This the history of how Eggs Inc was laid: a journey to France and discovering a niche. Five years later you can visit the world’s first healthy fast food restaurant on Regeringsgatan 26, Stockholm.
– I wanted to open a restaurant but I can’t cook. It took me about a year to figure this out and find Andreas Hedlund, the Chef of the Year in 2002, Fredrik Önrup, the revenue manager, and Kent Jonsson, the egg farmer – says Dan Lorentzon, founder of the Eggs Inc.
What was the most difficult part about setting up their business? Well, you may be surprised: finding a location for their restaurant. Landlords usually prefer big players with well recognisable brands.
A survey from Svenska Ägg, the Swedish trade association of companies operating in the egg industry, says that 97 percent of Swedes like eggs. This means there is huge demand. Because of the nutritional value of eggs and the fact that Eggs Inc. doesn’t have direct competitors, the perfect recipe is created for a dynamically growing business. That’s why they plan to develop a larger franchise chain in Scandinavia first and then the rest of Europe.
