The restaurant is the second of 7 planned First Watch openings in partnership with RAS Concepts, LLC

SUMMERVILLE, South Carolina – January 22, 2018 – First Watch, the popular national breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant, has opened its newest restaurant in Summerville. The new First Watch is located at 1097 North Main Street in Summerville Marketplace. It is the award-winning concept’s second location in South Carolina. The 3,600-square-foot restaurant employs about 25 people.

The award-winning restaurant company currently operates restaurants in 31 states. First Watch has partnered with franchise group RAS Concepts, LLC, to bring the breakfast, brunch and lunch concept to Bluffton and Summerville, and the franchise group has plans to open a total of 7 First Watch restaurants in the Savannah and Augusta, Georgia, markets, as well as Charleston, South Carolina. The group also owns Jersey Mike’s locations in Charleston and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

“We’re confident that the folks in Summerville will really enjoy First Watch’s unique approach to breakfast, brunch and lunch,” said Ryan Hendrix, co-owner of RAS Concepts, LLC. “Summerville is a beautiful, developing area full of charm and southern hospitality, and we look forward to serving our new neighbors here for years to come.”

First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients. It includes crave-able items such as Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. The new restaurant offers healthy, flavorful favorites like house-made granola and pico de gallo, organic greens, house-roasted vegetables and cage-free eggs as well as more indulgent, traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch offerings.

The new First Watch also serves the restaurant’s new Project Sunrise coffee, grown by an independent group of female farmers in Huila, Colombia, called Mujeres en Café. The restaurant offers options from its Juice Bar – including the best-selling Kale Tonic – juiced in-house daily using only the highest quality fruits and vegetables.

First Watch serves its entire menu seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The restaurant also offers customers complimentary newspapers and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
