New Jersey: Popular Bagel Chain Expanding With 3 More Locations

We love our bagels here, and we are proud of it. In fact, we need even more. Bagel Supreme, one of the more popular New Jersey bagel chains in the state is growing to 12 stores now, with three new locations coming soon. It's certainly not very easy for a local small business, outside of a franchise model, to grow quickly in the restaurant industry to the point where they will open multiple new locations together. However, "Bagel Supreme is your 'go-to' quick and easy non-fast food bite to eat to start your morning or early afternoon," they say. There's something special about walking into a bagel shop in your own town on an early weekend morning. It's usually a little warm in there due to the baking ovens. You may be met with the aroma of coffee being brewed. Among the folks packed in the small space by the counter, you will likely run into a neighbor or acquaintance from town. Then, seeing those fresh and hot bagels in the baskets behind the counter, heightens the comfort and excitement of where you are. There's nothing like being there there the right time when the baker comes over and dumps a fresh batch of bagels right in the basket of the flavor you wanted. At Bagel Supreme, you experience all of these elements, which seems to be part of the reason people keep coming back for more. Here Are All The Locations Where You Can Find This New Jersey Bagel Chain Coming soon will be Linden, Rahway, and Scotch Plains. While the addresses and opening dates are still to be determined you can follow the updates on Bagel Supreme's website. In the meantime, you can pull in to any of these of these nine locations.

This is located at 9401 5th Avenue in Brooklyn. Suggested orders at this hometown bagel shop include the baker's dozen where you fill a bag with everything, sesame, and pumpernickel bagels. Don't forget to add in a few plain that they can throw on top so that you have something to rip apart and snack on during the drive home, while sipping your hot coffee. If you are feeling extra hungry, Bagel Supreme also has breakfast egg or lox sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, and omelets.
