Join our MISTER BAGEL family! Over the past 40 years, Mister Bagel has been voted "BEST BAGEL" in Portland, Maine! Owning a Mister Bagel store combines the freedom of being your own boss with the security of being part of a team that cares about your future. Once your eligibility has been approved by Mister Bagel's team, you'll be ready to get started on your own Mister Bagel location.

To acquire a Mister Bagel store location or a satellite (bagels not baked on site) location you must meet a few requirements. A satellite location in Maine must have an average size of 1500-2000 square feet. It should be within one hour drive from Portland.

Mister Bagel takes pride in training all managers and counter staff to produce and serve the perfect bagel. The two week extensive training program at our prototype store will teach you and your staff all there is to know about the bagel business. In addition, the Mister Bagel Coordinator will be with you during your pre-opening and opening week at your store. When we are ready to leave, you will not only look professional, but will BE professional!!
