Jimmy's Egg investment partner Wink Hartman Sr. to buy out managing partner Whitney VinZant

WICHITA — Jimmy's Egg managing partner Whitney VinZant issued a joint statement with investment partner Wink Hartman Sr. in response to Have You Heard? inquiries about the partnership possibly dissolving.

Hartman is in the due diligence phase of buying the remaining interest of five Jimmy's Egg franchises in Wichita and one in Houston.

VinZant, who is a partner in Mike's Wine Dive and the Gaslamp Grille & Lounge, among other restaurants, will no longer be a part of the Jimmy's Egg franchises here if and when the deal is complete.

"I am excited that Wink is focused on taking this concept to the next level by further expanding into Wichita and surrounding areas," VinZant said in the statement.

Jimmy's Egg, a breakfast franchise based in Oklahoma City, has more than 125 employees in Wichita.
