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!
