Friends, Detroiters, Bagelmen and women, lend us your ears,
A year ago, an idea sprouted to provide real, boiled and baked bagels in Detroit. It first grew quickly, feeding on excitement and innovation. But like any idea, it met reality and resistance. There were cloudy days when we asked ourselves, “Who starts a bagel shop nowadays?” and “What do we know about bagels?” We neglected the idea. We tried to forget about it. But friends, you did not let us forget. You praised our innovation, gave us your hard-earned dollars, and trumpeted our cause.
With renewed vigor, we marched forward. Who starts a bagel shop nowadays? Us! What do we know about bagels? A lot more than we did a year ago!
So friends, we thank you for your support over the past year.
We are happy to announce The DIB now has a future site located at the gateway to Corktown!
You wanted parking? It has a grass field. You wanted seating? It’s next to PJ’s. You wanted real, boiled and baked bagels? You’ll get bagel masterpieces!
Now, there’s still work to do to turn this property into Detroit’s bagel shop. But, the first piece is in place.
Bagels to the future!
