Hotels, corner stores, and cafes are always looking for new products to offer customers. An exciting new selection will always encourage more buyers to check out your spread. Even if they don’t find something they like in your new product list, they might find something to enjoy in your existing menu.
If you’re looking to net some new regulars, rolling out authentic New York City bagels is a good way to draw in the breakfast/lunch crowd. Now, we don’t mean that literally. Bagels require quite a bit of space and time to make, and you might not have time to hand-roll a hundred bagels a week. In this situation, your best option is a reliable wholesaler. They can give you the product you need for less, and have it delivered fresh and on-time.
Chances are, you might have some doubts about rushing into a new business idea. That’s good! Here’s a quick FAQ to help answer some of your questions.
What kind of bagels do I order?
That depends on your customer base! We definitely recommend investing in some ‘original’ flavors like plain, egg, whole wheat, and garlic/onion. These are bestsellers for a reason, and they work as versatile breakfast/lunch options. However, offering sweet flavors like chocolate chip, blueberry, and cranberry is never a bad idea. If a flavor isn’t working out, you can always cut it from your order and replace it with a more popular one.
How will I compete with other bagel stores?
If you offer more than just bagels, you’re already ahead of the game. People usually order more than just bagels, so selling additional items like coffee, snacks, and deli meats is a good way to draw in potential customers. It’s also important to remember that your wholesaler’s quality contributes to your sales, and New Yorker Bagels provides nothing but the best. Once they’ve had a taste of an authentic New York bagel, they’ll definitely remember your store.
What kind of profit can I make?
If you’re just counting the bagels, this of course depends on how much you order and how much you sell them for. New Yorker Bagels offers wholesale price on their bagels, which allows you to make a profit by marking them up individually. That said, because overnight shipping of our fresh bagels is quite expensive, most wholesale customer use are bagels to set themselves apart, not for direct profit, as chances are you’ll sell more than just bagels. Customers will purchase coffee, drinks, toppings, and other add-on items when they check-out, which nets you more profit.
Bagels are more than just a food, they’re a marketing tool! With a wide spread of bagels, you can draw in customers and entice them into becoming regulars. Between busy-body breakfasters and the lunch rush, bagels are a sure-fire way to make a profit.
