Last August, California's Squeeze In breakfast and lunch restaurant chain announced that it was looking to build eight locations in Las Vegas. Now, two of those expansions have been unveiled and the franchise expects both to be open by the end of spring.
Already located in Reno and Sparks, Reno's Chris Lowe and Dina Gonzalez are behind the Las Vegas branches, explaining last year that they were building the first three themselves and pairing with investors for the remaining five.
Their first home is headed to Spring Valley at the Apache Plaza at the corner of Ft. Apache Road and Reno Drive, Squeeze In will take over the corner 2,564-square-foot space, a few doors down from Sweet Addiction.
The second site beams into the southeast at the Regal Plaza, anchored by the Regal Cinemas Colonnade 14 movie theater and also home to the Truffles N Bacon Cafe.
Squeeze In proudly sports an alien mascot as their figurehead and their claim on the title of "Best Omelettes On The Planet." The casual menu features "eggs benedict, celebrity chef inspired French toast, pancakes, breakfast burritos," plus familiar fare of "souped up" sandwiches, salads and "really boss" burgers.
Keeping a tradition since their 1974 debut, the Las Vegas restaurants will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The company noted both locations will "hopefully open by May."
