‘There just aren’t enough hours in the day’.
If only I had a bagel for every time I said that…
With so much to do and such little time to do it, it’s no wonder we always hunt for the easiest way to get the best experience. Yes we want fun, yes we want cheap, but most of all, we want easy.
Convenience is king, and Sam Pullano of Sammy’s New York Bagels believes it. And in the last 20 years, he’s built his business around it.
Originally hailing from New Jersey, Sammy’s Bagels unleashed its baked goodness on Columbus in 1994 and for 15 years built a reputation of serving delicious, fresh bagels. At one point, Sammy’s was dishing out bagels and muffins from three different Columbus locations, but with new demand and new opportunities, Sam decided to close the brick-and-mortar stores and shift gears to wholesale.
“We love Columbus. We started in retail, but as our wholesale business grew, we had to make a choice” he said.
His wholesale business grew so much, in fact, that you may be a Sammy’s fan without even knowing it. Those who frequent Ohio State’s campus would recognize bagels in the Wexner Medical Center, the Ohio Union, and Thompson library. While Cup O Joe, Staufs, Café Brioso, and Luck Bro’s Coffee House are among others who feature them around the city.
The real beauty of the Sammy’s Bagels business model isn’t the widespread wholesale takeover. It isn’t even the ability to offer homemade tuna salad and egg salad in addition to bagels, muffins, danishes, and apple cakes in their bakery.
The beauty is their ability to bring it all to your front door before you’ve even gotten out of bed in the morning.
“Doing home delivery was our way of providing customers our bagels, with added convenience,” he said.
If you give them a call or hop on over to their website before 3pm, you can watch your face light up like a kid on Christmas when you find your food waiting for you in the morning. No pick up. No worry. Just great bagels.
“It’s a little confusing for people at first to think that someone is going to be on their porch at 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning,” he said, “but when they see the bagels out there at 7 and they’re ready to get the kids to school, they’re satisfied.”
