NYC Bagel Franchise announced Tuesday it has signed a Multi-Unit franchise agreement with operator KKR Group to expand in the Tampa/Clearwater area and other markets across the west coast of Florida. KKR Group plans to open additional units in Fort Meyers and the Naples market.
“Since we announced our brand expansion for Florida, we’ve been working hard to identify the right franchisees that can help our brand expand in key markets across the state,” says Joe Smith, president of NYC Bagel Franchise. “KKR has a long history of success with its other brands and we know they are the right partner that will help us establish a deeper presence in Florida. We welcome KKR to the NYC Bagel Franchise family and look forward to their success.”
“We’ve been watching NYC Bagel and Sandwich Shop growth over the years very closely. Once we learned of the new store design, menu innovation and enhanced technology, we were sold on becoming NYC Bagel franchisees,” adds KKR. “Hassan and I are honored to become part of this growing family and we know we’ve selected ideal markets for this brand. Fresh Baked Bagels, Sandwiches and bites are perfect for the community. We’re excited to provide the area with great healthy food.”
NYC Bagel Franchise is aggressively rolling out its new store design and has franchise opportunities available throughout several key markets. The Nationwide brand is actively seeking individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit who possess enthusiasm about the brand, marketing skills and the ability to manage a strong team.
