Located right across the street from the Rollins Bookstore at 211 W. Fairbanks is a new edition to the Winter Park community: The Bagel Shop. With over 25 different flavors of coffee and 15 types of bagels available, this Massachusetts-based business is taking the community by storm. 

The Bagel Shop opened on Aug. 15. In its first month of opening, The Bagel Shop partnered with three different student organizations: The Student Support Foundation, WPRK,  and Kappa Delta sorority.  

According to the owner, Alex Tuccio, “we’re scheduled to have at least one student organization partnership a week for the foreseeable future. We commit 10% of the proceeds of sales that day to the organization to put back into whatever charity they choose to support.” 

Not only do partnerships benefit the organizations, but it also benefits the shop as well. “It allows us to give back through the support of a diverse collection of charities to as many causes as possible and it also allows us to be a meaningful community member in Winter Park,” said Tuccio.

The menu at The Bagel Shop includes 15 different types of bagels that can be used in a variety of both breakfast and lunch sandwiches, as well as with a variety of different schmears. There’s something for every bagel lover. 

In addition to a variety of bagels, the shop also prides itself on its coffee selection. In fact, that’s part of the reason why The Bagel Shop chose to open up a location in Winter Park. “Iced coffee is a big part of who we are as a business as it’s very popular in the Massachusetts summer-time, so when we were looking to expand [to] Florida, and its weather, made our decision easy,” said owner Tuccio. The shop offers iced coffee in flavors ranging from Almond Joy Mocha to Vanilla Hazelnut, and they also have cold brew available. 

Not only does The Bagel Shop’s menu make them a new stop for Winter Park coffee-lovers, but the community that they emphasize does as well. Community is at the heart of The Bagel Shop. “An objective that we have for the business is to treat our customers how we want to be treated; it’s a simple rule but also often forgotten in business,” said Tuccio.

For Rollins students, The Bagel Shop does take R-Card TarBUCK$ as payment, and is indefinitely offering a 15% discount to students with a Rollins ID. To keep up with The Bagel Shop you can follow them on Instagram (@thebagelshopwinterpark).
