History and Growth
Established in 1975, Bagel Boss has grown from our roots as a neighborhood bakery to a franchise brand accessible by
aspiring bagel shop owners nationwide. We are 5th and 6th generation bagel bakers who have been serving New York’s finest bagels since 1935.
From lox & homemade cream cheese in a variety of flavors to babka, rugelach, challah breads and more. As a franchise brand with 15 locations and growing, we have been supporting both our family and independent owners alike – with our secret recipes, procedures and operational models to be able to maintain a commitment to the quality of our products and beverages.
Key Milestones Between Initial Franchise Launch and Today?
In 2020, in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic, we decided to re-invigorate our franchise opportunity beyond the New York market – comfort and love become more important than ever to families everywhere and our Bagel of the Month Club shipments were becoming a very big part of our business – enough to tell us that there was demand in other parts of the country. We are seeking aspiring entrepreneurs all across the country who are ready to commit to a brand that will change their lives. Pursue your passion to own your own Bagel Boss – we are here to welcome you to the family.
Today we have 14 operating units in New York and 1 in New Jersey.
We want you to have the opportunity to meet our founders and get to know a little bit about them and why they are proud to be a part of the Bagel Boss Brand.
