Another Broken Egg plans second BR location

Another Broken Egg said it will open a second Baton Rouge restaurant in January, near the Perkins Road and Bluebonnet Boulevard.

Stuart Ottinger, chief operating officer of Double R Restaurant Group, the Baton Rouge franchisee for Another Broken Egg, said he decided to open the second restaurant because of the success of the Corporate Boulevard location.

The new restaurant will be at 9655 Perkins Road, in the space most recently occupied by Podnuh’s Bar-B-Q.

Double R, which is based in Lafayette, has 11 Another Broken Eggs, including locations in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. The restaurant operator, which was founded three years ago, owns the Romacelli restaurants in Lafayette and Youngsville.

There are four Another Broken Egg restaurants in Louisiana and a fifth location, on Magazine Street in New Orleans, is set to open by the end of the year.

Another Broken Egg, which is open for breakfast and lunch, specializes in omelettes and eggs Benedict.

The chain was founded in Mandeville in 1994, but its corporate offices are now in Florida.
