7 New Challenges for our customers for the New Year

Happy 2016! We’re excited to see what fresh things the new year brings us and our customers. Here are a few challenges we have for you all to make sure you start the year off right and full of bagels.


  1. Try a new type of Bagel


We all have our favorite bagels, but it doesn’t hurt to switch it up every once in a while. We hear great things about our Jalapeño/Cheddar bagel. Consider giving it a try!


  1. Try a new type of cream cheese


If you’re not ready to stray from your original bagel choice, then pair it with a new cream cheese. Veggie? Salmon? Jalapeño Chive Onion? Honey Walnut? The possibilities are endless.


  1. Try out all the recipes on our blog so far!


There are so many delicious things you can make with bagels. We’ve featured recipes for Thanksgiving bagel stuffing, bagel quiche, eggs in a bagel, breakfast pizza bagels, baked bagel French toast and more. Pick up a bag of bagels from us and try making some of these!


  1. Try one of our sandwiches


Not in the mood for a bagel? No problem. Our sandwiches are fresh and made-to-order every day, so stop by on your lunch break and grab one!


  1. Give our muffins a try!


In addition to our sandwiches, muffins and pastries are some of our other non-bagel food items. These are made fresh every morning, so you’ll never get frozen, cellophane wrapped sweets from us!


  1. Take a shot at our coffee


In addition to owning the Bagel Bakery, Ken also owns Rembrandt Coffee. Rembrandt is served fresh every day at the Bagel Bakery. The grounds come straight from Guatemala as the brand specializes in direct-trade, shade-grown Guatemalan coffee. When you try our coffee, you’re also benefiting the people of Guatemala! Lucky for you, the Bagel Bakery offers Rembrandt coffee roasted or green coffee by the pound.


  1. Take some bagels to work with you to share


Be extra nice one morning and treat your co-workers to some bagels. You can get them by the bag! Our Bag O’ Bagels menu option comes with TWO 8 oz. cream cheese spreads of your choice. What an awesome deal!


  1. Take some of our coffee to work with you to share (or hog it all to yourself!)


Coffee is a pretty vital necessity in the morning. Take some extra and share it with your office neighbors, or just save it for yourself when you’re stuck in that mid-morning rut.
