Iconic New York City brand H&H Bagels has announced the reopening of its Upper West Side location after a nine-week remodeling and renovation project. The 50-year-old bagel company was started with a single location on the Upper West Side and has now expanded to five locations throughout the New York City area.

The newly renovated location stands five blocks from the original Upper West Side location and opened to the public on March 28. After opening its flagship store in 1972 and a second location in 1974 on the Upper East Side, H&H Bagels has expanded over the years with new locations in JFK Airport, LaGuardia Airport and most recently, Moynihan Train Hall at Penn Station.

The brand recently announced franchise plans to expand its fast-casual bagel concept into the top 50 US metro markets. Franchisees will receive in-depth training and the support will include everything from site selection, store construction, marketing and brand building, along with opening launch support.
