Bantam Bagel History

Bantam Bagels made their pitch to Shark Tank Season 6, Episode 13, in 2014, they struck a deal with Lori, for 25%, for $275,000 dollars.   Within eight months, Bantam Bagels made over $2 million in sales.   From there Bantam Bagels took their product to 32 Starbucks locations in their local NY area.   The cream cheese-filled bagels tested very well, and eventually expanded to over 400 Starbucks locations.  In 2018,  owners Nick and Elyse Oleksak sold their product to T. Marzetti Co. for $34 million dollars


Why air fry Bantam Bagels?

Why not?  Air frying usually faster and healthier than other options,  this case is no different.  Preheat, toss in the pretzels and set the timer, it is that simple. Bantam Bagels pair nicely with a cup of coffee, or your favorite tea.
