The lease on their restaurant space was ending and the landlord was increasing the rent.

"Everything has gone up," he said, "workman's comp insurance, utilities, phone, computer - everything."

Even though eggs have doubled in price they are still pretty inexpensive. So you'd have to sell a lot of scrambled eggs to keep up with the rising prices.
