Bagel Joy originated in 2020 as a hunt for good bagels. owners David, Michelle, and Caleb Picard after seeking a fresh, quality bagel decided to take it upon themselves to figure out a recipe of their own.
As recipe testing began, the house became quickly overwhelmed with bagels. It became obvious that the best place for all the excess would be neighbors and community members. Bagel Joy started on the Nextdoor app with the only requirement to get fresh bagels being a donation receipt to a local foodbank.
The next step in Bagel Joy's growth would be finding ourselves in a Commercial kitchen with the equipment, permits, and recipe to start producing on a larger scale. Soon after Bagel Joy would be at farmers markets working to spread good bagels to Loudoun, Fairfax, and Prince William County.
After three years of working for the weekends, Bagel Joy has finally purchased a location! With a buildout underway we are planning to open our doors to the public in early 2024! We are looking forward to being able to provide fresh bagels every day for all to enjoy! To stay up to date with our journey as it unfolds follow us on Instagram and Facebook or just come visit us!
