If you run a bagel shop, you are set up to turn out bagels en masse, with plenty of room for variety and volume. If, however, you want to sell bagels but they aren’t your specialty or even a major selling item among your other offerings, doing your own bagel production can be self-defeating for several reasons:
- Most shops not specifically set up to make bagels just don’t have room for the equipment and prep areas – let alone the dedicated boiling and oven space required to turn out authentic bagels.
- Speaking of equipment, bagels have a complete specialty line of necessary tools required to create, proof, boil, and bake bagels properly. That can get pricey, fast.
- Bagel making is time intensive, with a series of required steps that culminate in the perfect bagel. Do you really want to start getting up at 4 am every day to start your bagels?
- All of the expenditures that go into bagel making can be hard to pay off, especially if bagels are only a small part of your operation. Wouldn’t it be easier if the amount and types of bagels you need for your clientele just showed up ready to go every day?
Fortunately, wholesale bagel bakeries exist for the exact purpose of supplying all of the little stores and delis that want to offer bagels to their customers but can’t manage the kind of full scale operation that truly good bagel making requires and demands.
Whether you run a small convenience store with a range of on-the-go foods, a corner deli with the option of bagel and a schmear right up there next to the hoagie, or a doughnut shop trying to attract those with a need for healthier breakfast fare, a wholesale bagel baker can provide you with just the right amount of product on any given day.
Best of all, this product is priced properly for you to be able to profit from a decent markup, requires little or no prep to be serve-ready, and is delivered fresh from the oven, just in time for your morning or lunchtime crowd to take advantage of every crispy, chewy, delicious bite.
New Yorker bagels come in a wide variety of flavors, with a range of sizes, from large bagels to mini-bagels and even bialys if you want to offer a bigger selection of fresh bread products. Choose form the standards – egg, onion, poppy seed, and everything; add a few health conscious options like quinoa multi-grain, cranberry energy and tried and true whole wheat, and finish off with a cinnamon raisin and blueberry explosion for those who want a fresh fruit flavor in their morning snack.
Using a wholesale bagel bakery can expand your offering and provide new ways to bring in customers and turn an extra profit.
