Bantam Bagels is relaunching its popular, original retail bakery in New York City’s iconic West Village. A shop redesign taking place this month, will be centered around innovation and creativity, the anchor that popularized their mini stuffed bagels when Bantam exploded into the New York City market just 5 years ago.
The new Bantam Bagels retail shop, located in its original location at 283 Bleecker Street, will become an innovation hub for co-founders and inventors of the Bantam Bagel, Nick and Elyse Oleksak. The new menu will feature rotating “flavors of the month”, where Nick and Elyse will spotlight unique, creative and exclusive Bantam Bagels flavors that can only be accessed to those who visit the retail shop. The menu will feature “Bantam Boards”, charcutier-style pallets consisting of Bantams, spreads and accoutrements that highlight different Bantam Bagels – Bantam Egg Bites and Bantam Pancakes – all part of a dine-in experience.
Since launching their mini stuffed bagel concept in the heart of NYC, Elyse and Nick grew Bantam Bagels from one tiny shop to tens of thousands of points of distribution nationwide – Starbucks cafes, grocery stores and Targets.
“As we grow Bantam’s presence outside of New York City, it’s more important than ever for us to reflect and honor our New York roots, and to create an environment where we can both celebrate where the Bantam was born, and continue to facilitate a culture of innovation and creativity,” said Elyse Oleksak, co-founder of Bantam Bagels. “It’s our goal to bring a bite of NYC to people, wherever they are.”
New York City’s Bleecker Street is a center of innovation for authentic New York City made brands across America. A well-curated mix of small brands with big ideas, Bleecker Street has been home to Bantam Bagels since inception, a spot chosen by its founders for its authenticity. “In our continued mission to revolutionize frozen breakfast, we recognize that serving iconic food across the country is only as credible as the authenticity of our roots,” adds co-founder Nick Oleksak.
Bantam’s flagship shop is in NYC’s West Village, but you can find Bantams at many grocery stores nationwide, including Kroger, Target and Starbucks cafes. Bantam Bagels can also be ordered online at bantambagels.com.
