Bruegger’s History

When Nord Brue and Mike Dressell started Bruegger’s in 1983, they actually founded the retail bagel concept. Up until that point, bagels were considered mostly an ethnic food and were not known much outside of New York. At that time, less than one-third of Americans had ever tasted a bagel!

From their home base in Burlington, Vermont, Brue and Dressell pioneered a new concept that expanded the traditional bagel bakery into a quick service bakery with premium specialty cream cheeses, custom-made sandwiches, signature soups and exceptional coffee. They worked with a professional bagel baker from New York City for nearly two and a half years to perfect their recipe and baking process.

In 2003, Bruegger’s welcomed new ownership and expanded beyond bagels into breads, wraps and other lunchtime menu items, and began updating bakeries to reflect the welcoming feel of a New England farmhouse-inspired bakery-café that Bruegger’s has evolved into.

Today, over 30 years after the first Bruegger’s opened in Troy, New York, there are over 300 Bruegger’s bakeries in 26 states, the District of Columbia and Canada, with more on the way!
