Our Story

How did a boy from Southern California who married a girl from the South end up making Artisan Bagels? It all happened almost by accident. I suppose with the last name of Nagel it must have been our destiny.

“Tasty bagels, made fresh daily.”

It all started when Rich’s day job had him traveling to places like Manhattan, New Jersey and Boston where he was able to experience amazing fresh bagels every day. When he would come home to Georgia there were no good bagels to be found! One day in June of 2019, he was sitting with his wife Kelly and said “I wonder if I could make a good bagel?”

His first batch was horrible

It wasn’t even edible. That turned out to be the best thing that could have happened because right then Rich decided he would not let the bagel defeat him! He worked and researched and baked and baked again until he came up with the amazing Nagel’s Bagel.

Catering & Events

During that time the Nagel’s were giving their bagels to friends and family to try for much needed feedback. One of those friends decided it was time to share Nagel’s Bagels with the world and she entered them into the local Farmer’s Market. Low and behold Nagel’s Bagels got accepted! It took Rich and Kelly 6 hours to bake 12 dozen bagels for the first market and they sold out within an hour. From then until now the company has grown from a small hobby to full grown business serving the North Georgia community and expanding every day.

The Nagel’s are so grateful for all the love and support they have been given along the way and can’t wait to see what’s next for Nagel’s Bagels.
