The Bagel Bakery is not only a place where you can indulge in delectable bagels, but also a place of community. This business was created to give people a place to meet, socialize and enjoy each other’s company.
We are so fortunate to have such a strong community atmosphere in the restaurant. A former employee, Emily Christianson, came by recently to tell us all about her fiancé, her moving to Colorado and her new job. It’s so nice to remember the relationships that are built here at the Bagel Bakery.
I met Ed Petkus many years ago after he had been eating at the Bagel Bakery for about 10 years. He never failed to strike up a conversation and was always a reminder of why I do what I do. A few years ago, a failing heart required him to move to an assisted living facility in California, but Ed is very fondly remembered at the Bagel Bakery.
Not only is our goal to continue to make the best bagels, sandwiches and coffee, but also to continue to cultivate a sense of community. I think that that may be our expertise.
