Another Broken Egg locations in Destin and Grayton Beach will look a little different starting this week as the two restaurants are changing their name to Crackings.
An announcement was made on social media Monday morning.
“Good morning everyone! We have a new name!” announced the Crackings Destin Facebook page. “Our Destin and Grayton Beach locations have decided to part ways with Another Broken Egg Cafe for a new adventure! We have the same owners and staff, just a new journey!”
Restaurant owners Tommy and Marcia Green first opened Another Broken Egg in Destin 19 years ago, and opened the Grayton Beach location seven years later.
When asked why the restaurants are changing names, Marcia Green said the family is just ready to step out with their own brand.
“We started with Another Broken Egg before it was a franchise,” she said. “The franchise sold and we are just going in a different direction. It was just time to take a different road.
"We have three sons, two of them are working with us, and we just want this to be something to grow in our family," she added. "We are very grateful through all the experience we got through this, we are leaving on good terms. We are just going on a new adventure.”
Crackings will operate in much the same way as Another Broken Egg did, Green said, still offering breakfast, brunch and lunch and the restaurants will keep the iconic pottery mugs, only now with the new Crackings logo.
As for the menu, it too will see changes, but Green ensured that the Destin crowd will still recognize many of the local favorites.
“We’ve got a different menu, but we already had a lot of different items on our menu that (my son) Preston came up with,” Green said.
As for the new name, Green said that was her idea.
“I got it in the middle of the night,” she said. “It’s really just kind of a wonder.”
Crackings will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, visit www.crackingsfl.com or find them on Facebook by searching Crackings-Destin.
