The Egg & I Restaurants in Nebraska have been selected by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) as a state winner for the Restaurant Neighbor Award. Each year, the NRAEF recognizes restaurants around the country that are committed to giving back to their communities with the Restaurant Neighbor Award. This award goes to restaurants that go above and beyond in community service and aims to inspire other restaurateurs to get or stay involved in their local communities.

The Egg & I in Nebraska will now compete with other state winners across the country for the national award. Four national winners will be selected and each will receive a $5000 award to help support its charity of choice or community project.
