For about the first time in its 50-year lifespan, H&H Bagels, a renowned New York City company since 1972, has announced a national franchise opportunity for food franchise seekers to spread the quick casual bagel concept to the top 50 U.S. metro markets. H&H Bagels has established solid popularity over the previous five decades, recognized for its great bagels and high-quality fresh ingredients. It presently has four outlets in New York. Due to its tremendous development in recent years with countrywide delivery and a worldwide export operation, the company has grown even more in popularity in all 50 united states worldwide.
Jay Rushin, Chief Executive Officer of H&H Bagels claims, H&H Bagels has evolved into an iconic brand appreciated by individuals all over the globe since the 1970s. “As we aim to discover and collaborate with similarly minded entrepreneurs who want to provide a quality New York City bagel product to communities around the country, entering the franchise industry is a defining moment for us,” said Rushin.
H&H Bagels is famous for its outstanding sandwich choices, including house-made spreads sandwiches, fresh-griddled egg sandwiches, and smoked salmon sandwiches, and provides premium, fresh-baked bagels every day. H&H Bagels originally opened its doors in 1972 on New York City’s Upper West Side, followed by a second store on the Upper East Side in 1974. After taking over in 2014, the present executive team extended the company’s footprint with additional outlets on the Upper West Side, JFK Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and the new Moynihan Train Hall. It has also been highlighted in historical TV series and films, cementing its reputation as a globally recognized New York trademark.
The new franchise system marks a significant accomplishment for the brand since it allows franchisees to create a streamlined business with high consumer demand. With the introduction of its national wholesale operation in 2017, it provided H&H Bagels franchise to select store purveyors across the country, extending its track record of success. During the COVID-19 crisis, H&H Bagels’ statewide shipping sales increased by almost 500 percent, while its global wholesale sales increased by about 400 percent. Entrepreneurs will now operate their H&H Bagels, serving communities better, looking for a true New York City bagel experience.
H&H Bagels is already working hard to create a world-class franchise support system. Franchisees will get extensive training to provide their clients with the H&H Bagels experience. The assistance will cover everything from site selection through shop construction, marketing, brand development, and opening launch assistance. Not only will franchisees gain from the hands-on support, but they will also have a great work-life balance thanks to shop hours that promote efficiency by servicing the H&H Bagels target customer, the morning and lunch group.
