaden the restaurant’s appeal to non-students.
“We’ll continue to primarily focus on the OSU campus area, including the OSU Hospital and surrounding neighborhoods,” he explained. “We feel that the improvements will increase the appeal of the concept outside of traditional university areas.”
Eggfast proudly touts that 80% of their menu is made in-house from fresh ingredients, including their casseroles, salsas, pancakes and other sauces. The new Eggast will see the addition of locally sourced bagels and pastries and a rotating mix of high quality coffees.
The new Eggfast is tentatively planned for opening at 1607 North High Street sometime in October 2012.
