Following an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank, New York City’s Bantam Bagels was able to expand exponentially. The company’s bite-sized bagel balls stuffed with cream cheese can be now be found in thousands of locations, including Starbucks stores and retail outlets such as Target, Costco, and Kroger, as well as its flagship store in New York City.
This fall, Bantam Bagels is sending out a food truck to major cities across the country to share its bagels. Throughout September, the company brought its truck to Seattle, making stops all over the city and surrounding areas, including at grocery store parking lots, festivals, and parks.
The Bantam Mobile is back!! We had a blast visiting Seattle for the month of September, but now it’s time to take the Bantam Mobile to a new city!!!! We’re giving out free bagels in a brand new city starting on October 24... any guesses where we’re going next?!?! ⠀ #BantamBagels #BantamMobile #bringBantamsTo?? #wheretonext? @promobilekitchen
The truck next made its way to Atlanta. During several weeks in October and November, it will serve its products in the parking lots of Kroger stores throughout the city and surrounding areas. Free bagels are on the menu, including classic, everything, cinnamon bun, French toast, and pretzel flavors.
Husband and wife team, Nick and Elyse Oleksak, are the owners and founders of Bantam Bagels. They are currently travelling with the food truck, as they meet bagel fans in new areas of the country.
