That Jimmy’s Egg is now closed.
Owner Wink Hartman Sr. says his management team “is going to take action to correct businesses that are not performing.”
“The concept is that we’re growing and reallocating our assets to more profitable areas and stores,” he says.
Hartman didn’t want to wait for the new Walmart Neighborhood Market to open at Marina Lakes on the southwest corner of the intersection and hope that his business increased.
“You cannot continually develop and plan your future around a Walmart,” Hartman says. “Yes, they drive traffic, but we have a breakfast concept, and it doesn’t really tie into being around a Walmart.”
The Jimmy’s Egg by Office This will open within 45 days.
Hartman has one more planned by the end of the year.
He’s close to a lease on the west side of College Hill and could have the restaurant open by Thanksgiving.
Look for more news on it soon.
