The first H&H Bagels franchise location will be in Boca Raton, Florida, which is expected to open in the spring of 2024. Company-owned H&H Bagels locations, Kip’s Bay and Penn Station, are slated to open in early spring as well.

“We’re thrilled to announce this monumental step forward in our nationwide expansion.” says Jay Rushin, chief executive officer of H&H Bagels. “We’ve assembled a group of exceptional franchisees to join us on this journey as we work to bring H&H from New York to your neighborhood.”

Last month, H&H Bagels underwent a rebranding initiative in anticipation of its expansion. Introducing a fresh aesthetic, the objective was to incorporate a visual identity that pays homage to the brand's rich history and promising future.
