For a quick breakfast—and a darn good cup of coffee—you’re not alone if Einstein Bros.’ Bagels is your favorite restaurant choice. This fast-casual chain serves a variety of bagels, sandwiches, and specialty coffee drinks for every craving. Since local stores bake their bagels fresh every four hours (beginning at 2:00 A.M.), it’s no wonder their many flavors, from chocolate chip to jalapeño cheddar, come out soft and chewy around the clock.
At CaterSquad, we’re proud to call Einstein Bros.’ Bagels one of our national partners. Here’s an overview of the company’s history, plus what you can expect from a catered meal from Einstein Bros.
The big question is, of course: Are there really a pair of spectacled brothers named Einstein, as in the company’s memorable logo? We’re sorry to burst this bubble, but no—Melvin and Elmo (yes, they have names) are fictional characters.
However, the folks who originally founded Einstein Bros are quite real. In 1995, the Boston Market restaurant group formed the Einstein and Noah Corporation as a way to reach consumers looking for restaurant breakfast foods. The “Noah” in this name was for Noah Alper, a restauranteur in Berkeley, California who took part in the original concept. The company now operates 720 bagel shops throughout the U.S. and is headquartered in Colorado.
