Following the successful opening of the first of many locations in the GTA, Kettlemans Bagel is now bringing our Montreal bagel to our guests in an entirely new way. Partnering with delivery company Trexity, guests can now subscribe for a recurring order of sesame and / or everything bagels that are delivered to their doorstep. This new service can repeat pre-determined orders every 7, 14 and 30 days. 

The new service will launch its pilot in Ottawa, with subscriptions available to surrounding areas that haven’t had a local Kettlemans Bagel location to call their own. The service will scale up to the GTA in the coming months, just in time to support the second Toronto location opening.

Fun Facts About Bagels

  • According to popular belief, bagels date back all the way to 1783, and were created in honor of King John III Sobieski of Poland. An Austrian baker create the first bagels in the shape of a stirrup after the famous horseman protected the people of Austria from Turkish invaders. He named after the Austrian work for stirrup, beugel. As the beugel became more and more popular throughout Eastern Europe, the bagel was transformed into what we see today, a circular shape with a hole in the middle.
