Big Apple Bagels® - Simply The Best!

Big Apple Bagels® is on the forefront of the fast casual dining boom. We stand apart from the crowd with growth and consumer appeal because of our commitment to excellence in all aspects of our business.

The Big Apple Bagels® restaurant concept was developed to delight not only customers, but our franchise owner-operators as well. As a Big Apple Bagels® franchisee, you’ll be able to produce freshly baked Big Apple Bagels brand bagels, My Favorite Muffin brand gourmet muffins, a wide assortment of delicious sandwiches and salads, and serve our own Brewster’s brand of brewed coffee and specialty drinks.

The Big Apple Bagels® menu offers a broad range of lunch options to round out our menu and keep our customers coming back. Whether it’s our California Triple Decker Club sandwich on toasted wheat bread, Overstuffed Corned Beef sandwich on rye, colorful Calypso Salad, or deli sandwich favorite on a bagel, there is something for everyone.

Unlike other sandwich concepts, Big Apple Bagels® has a proven breakfast program. With the strength of the Big Apple Bagels®, My Favorite Muffin® and Brewster's® coffee brands your restaurant doubles as a bakery-café. As another example of its multiple identities, the restaurant is not only a retail destination, but also a wholesale distributorship from which your baked-from-scratch bagels and muffins can be sold in bulk to corporate clients, restaurants, convenience stores and other businesses for resale. If you've been to one of our restaurants, you've seen -- and tasted -- what keeps our customers coming back for more: Big freshly baked bagels, made from scratch ... enhanced with our exclusive varieties of CLASSIC RECIPE™ cream cheese, or made into a fresh deli or breakfast sandwich ... served with a cup of one of our gourmet Brewster's® coffees.

The time is now. The opportunity is here. We have no doubt that we are at the right place at the right time. American’s love affair with the bagel has exploded into a 2.5-billion dollar market whose growth shows no sign of slowing. Sandwich sales now exceed $3-billion dollars a year. The 2-billion dollar specialty coffee industry is undergoing its most rapid growth in history. With high-quality products in each of these growth categories, a streamlined business system and a team of professionals committed to operational excellence, we’re well poised for the future.

But, being at the right place at the right time isn’t enough. We also need the right people to grow with us. If you have the drive and ambition to build a business... backed by the systems and support of a dedicated franchising company... if you share the passion for excellence on which the Big Apple Bagels® concept was founded, we invite you to consider this franchise opportunity and encourage you to review our Franchise Support, Training, Investment, Photo Gallery and Frequently Asked Questions
