The Bagel Bar


The Bagel Bar was founded by Raymond Cowzer in response to a growing demand by working professionals for a healthier option to the standard sandwich, while incorporating a more international taste to the range of fillings and sauces used in creating our unique signature bagel sandwiches.

Since opening their doors on Poolbeg Street, Dublin, Ireland in 2001, demand for The Bagel Bar product has been so great that they have expanded the business and currently operate worldwide franchised stores. We believe this reflects the high quality and standards of the products and continued commitment to customer service.

The Bagel Bar Franchise is a wholly owned Irish company which operates company owned and franchised stores. The basic concept of The Bagel Bar is to offer a more sophisticated breakfast, bagels, lunch time, desserts, cold and hot beverages, where people can enjoy excellent quality food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. We pride ourselves on our customer service and have built a reputation as an eatery that offers a varied menu with excellent standards.

The work in developing the business has been recognized by The Irish Franchise Association, winning “Franchise Person of the Year” (Ray Cowzer) in 2004 followed by “Best Emerging Franchise” in 2005.
