The Egg & I Restaurants has announced that its Scottsdale breakfast and lunch franchise, The Egg I Am, located 10155 East Via Linda, will hold a pre-opening event, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 26, with proceeds donated to the 100 Club of Arizona.
The restaurant, purchased by Sean Anderson and Annette Ruder, owners and operators of The Egg I Am in Gilbert, will officially re-open the Scottsdale site at 6 a.m. on Monday, June 27 with new menu items and a remodeled interior, according to a press release, noting that the restaurant will operate from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on weekends.
The cause is personal for the restaurant’s co-owner, Mr. Anderson, a former first-responder and nurse spearheading the charitable event for the organization that assists families of fallen or injured public safety officers and firefighters, as well as provides resources to enhance their safety and welfare.
“We wanted to partner with the 100 Club of Arizona so we could directly support those families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty,” Mr. Anderson said. “We have tremendous respect for our public officers, and we figured inviting our new friends and neighbors to a fund-raiser is a great way to honor those men and women while we celebrate our re-opening. We’re looking forward to sharing our new menu and our new look with the local community.”
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
