About Bantam Bagels

Different than any other New York bagel, these bite-sized wonders known as "Bantams," come stuffed with cream cheese already inside, making Bantam Bagels easy to eat on the go and perfect for anyone from kids to adults. Since opening their shop in Manhattan’s Bleecker Street, Bantam Bagels have become an NYC staple, changing the way New Yorkers enjoy one of their most iconic foods: the bagel. Bursting out of the city limits, the brand is excited to share their stuffed delights with everyone looking for an authentic bite of New York’s finest, wherever they are!

Husband and wife team, Nick and Elyse Oleksak, are the owners and founders of Bantam Bagels, and are recognized entrepreneurs from ABC’s Shark Tank. “Everyone knows New Yorkers love their bagels and that is a large part of why we decided to start our business here,” said Nick Oleksak. “We knew it would be no small task changing the way New Yorkers consumed their beloved bagel, but everyone knows that if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere,” added Elyse. Now tasked with feeding bagel lovers from coast to coast, each and every Bantam Bagel is still made in Brooklyn NY, where the concept first emerged, and where the key ingredient – New York City tap water – is plentiful.

Momentum continues

National Starbucks Launch September 6: After testing Bantam Bagels in select Starbucks® locations, Bantam Bagels is proud to announce that they will be available in more than 7,000 company-operated Starbucks locations across the United States.

“Starbucks is committed to supporting local entrepreneurs, and has supported our efforts to grow and develop our brand. We are proud to provide customers with a unique, quality product in Starbucks locations,” said Elyse Oleksak. “The expansion within Starbucks is literally a dream come true for us,” added Nick Oleksak.
