Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch, and lunch concept, began serving the most important meal of the day at 6 a.m. today in Apopka at 502 S. Hunt Club Blvd. The restaurant will be the first for franchise partners and Orlando residents Geoff Giordano and Kate Rozen. The couple plans to open at least two more restaurants in Orlando, with their second location coming this summer to the new area of O-Town West on 11020 Daryl Carter Parkway.
“Geoff and I are eager to introduce Eggs Up Grill to Apopka and be involved in this wonderful community,” says Kate Rozen. “We know Eggs Up Grill’s guest experience and menu will offer residents the best new breakfast, brunch, lunch, and catering restaurant in town, serving guests sunup through lunch.”
With indoor seating for 121, plus an outdoor patio, the 3,200 square-foot restaurants is designed to make guests feel at home in a light, bright and cheerful atmosphere. The Apopka restaurant will offer counter and communal seating, serving guests seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with dine-in, online ordering, takeout, and delivery options available.
Eggs Up Grill caters for events, big or small, with a menu featuring breakfast favorites like eggs, grits, home fries, biscuits and gravy, and muffins. Salads and sandwiches are available for catered lunch.
Prior to joining Eggs Up Grill, Giordano worked with Marriott International for 13 years, most recently serving as a manager of food and beverage at Orlando World Center Marriott. Rozen brings 25 years of marketing and branding expertise to this new family business. She has worked with leading Fortune 100 companies and as a global brand leader for large ad agencies in New York City.
Giordano and Rozen came across Eggs Up Grill while searching for a new business venture and fell in love with the brand, the leadership, and the opportunity to own a profitable business in the breakfast segment that values family and community.
“Our family is our top priority, so being able to combine our entrepreneurial spirit with a brand that is conducive to family life was exactly what we were looking for,” says Giordano.

We will have to try it. My husband loves breakfast and eggs. I like breakfast too, but have never cared for eggs. Only way I will eat eggs is deviled, because with the relish, mayo and mustard they are disguised, or in recipes with other ingredients. I especially hate a fried egg with the yellow liquid yolk running out on the plate. I will shut up about my egg hating, because I know it sounds childish. We drove by the front of it a week or so ago. You know what I really miss there in that shopping center? The restaurant that the Publix used to have on the front of their grocery store, there at Hunt Club in Apopka You could sit down, and order on the menu, or grab a bite at the deli, and sit there at the restaurant, or even have coffee and socialize, if your spouse was out there in the store shopping. They never ran out of supplies, as they had the whole grocery there. It closed, and they just put the floral section, and greeting cards in there. I think it was a corporate mistake, on their part. Way, way back, before the pandemic, but don't know what year it closed. Oh, and of course, Ligetts. When it closed it's restaurant in Apopka, that was a heartbreaker for many. So this restaurant is based out of Pawleys Island, SC..... I have been there many times as a kid. It is home to the famous ghost that roams the beach before the hurricanes come, to warn everyone to leave, the gray man!
