Local Breakfast Chain Opens New Location on Eastern

Just months after a car crashed into the patio of its Sahara Avenue location, Egg Works and Egg & I opened its fifth location in southern Nevada.

The company suffered a serious blow when a car drove into the Sahara location’s patio April 1 during the lunch rush, seriously injuring 10 people. The restaurant closed for weeks before reopening in early May.

Business hours are 6 am until 3 pm daily. The local restaurant chain first opened in Las Vegas in 1988.

Groundbreaking Ceremony for FedEx Ground Distribution Center

Groundbreaking Ceremony for FedEx Ground Distribution Center

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday for a new FedEx Ground distribution center under construction in Henderson.

The new facility is being built at St. Rose Parkway and Bruner Avenue, which is near the M Resort.

FedEx Ground specializes in delivery small packages around the country. It is one of 11 new hubs that have been added to the company's nationwide network over the past five years.

The distribution center will be finished in 15 to 16 months, bringing with it about 210 jobs.

"This is actually a major indicator, I think, showing that our economy is coming back," Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen said. "With this, I really think, it says hey 2008, 2009  is gone and we're looking forward to newer, bigger and brighter things in the city of Henderson."

It will be used to service the Salt Lake City and Denver areas. The volume of packages FedEx Ground handles every business day has doubled in the past 10 years.
