If you are a non-New Yorker and have grown weary listening to your Big Apple-based friends wax rhapsodic about H&H Bagels, you may soon get a chance to judge for yourself what all the fuss is about. The brand, whose motto is “Like No Other Bagel in the World,” has announced plans to open bagel shops in 25 locations across the country, including Boca Raton, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Los Angeles, and Stamford, Connecticut.
Later this year, H&H will also become more accessible to those who commute to and from New York by opening a store in Penn Station.
Jay Rushin, CEO of H&H, is quoted by Chain Store Age as proclaiming, “We’re excited to bring our legendary New York City bagels to cities across the country as part of our expansion plan. With each new company-owned and franchise location, we are looking forward to welcoming new customers to the H&H family, while working with like-minded entrepreneurs who are eager to bring an iconic brand and an authentic New York City bagel to cities all across the country.”
