About NY Bagel Café & Deli

NY Bagel Café & Deli is the brainchild of Joe Smith, an enterprising upstate New Yorker who saw the opportunities back in 1994 for making inroads in the franchise fast-food market. Take a proven commodity – everyone’s favorite “light” meal, the bagel – and then take it one step further. Offer the original New York bagel, and create a cornerstone for a bagel franchise … without the typical franchise bagel taste. Then structure the business for ease of investment and operation, and “spread the wealth” with other motivated self-starters.

You’ll find that NY Bagel Café & Deli runs rings around other bagel shops with a delicious array of complementary foods. Like popular Boar’s Head deli meats and cheeses, the smoothest flavored cream cheeses, succulent smoked salmon and richly brewed gourmet coffees. How about Panini sandwiches, popular wrap sandwiches, freshly prepared salads and fresh baked goods? We feature REAL NY Water Bagels and Bialys baked fresh every day.

Franchises opportunities are available nationwide with single and multi-units available. The concept is primed for development anywhere people love a great bagel. How about your hometown? For more information on owning a NY Bagel Cafe & Deli franchise, visit or
