Eggheadz LLC Signs Investment Agreement to Grow Popular Louisville Restaurant Chain, Wild Eggs
Eggheadz LLC recently signed an investment agreement to grow the popular Louisville restaurant chain, Wild Eggs. BGD partner John S. Lueken and others assisted with the transaction.
According to Louisville Business First, Eggheadz LLC signed a definitive agreement with private equity firm Patoka Capital in March, after eight months of talks. Under the agreement, Patoka Capital will invest in the growth of the popular local Louisville breakfast and lunch restaurant chain that differentiates itself from typical breakfast eateries with clever menu items and innovative recipes.
The founders will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of Wild Eggs, while Patoka Capital will handle the back office work including human resources and financing.
Though it’s early in the game, the partnership eventually could pave the way for Wild Eggs to reach the scale of other Louisville-based restaurant startups that have grown to become public companies, including Papa John’s International Inc. and Texas Roadhouse Inc.
Currently, there are four Wild Eggs locations in Louisville, Kentucky, two in Lexington, Kentucky, one in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and one in Denver. The eatery is actively looking to expand into Cincinnati and Indianapolis.
