The Egg and I chain of restaurants launched 30 years ago in Fort Collins. Come this March, Northern Colorado locations will have a new name.

In 2015, First Watch, based out of Florida, bought ownership of the nearly 120 The Egg and I locations across the country. Since then, they've been changing over many The Egg and I's to First Watch locations, and Northern Colorado is now seeing those changes happening.

You may have seen the location on Oakridge Drive has already changed to a First Watch. Fort Collins' other location on College (the very first The Egg and I location) will change over on March 30, 2019.  Loveland's will become a First Watch on March 9.

The First Watch Communications Manager says that the company plans to keep a couple of Egg and I locations as they are, in the Denver area, as well as the one in Estes Park.
