Looking for a new product to roll out to your customers? Bagels are a proven seller that can appeal to a wide range of demographics, and when you partner with a reputable bagel bakery, the ROI for bagels can be through the roof.
Not sure about selling bagels as part of your menu? Here are five reasons we’ve seen that shop-owners have hesitated to start selling bagels – and our answers for each one.
How am I supposed to add bagel making into my daily schedule?
You don’t have to! You can offer a full daily complement of bagels simply by placing an order with New Yorker Bagels and setting them out in your display case. No equipment or extra space or time needed – just your daily order, delivered fresh from our wholesale bakery.
How will I compete with the bagel shop down the street?
Chances are, their bagels aren’t New Yorker Bagels. Our bagels practically sell themselves, and you’ll quickly get a reputation for being the “better bagel” destination. Presumably you also sell other things, and can be a one stop shop for all of the morning or lunch crowd instead of just a bagel place.
How do I know which kinds of bagels to order?
While ascertaining the precise needs of your clientele will take a little trial and error, you’ll soon figure out their tastes. You can try offering specials – such as a bagel of the day and coffee for a discounted total price – and get your customers to try new things. Make note of who comes back in looking for more!
How will bagels be received by my customers?
Adding bagels to your menu can energize a whole new profit stream, and bring in new customers as well as increasing sales to your existing ones. Don’t forget to tout the healthy aspects of bagels and encourage buyers to try a new flavor or get a second one to take home.
Bagels are often seen as a “grown-up” food but can also be marketed to kids. Try to sell them to customers you know are on their way to or from a workout, on a break for lunch, who have a kid that might appreciate a blueberry or cinnamon raisin snack. Don’t forget businessmen and women who are in a rush to get to their job, and need a car-friendly breakfast or a snack they can stick in their desk if they know they’ll be working through lunch.
Bagels honestly sell themselves once you make it clear that yours are fresh, tasty, wholesome, and here to stay! Contact us for more information.
