City Egg is open and ready to serve downtown Bowling Green a variety of breakfast food options. 

The restaurant had a soft opening on March 23 and plans to hold a grand opening this month. 

City Egg is a fast-casual model of Scramblers in Toledo and Perrysburg, owned by Brandon Buerk and his family.

Scramblers was started by Buerk’s father Philip and brother Shain in the late 1980’s as a family business. 

With nearby Scramblers locations in Perrysburg, Maumee, Toledo and Findlay, and City Egg locations in Toledo and Columbus, Bowling Green was a natural fit for a City Egg addition.

When an open spot on Main Street came to his attention, Buerk “came and took one look at it and said, ‘Yes. This is our location.’” 

The population density, homey yet cosmopolitan feel and competitive nature of Main Street was perfect for Buerk.

He welcomes competition in the market that keeps his business model sharp. This drives the creation of quality products and experiences, even giving employees extremely flexible scheduling, opportunities for growth within the company and setting forth careers. 

The fast-casual experience of City Egg gives employees flexibility and also gives guests autonomy in designing their own order on kiosks, although employees are willing to help with building the order whenever a consumer may need it. 

The flexible opportunities and consideration of stakeholders extends throughout the company, taking on a familial feel as Buerk’s brother designed and built the kiosks and their kids work within the company as well.
