New York-based Bagel Boss has announced its expansion to the Sunshine State with the opening of thirteen new locations across South Florida. Known for its award-winning bagels, smoked fish, and a variety of schmears, salads and gourmet coffee, the chain is set to bring a taste of New York to Boca Raton, Miami, Aventura, Surfside, Hollywood and Davie.

“Our expansion into South Florida is not just about growth; it’s about bringing a piece of New York culture to new communities,” says Andrew Hazen, chief executive officer of Bagel Boss. “We are excited to be opening a “baker’s dozen” locations including the Aventura Mall, which is the third-largest shopping mall in the U.S. averaging more than 28 million visitors per year.”

Bagel Boss has signed two multi-unit deals in South Florida, with new stores to be located strategically in vibrant neighborhoods and bustling business districts, making it easy for both locals and tourists to access them.
