Randy and Liz Price, co-founders of the Rocky Mountain Restaurant Group, could not be happier to announce the renaming of their three Over Easy restaurants in Colorado Springs.
“We have decided to rename all our breakfast restaurants to Urban Egg, A Daytime Eatery at this time,” Randy Price said.
When Price opened the first Over Easy, he registered that name with the state. “Then we learned there were other restaurants in other states using the Over Easy name, independent of one another,” he said.
When the company was ready to expand the daytime eatery into Fort Collins and Denver, Price acquired the rights to Urban Egg, A Daytime Eatery.
“It makes sense from a branding standpoint to operate under one name that we own,” he said. “It simplifies things. We no longer require two websites and duplicate social media accounts. It will be easier for our marketing team to manage one brand.”
Price is adamant that nothing but the name will change.
“We will continue to offer the same great menu at all our breakfast restaurants, have the same great staffs and continue to be a leader in the breakfast restaurant category through innovative, locally sourced, delicious menu items,” he said.
Some additions to the menu will be revealed Monday, when the name is officially changed. The Colorado Springs eateries will celebrate with specials and giveaways at 28A S. Tejon St., 5262 N. Nevada Ave. and 5925 Dublin Blvd.
