Bagel Boss has closed on 14th Street

The Bagel Boss at 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue apparently won't be reopening. 

The address has been removed from the Bagel Boss website, and Google lists them as "permanently closed." 

This comes after a temporary closure last October. At the time, BB management told us, "The location is temporarily closed due to gas and electric problems. We hope to open back up before the end of December!" The outpost never reopened, and it eventually showed up on real-estate listings

On Saturday, a reader saw the gate open for the first time in months ... and the interior mainly looked cleaned out...
Bagel Boss had only just opened here last July

The company, founded in 1975, has 14 locations in NYC and on Long Island. An outpost at 55 E. Houston St. (at Mott) also debuted last year. The store at 263 First Ave. remains in business.

14th Street outpost of Bagel Boss likely closed through the end of the year

Photo Monday by Jefferson Siegel 

The Bagel Boss at 238 E. 14th St. has not been open in recent days... and passersby note that the display cases are empty — a surprising discovery given that this outpost between Second Avenue and Third Avenue just opened in late July

According to a message to EVG from Bagel Boss: "The location is temporarily closed due to gas and electric problems. We hope to open back up before the end of December!"

Bagel Boss, founded in 1975, has 15-plus locations in NYC and on Long Island. A location at 55 E. Houston St. (at Mott) also recently debuted.

New Bagel Boss location now with Bagel Boss signage

Bagel Boss signage/branding is up now on 55 E. Houston St. at Mott Street (the former Oddfellows space).

This will be one of two new BBs in the neighborhood (first reported here). There's also one coming to 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, though no sign of signage there just yet. Both are expected to open this summer.

The owners of Bagel Boss recently discussed their expansion plans with Forbes:
Founder Adam Rosner explains that "At the beginning (of the pandemic), we got our teeth kicked in like the majority of New York City. We innovated, did a lot of shipping and now see a little spark in walking traffic."

Andrew Hazen, a partner, says it opted to expand during a pandemic because "We believe in the future of New York City, and we felt now is the perfect time to invest in it while rents are currently tenant-friendly."

In fact, Rosner asserts that he was able to secure two long-term leases in Manhattan with rents that were 35 percent to 40 percent below previous market levels.

Another take on the coming-soon Bagel Boss signage

Back on March 22, we reported that Bagel Boss was opening an outpost at 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue... the signage, though, got tangled up, and it was difficult to read passing by... and eventually someone just took it down...
But! As the top photo shows, the signage is securely in place... at the site of old-timer City Gourmet Cafe, which closed during the pandemic.  

And as noted on March 22, there's also a Bagel Boss coming soon to 55 E. Houston St. at Mott Street... in the former Oddfellows space.

Bagel Boss to preside in storefronts on 14th Street, East Houston

Bagel Boss is opening two new outposts in the neighborhood. 

There's now BB signage up on the gate at 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue...
They take over from old-timer City Gourmet Cafe, which closed during the pandemic.  

Look for another Bagel Boss coming soon to 55 E. Houston St. at Mott Street... in the former Oddfellows space...
