Wild Eggs is coming to Colorado

It's not all bourbon and KFC. Kentucky may know a thing or two about food after all, and it's bringing its know-how to Colorado. Wild Eggs, a Louisville-based breakfast super-mini-chain with Colorado roots is expanding into the state in the near future, according to the Denver Business Journal.

The paper reports:

With several locations in Louisville (Kentucky, not the Boulder neighbor), now Eggheadz has a management agreement effective this month with Rothberg's brother, Michael, under which Michael Rothberg would open as many as five Wild Eggs in Denver.

"At this point it's a matter of securing a property," J.D. Rothberg said. Michael Rothberg has signed a letter of intent on a building, J.D. Rothberg said. Details about the location have not been released.

Wild Eggs serves up homey, hearty basics like omelets, pancakes, eggs, soups, and sandwiches, mostly under $10.

According to the restaurant's website, the Rothbergs' great grandfather settled in Denver about a century ago and started up Zell's Potato Company. Breakfast is a tradition that has been passed down since.
