Local Restaurant Chain Adding Sixth Location

By Lou Hirsh Wednesday, October 26, 2011

San Diego-based restaurant chain Broken Yolk Café plans to open its sixth location in early December in Oceanside. A company statement issued Oct. 20 said the restaurant will open in the space that formerly housed Crabby Bob’s Seafood Grill on Vista Way.

The company recently initiated a franchise development program, with an eye on converting closed restaurant locations to the Broken Yolk format, which debuted with the first San Diego eatery in 1979.

Valerie McCartney, the company’s vice president of franchise development, said there is a “larger-than-average inventory of sites that would potentially fit our brand.”

The Oceanside restaurant will be operated by franchisees Randy and McKenzie Corrigan, who have a development agreement to open a second store that will likely be somewhere along the Interstate 15 corridor. The company also is scouting for franchisees in the Orange County and Los Angeles markets, the statement said.
