April 28, 2014 // Franchising.com // AUSTIN, Texas – Bruegger's Bagels, known for its freshly baked, authentic New York-style bagels, wholesome ingredients and signature coffees, will celebrate the opening of a second Austin location on Monday, April 28. The new bakery is at the Residences at the 704, next door to the iconic Broken Spoke Dance Hall, at 3425 South Lamar Boulevard.
Bruegger's Bagels franchisees Karlene and Roger Cusick moved from New York to Austin to bring authentic bagels to the Texas capital. The family-run business will be rounded out by son Jason Cusick, an experienced chef who will oversee both locations. This is the second of five Bruegger's Bagels locations that the Cusick family plans to open in the Austin area. The first location is in West Lake Hills on Bee Caves Road.
"The people of West Lake and Rollingswood have become our neighbors and friends," said Karlene Cusick. "We have built a close relationship with the Eanes School District by providing staff appreciation lunches, catering for team away games and donations to their PTO's. We are excited about the unique flavor of the '704 neighborhood and hope to impress with our authentic, affordable menu choices."
The South Lamar bakery will open with Bruegger's Bagels popular menu, including authentic New York-style bagels baked on site in small batches all day and made-in-Vermont cold-packed cream cheese flavors. Guests can also try Bruegger's Bagels' newest menu offerings such as the Sriracha Egg Sandwich and classic Herby Turkey lunch sandwich, and fresh salads such as the Blue Apple Salad and signature soups including Chicken Spaetzle. Current seasonal favorites will include Sea Salt & Carmel coffee, served iced or hot, and Cucumber Dill Cream Cheese.
The 1,700-square-foot bakery-cafe features indoor seating for 24, as well as an outdoor patio area for 16 guests, a full view of the baking area and free Wi-Fi. The bakery will be open seven days a week from 7am to 4pm Monday-Saturday and on Sundays from 8am until 4pm.
