Starting Up Your Own Bagel Store

New bagel store operators are finding out that they do not have to make the bagel dough in their own store, but rather, they can order and bake-off already made raw dough bagels (also known as frozen unbaked bagels) direct from A&S Bagels. Since the baking of the bagels is still done at the store level, customers will be able to smell the bagels baking in the oven.  Just Imagine that, giving your customers what they want.

I.      Reduce your need for Labor Resources
Less wasted labor resources equals more profits.  By purchasing pre-formed dough bagels, your labor resources will not need to be dedicated to mixing the dough, and working on the bagel making machine.  Rather, you can use your paid labor more effectively in other areas of your business.
II.    Reduce your need for Physical Space
By ordering frozen dough, you will not need to purchase and store: (1) a dough mixing machine (2) a bagel making machine; (3) the many ingredients that go into making different flavor bagels (flour, yeast, sugar, raisins, blueberries, etc.); and (4) you will not need as many bagel racks that take up space in your store.  All you will need is freezer space and a oven.  Overall, the new bagel store which uses frozen dough will not need as much square footage as one that makes its own dough.  As an added benefit, smaller spaces equals less rent per month.  Consider that when looking for your new stores location.
III.   Reduce your Start-Up Costs:
Less Equipment means smaller initial investment.  You will not need to buy expensive bagel equipment (bagel mixer and bagel forming machine).  Additionally, you should also realize a savings in rent because you will not need as large of a store.  Just some freezer space and an oven.
IV.    Deliver to your Customers a Great-Tasting Consistent Product
Aside from the above reasons, you will be able offer your customers a wide variety of flavors with minimal effort.  Moreover, you will be able to serve your customers genuine great tasting NY Bagels.     We offer a wide variety of flavors to satisfy the most demanding consumer.  Your customers will love all the flavor choices.  Our flavor line includes:  



Cinnamon Raisin

Sun Dried Tomato

Whole Wheat



French Toast

Chocolate Chip





** Please keep in mind that from our plain dough you can bake many different seeded varieties of bagels, such as, sesame, poppy, onion, garlic, everything, salt and more.

The Science and Secrets of Bagel Making

As you may have heard already, one critical step in bagel making that separates true New York Bagels apart from the rest is the boiling process.
Since 1986, A&S Bagels have been boiled prior to being baked. The process of boiling our bagels prior to baking them creates the shiny crust of our bagels and the chewy interior. The bagel crust created by boiling the bagel essentially creates a wall which restricts the dough under the crust from expanding and provides the foundation of the bagel so that the bagel maintains its shape during baking in the oven. Also, once the bagel is boiled, the activity of the yeast ingredient is diminished. The yeast ingredient during the fermentation stage helps provide the bagel with its flavor and volume (size). Since the dough inside the crust is restricted from expanding due to the crust formation and the cessation of the yeast activity (and because of other factors), the dough inside of the crust of a bagel is denser and chewier than other breads (for example, rolls). Lastly, the boiling process provides a wet surface on the bagel for the toppings and seeds to adhere to.
We at A&S Bagels take great pride in every bagel we produce. We are located at 761 Hempstead Turnpike, Franklin Square, New York 11010. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
