We now have Flagels! That’s right; we can eliminate the hole in our bagels; all you have to do is ask. No more catsup, mustard, mayo, egg yolk, whatever, leaking out the hole in your sandwich.

Remember, we’re celebrating this year by including every regular customer in our bonus program, not just those buying 2 dozen or more at a time. So…

If, over the next twelve months, you place a regular order (same amount, same size) every sixth order will be free. If you order a dozen bagels every week, the sixth order is free. If you order five 100 gram bagels once a month, the sixth order is free.
