The hottest breakfast, brunch & lunch franchise in Texas is now expanding in the US!



A toast to a great opportunity

The Toasted Yolk Cafe brings experienced restaurant professionals and savvy business entrepreneurs the opportunity to operate a limited daypart concept (breakfast, lunch, brunch only!) – with a difference.

Backed by years of experience in food service, and with multiple locations under our belts, we are committed to bringing our quality-focused mix of breakfast and lunch classics to the masses. Yet, each of our menu items comes with a unique contemporary spin and can be accompanied by a wide selection of beverages, including draft beers and a full wine list.

It all adds up to a breakfast-lunch restaurant franchise concept – and opportunity – unlike any other. Our fully-supported restaurant business model is designed for maximum bottom-line impact and growth, with both streamlined staffing needs and hours of operation. And we’re looking for seasoned professionals to join us as we grow!
