About Brigs

On October 18, 1988, Creedmoor Road was two-lanes from Crabtree Valley Mall north, Cary was much smaller than Chapel Hill, and we opened Brigham’s Great Beginnings in Raleigh’s Brennan Station Shops! We soon changed our name to Brigs Great Beginnings to prevent confusion between us and an ice cream chain out of Massachusetts.

There were very few restaurants offering extensive breakfast selections back then, and even fewer offering an all day menu. We felt that there was a need for a restaurant that offered a brunch menu using only the best ingredients to create enjoyable and affordable meals served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. So that’s what we did!

And, that’s what we do, every day! As the area has grown, so have the number of Brigs Restaurants. Great employees became great managers who became great owners.

The menu has also grown through the years. We’ve added more salads and sandwiches, and nearly doubled the variety of breakfast items. Quality, creativity, and consistency have earned Brigs lots of great reviews, nearly two hundred  awards, and thousands of loyal customers. If you’re one of them, thanks for making Brigs so successful. If you’re not one yet, welcome!
