The Great American Bagel is an award-winning bagel bakery and deli concept specializing in big, fresh bagels mixed from scratch and steam-baked on premises daily. Since 1987, we have been using only the finest ingredients, offering a delicious array of fresh menu items served in a clean and friendly neighborhood setting.

Whether it's our homemade, hand-packed cream cheese varieties, made-to-order deli sandwiches or our signature line of Tomazzo® pizza bagels, our selections appeal to appetites of all sizes. Savory soups and fresh salads, in addition to gourmet coffees, juices and teas, have earned their place on our menu as well. Our unique holiday shapes and seasonal flavors have become landmark items. Extensive catering options make entertaining a breeze for corporate meetings, events and parties.

Our privately held, Westmont, IL-based company currently has 52 locations in 12 states. The Great Canadian Bagel, our affiliate, maintains 91 units across Canada, and one in Dublin, Ireland. Our concept is easily adaptable to traditional storefront locations as well as non-traditional sites such as airports, universities, shopping centers and tollway plazas.

We're always looking for strong operators to uphold and extend our long-standing reputation for great food, good service and a comfortable environment. If you love our bagels, like our concept and think you would enjoy the challenges (and rewards) of franchising, The Great American Bagel would love to hear from you!
