Our Epic Story

Epic Beginnings

Mike Moriarty has been in the restaurant business since he started cooking to work his way through college at CSU in 1984 at Mercy Farm Restaurant.  In 1989 Mike moved to Greeley as the kitchen manager for Rayno Seaser for a new exciting breakfast concept, which he would buy in 1996 as the first franchisee.  In 1998 he purchased the Cheyenne location and opened a second Greeley location in 2002.  Being part of a thriving restaurant concept was exciting and opened the door to many opportunities.

Christy Moriarty has extensive experience with food and management working in Albertson’s butcher block and as a seafood merchandiser for North East Seafood. Christy is a foodie and has a passion for great and delicious food.  In 2015 Mike and Christy met, fell in love and joined forces just in time for big changes; leaving the franchise group and re-brand as their own Epic Egg Restaurants.  This decision revived an entrepreneurial and epicurean spirit and allowed the Moriartys to focus on local flavors, local businesses and pledging 1% of sales toward local charities.
