This year at Kettlemans Bagel, we decided to switch things up for Father’s Day with two new gift ideas for Dad that he’ll really love. Something he will truly appreciate that’s not just another tie – this basket will take the guesswork out of Dad’s special day to show him you care. Our signature Kettlemans Bagel Basket is already wrapped and ready for pickup. Perfect for breakfast in the morning with your household, or a physically distant drop off to show him you care. Limited time only, while supplies last.

A portion of the proceeds from the purchase of each basket will be donated to Camp Misquah, an Ottawa based non-profit summer camp that provides a special residential camping experience for adults and children with special needs in a beautiful setting on Lac Bitobi near Gracefield, Quebec, about an hour north of Ottawa.

*baskets are subject to change slightly visually due to demand and colour availability.

Pride_Month_Kettlemans_Bagel_CANFAR

 

The month of June is an important one for the Kettlemans Bagel team since it allows us the chance to raise awareness and funds for an important cause. June marks Pride Month 🏳️‍🌈 in many cities around the world and this year, to show our support for the LGBTQ2S+ community, we have created the LGBT – Lettuce, Guacamole, Bacon, Tomato.

This exclusive menu item will be available in store, via our mobile app, and via Uber Eats (Ottawa only) for $7.99 for a limited time only.

10% of the sale of all LGBT sandwiches sold during the month of June will also be donated to the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR), a nationally recognized organization committed to eradicating the HIV epidemic within Canada.

CANFAR’s mission is to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Canada by funding innovative research, and awareness programs focused on increasing prevention, increasing testing, improving treatment and care, and ending HIV/AIDS stigma. Over its 30-year history, CANFAR has invested more than $22 million and awarded more than 500 grants across Canada in research addressing all aspects of HIV/AIDS. Read more

A Move To Take Out Only

Update: June 18th, 2020

We’ve opened our dining rooms at select locations, with enacted social distancing guidelines, as directed by Ottawa Public Health and the Provincial Government. 

One of our top priorities at Kettlemans Bagel is the health and safety of our guests and team members as we continue to take the lead from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Ottawa Public Health, and the World Health Organization. 

As a result, effective Monday March 16th, 2020, we’ve decided to transition all of our locations to take out only and have gone cashless. We will not be hosting customers in our dining areas until further notice. We’re proactively doing this to minimize the number of touch points in our public spaces and to follow the recommendations of social distancing from Ottawa Public Health, while simultaneously facilitating the ability of our customers to obtain food. 

As an alternative to visiting our stores, you can also order from us via Uber Eats, for both delivery and order ahead pickup. Read more

Ottawa bagel institution dedicates day to Jacob Gauthier and organizes fundraiser and donation to the Ottawa Candlelighters

Ottawa/August 10th, 2017 – The 24 hour a day operation that is Kettleman’s Bagel Co was briefly brought to a pause, emotionally at least, with a heartfelt message received from a local mother at the beginning of August. Carolyn Gauthier’s son Jacob was diagnosed with muscular cancer in mid 2016 and had recently celebrated one full year since his last chemo treatment. She reached out to the popular business with a moving story.

“Throughout treatment, as it happens to some, the taste of certain foods did not agree with him. Your plain bagels, though not always able to finish one in a day, and your karnatzel meat sticks were his main stays. Even now a year later, with all clear MRIs and X-rays, bagels and karnatzels are a great treat. So without knowing it, you helped my son through a very difficult time”, said Mrs Gauthier. Read more

Sorry…what!?

That’s exactly what Ottawa’s Mayor, Jim Watson, did yesterday when he bet New York mayor Bill De Blasio about who was going to win the upcoming playoff series between the Ottawa Senators and the New York Rangers. The Ottawa Citizen reported on the friendly and customary bet between these municipal politicians, yesterday. As per the mayor himself….

Should the Senators prevail in the best-of-seven series, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will wear a Senators jersey, send a whack of bagels up north and plant a maple tree somewhere in Gotham.
If the Rangers win, Watson will send Golden Palace egg rolls to New York City, wear a Rangers jersey and plant a native New York tree somewhere in the city.

So..couple of things to just get out there. We love Golden Palace egg rolls. They’re a great business and they have the best egg rolls in the city, in our opinion. They’re also very popularly served at the Canadian Tire Centre during hockey games. Read more

Facebook has firmly established itself as an important marketing platform for business. We’ve been using it as an important part of our efforts for several years. Worldwide, there are over 1.86 billion monthly active Facebook users (Facebook MAUs) which is a 17 percent increase year over year.  That’s kind of crazy.

This weekend….

This weekend, we hit an important milestone for Kettleman’s on the social network that Mark Zuckerberg built. We hit 30,000 likes and follows!

We didn’t want to hit this mark without providing some interesting stats about who makes up this group, so we created this infographic to give you a glimpse into what makes up this number of bagel lovers and fans of the Montreal style approach to making them.

The breakdown…

First – overwhelmingly – more women like and follow Kettleman’s Bagel Co. on Facebook than men. 64% of our likes and follows come from women compared to 34% of men. Way back in 2010, Forbes pointed out an interesting trend. Read more
