Big O Bagels

The Big O Bagels franchise is an Oregon-based bagel brand with several locations. The idea behind the bagel concept is to be an alternative to low-quality fast food. With four successful locations and thousands of customers, the brand is looking to expand with more storefront locations owned and operated by entrepreneurial franchise partners. The typical location should be at least 1,000 square feet and does well in strip malls and other high traffic locations. Since the franchisor will provide you will the support and training you need to succeed, you don't necessarily need prior experience to successfully run the franchise. The brand's simple model and delicious product have lead to two decades of growth.
