SPC Group, operator of Shake Shack in South Korea, is bringing Eggslut, the California-based egg sandwich chain, to Seoul.
The group has acquired the rights to exclusively operate in South Korea and Singapore. The first Korean Eggslut store will be launched at the Starfield Coex Mall in Seoul in June.
Details of a Singapore launch have yet to be revealed.
“We are pleased to show Korean guests the special taste of Eggslut, which means someone who loves eggs,” said Jeff Vales, co-founder of Eggslut.
“SPC Samlip has the standout production and supply chain of eggs, meat processing, vegetables, sauces, etc. based on baking technology. Therefore SPC Samlip is the best partner to maintain the high quality of the Eggslut menus,” he added.
Founded by chef Alvin Cailan in 2011, Eggslut is famous for its egg sandwich made with a brioche bun, coddled egg and sriracha mayo sauce. The chain now operates stores in four countries including the UK and Japan.
