Cage-free eggs will be coming soon to Krystal.

ATLANTA – The Krystal Company became the latest foodservice operator to commit to sourcing only cage-free eggs in its supply chain. The company recently announced its plans to transition to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2026.

The company offers a variety of breakfast items including the Sunriser sandwich, Scrambler bowl, biscuit sandwiches, platters and other menu options.

“In response to consumers’ changing preferences, we have informed our egg suppliers of our expectation that they fully transition to cage-free eggs by 2026,” said Omar Janjua, president and CEO of The Krystal Company.

Krystal, one of the first hamburger chains established in the South, operates more than 350 restaurants in 11 states. The chain is known for its hamburgers which are served on a square bun.
