Max’s Story-Why would a BAGEL STORE Buy Davidovich Par Baked Bagels?

Owning a Bagel Store Outside NYC Can Be Challenging

September 3, 2018 NYC–  Max dreamt his whole life of owning his own business.   It is as American a concept as Ice Cream on Apple Pie.  Now Max has done it.   After moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico he decided it’s time to open a real bagel store, like the one he worked for in New York City.

His business plan- give people a touch of NYC in New Mexico. Max knew what he was doing. He knew how to mix the dough, how to roll the bagels, how to water boil, and bake them.  

 

People will flock to my little piece of the Big Apple in the West,” Max Boasted.

What Max didn’t count on was that despite all of his knowledge and efforts the bagels just don’t come out like they did in NYC.   They are good bagels.   They are made right, but there is something missing.  They don’t have that authentic crispness outside and chewy interior.  Where did Max fail?

HE DIDN’T.

The truth is NYC is the King of Bagels for a reason.  Even the best bagel makers, like Max, can’t duplicate NYC’s finest bagels in places where they don’t have access to NYC’s water and NYC’s weather conditions.  New Mexico is No exception.

Max Works 16-17 Hour Work Days With Mixed Results

To make matters worse Max is getting to work at 1AM to start the laborious process of creating  his bagels.   Bagels are labor intensive.   He has the job of measuring, mixing, cutting the dough, hand rolling, boiling, baking, and selling all by himself.    Some nights he stays until 7PM, or later, just to catch a few hours of sleep and start the whole process all over again.  How long can one person, or one family, sustain that kind of a grueling schedule?

What is an entrepreneur, like Max, to do?   THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY.

Well there is a real solution to give Max, and other Bagel Store owners, access to NYC’s finest bagels right in New Mexico, or anywhere in the world, and to give him back his life again.  That solution is the Davidovich Par Baked Solution.

With Davidovich’s Par Baked Bagel program Max can eliminate all of the ingredient costs, as well as the mixing, the cutting, the rolling, the proofing, the boiling, the seeding and most of the baking.  In a matter of less than one hour he can serve his customers the very best NYC has to offer-bagels made in NYC, with NYC’s water and in NYC’s environment but “baked off” in his very own facility for just a few minutes.   THIS IS A WIN-WIN!

Max’s customers get the authentic NYC Bagel and he gets to save himself the time and back breaking labor of real bagel making and even sleep for an additional 5 hours.  With Davidovich as his partner Max can’t lose. Neither can you.

Davidovich Fills the “Black & White Cookie Void” Left By Glaser’s Bakery’s Closing

July 30, 2018 NYC– After 116 years of serving NYC and the surrounding area with some of the most iconic Black & White Cookies in the world, Glaser’s Bakery closed for good last week.

This closure left a gaping void for the generations of New Yorkers whose guilty pleasures included these equally-balanced, fondant covered gems.   For some it meant the age-old question of, “Which is superior- the chocolate or vanilla?” might never be answered.  For others it was a more telling sign of the death of one of the many things that was a signature NYC product for ages.

The Famous Davidovich Black & White Cookies- made in the tradition of the greats, like Glaser’s Bakery

Now, thanks to the world famous Davidovich Bakery New Yorkers need suffer no more.   Davidovich, in the tradition of Glaser’s and other fine Artisan bakeries, has continued to make its famous, Black & White Cookies, by hand, using only the finest ingredients.

While Glaser’s may be gone, their cookies will live on fondly in our hearts.  Be sure to stop by any Davidovich Bakery location, or reseller today, and ask for your Davidovich Black & White Cookie.

As the film “Always at The Carlyle” premiered in NYC I was so excited to be a premiere provider of Davidovich Bagels, muffins, French pastry and more to their A-list guests. If it’s good enough for The Carlyle isn’t it good enough for your guests???
