Long Island Bagel Café uses time-tested recipes to produce authentic hand-rolled New York bagels. Every bagel is freshly boiled and baked to perfection every day. We are looking for franchise owners that are passionate, hands-on, and capable of handling high-volume business operations.
Numbers don’t lie and neither do New Yorkers when it comes to bagels. For nearly 20 years, LIBC has continued to thrive in the most competitive bagel market in the world. We handroll and ship bagels from our private commissary to be boiled, baked, and freshly dressed at each franchise location.
Proven Track Record
Since 2001, we have provided the community with incredible bagels, sandwiches, catering & service. Customers love us and we are often their first stop when back in town after being away from home. We continue to thrive in a competitive market while maintaining the highest level of quality and service.
We are committed to your success. With 8 corporate units and almost 2 decades of running high-volume stores, we have developed a foolproof system to help you successfully manage your business. Receive ongoing hands-on training from management on our products, marketing efforts, and processes.
Need help sourcing dough for our opportunity? We want to help our team members in any way possible. That’s why we maintain relationships with several third-party vendors that can help qualified buyers secure the funding they need to start this new venture.
We Make This Easy
From store design and buildout to serving the best bagel your customers have ever had and everything in between, we have you covered. We have condensed years of experience in opening stores and training operators into a streamlined system that positions franchisees for long-term success.
There is a noticeable lack of good bagels outside of New York. If we had a dollar for every time a customer complained to us about what gets passed off as NY bagels in other markets and how great our stores would do in other cities, we would have enough money to eat Lox every day of the week!
