JimmysEgg.jpgJimmy's Egg franchisee Whitney VinZant and a group of partners have major expansion plans for the greater Wichita market.

They've already announced their first location, which is at 21st and Rock.

Next up is Central and Tyler in the former Godfather's Pizza space.

"It's a great entry point into the west side of Wichita," VinZant says. "The location is optimal for a Jimmy's Egg."

He thinks the entire market is optimal.

"Within the restaurant industry, breakfast is an underserved sector," VinZant says. Breakfast options "are just terribly few."

VinZant plans a total of about five Jimmy's Eggs by 2010. That likely will include sites in Andover and Derby.

Don Piros
of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the lease at Central and Tyler and is helping VinZant find other locations.

Ink Construction
is extensively remodeling the Godfather's space and will help with future construction as well.

Ink owner Wink Hartman Sr. is one of the Jimmy's partners. So is Morrie Sheets, who is the real estate contact for the local franchises.
The Rock Road Jimmy's opens Nov. 17. The Central and Tyler space should be ready in March.

"We're very excited," VinZant says.
Look for an announcement about a third site within weeks.
