Established in 2016, and tucked away in a unique spot at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds is this NY inspired eatery.

Watch the video to get some idea of what Frankie’s Bagels is all about!

The mission: To finally provide Humboldt County with classic, NY style bagels, made the traditional way: Hand-shaped, boiled and baked. This east coast food hub not only provides nostalgic eats, but also a community of people wanting new culinary experiences and quality food service.

Frankie’s Bagels is currently operating 3 days a week, and is using an online ordering system. Customers see the menu for the day, order their items and come pick them up onsite at the Redwood Acres Location. Even with only 3 days a week of service, this business is still thriving.

The Menu includes a wide range of much-loved east coast favorites from the 19 different bagel flavors to the NY Cheesecake, the variety and rotating menu keeps it interesting, while the amazing baked goods keep customers coming back again and again. Frankie’s Bagels also has 5 house cream cheese blends as well as vegan options, Bagel Dogs, Bialys and sweets such as Italian Rainbow Cookies and Babka. The menu regularly features a variety of specials and Sunday is focused on selling only doughnuts with 5 different flavors offered regularly.

The sale of this much loved Bagel shop includes the Logo/Branding, Custom Website, POS System/iPad, Complete Menu and Recipes, Training/Consulting, Customer lists/contacts, Vendor Lists as well as the option to assume the current lease for the kitchen space, outdoor area and potential garden spot.

Prior to Covid, Frankie’s bagels also had a lucrative wholesale business, supplying 10 different eateries and supermarkets with their products for resale. These businesses included Humboldt Cider Co, Siren’s Song Tavern, Big Blue Cafe, Northtown Coffee, Beachcomber, Richard’s Goat Tavern, Dead Reckoning, T’s Cafe, Murphy’s Markets and Wildberries. These wholesale accounts averaged around $10k annually and were only the beginning of the opportunities available for wholesale expansion.

Despite lockdown restrictions and a pause on wholesale products, Frankie’s NY Bagels has nearly doubled their net income in 2020. This demonstrates that in it’s short time, this culinary hot spot has become a go-to stop for the foodies of Humboldt. The truth is in the reviews.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
