Breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant Eggs Up Grill will expand its Texas presence with eight new locations planned for the greater Austin area, according to a representative of the franchise.

Four locations will be opened in the North Austin area by Michael and Rana Bosleah, who also own Hurricane Grill & Wings in Round Rock and Levant Café & Grill in Cedar Park. Megan Hood and Omar Thompson will open four more locations in South Austin.

An initial North Austin-area location of the restaurant franchise, which first opened in South Carolina, is expected to open later this year.
