Company History

When Nord Brue and Mike Dressell started Bruegger's Bagels in 1983, they were the first to bring New York-style bagels to neighborhoods across America. They worked with a professional bagel baker from New York City for 2½ years to perfect their recipe and baking process. Up until that point, bagels were considered mostly an ethnic food and were not known much outside of New York. At that time, less than one-third of Americans had ever tasted a bagel!

From their home base in Burlington, Vermont, Nord and Mike developed Bruegger's into a fast casual bagel bakery, a comfortable place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or a mid-day coffee break. Today, 30 years after the first Bruegger's Bagels opened, there are over 300 Bruegger's Bagels bakeries in 26 states, the District of Columbia and Canada.
