Los Angeles-based Brooklyn Bagel Bakery is offering a more diverse selection of its popular bagels, including Jalapeño Cheese Bagels, Onion Stix Bagels, Banana Bagels and Strawberry Bagels made with real fruit.

The wholesale/retail bakery also introduces its own Energy Bar, which is packed with raisins, dried cranberries, blueberry flavored cranberries, cinnamon walnuts, and made with a 9 grain mix.

Brooklyn Bagel Bakery was started in 1953, by founder Seymour Friedman. He rented space from Weitz’s Bakery, in the West Adams section of Los Angeles. He later took over the bakery at the 4658 West Adams Blvd., and Brooklyn Bagel Bakery came into existence. The company moved to its current location at 2217 West Beverly Boulevard in 1965. To this day, Brooklyn Bagel Bakery is owned and operated by the Friedman family.

Brooklyn Bagel Bakery still makes bagels the traditional way by boiling them before they are baked. Although this method is more time consuming, Brooklyn Bagel Bakery feels that it is the only way to produce a product the bakery is proud of to offer. This is a real bagel and not a roll with a hole. Most of Brooklyn Bagel Bakery’s business is wholesale, including deliveries to all of Los Angeles and Orange counties.
