Peg’s Glorified Ham n Eggs will open for business Wednesday next to Raley’s at 3697 S. Carson St.
The breakfast and lunch hours restaurant, which will open daily from 6:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., will operate in the family tradition of outlets first begun in Oregon that has had Northern Nevada outlets the past 16 years. The owner of the new Peg’s is Fred Lee, Jr., whose parents Fred and JoAnna — known as the years as Pops and Peg — began their business in 1959. Peg’s currently has a half dozen locations operated by the Lee family children.
“We are very excited to be able to come closer to our customers in Carson City and all the neighboring communities,” the younger Lee said prior to opening his new restaurant.
Peg’s is a full-service, sit-down family restaurant.
“As a family,” said the younger Lee, “we are very proud to have been serving the Northern Nevada area since 1999, and we want to thank everyone for their support over the years.”
The founders began their Oregon group of restaurants in Portland and after 35 years had 18 outlets. They retired from Eugene, Ore., to Reno but found retirement didn’t take, so their next venture in 1999 began in downtown Reno. The children entered the business as well over time, serving what they refer to as glorified food while providing “egg-cellent” service.
