Destin - FL - 32541
Two years after founder Ron Green had opened The Broken Egg in Louisiana, he called his brother and sister-in-law, Tom and Marcia Green, and asked them if they wanted to open a cafe in Destin. It was then that this branch of the Green Family decided to embark on a journey into an industry that, unlike Tom’s brother, they had no knowledge or previous experience working in.
After seeing the success of Ron’s original location in Mandeville, Louisiana, opening a second location in Destin wasn’t a hard decision. In 1998, they opened their very first and aptly named “Another Broken Egg Cafe.” At that point in the company’s fledgling history, there was no franchise, no trainer team, no décor manuals, no employee manuals, no HR Specialist, or even a marketing director. Just constant phone calls seeking advice from brother Ron. Admittedly, Tom and Marcia made plenty of mistakes in those early days. But they learned from those mistakes and gained experience quickly—and, truth be told, there was plenty of prayer along the way, too.
Eighteen years later, Tom and Marcia Green operate both the Destin and Grayton Beach locations and have two of their three sons working with them. Every day is a new adventure in balancing tasty and unique flavors, meeting their guests’ individual needs, and delivering an exceptional dining experience for everyone, every time.
