Imagine starting your morning with a nice, hot bagel from New York. This can now be the reality of your morning with Boro Bagel Company. Britt Hendrix, a Statesboro local, saw a need in his town and created a solution. Hendrix said what inspired him the most was the blatant need for a breakfast and lunch spot in the town. “A lot of places are closed on Mondays so there is a big need for a lunch place.” 

Boro Bagel Company will specialize in various bagels, bagel sandwiches, and ice cream; Hendrix plans to add to the menu later. The store is set to open on Friday, September 8, 2023, but is subject to change.

Out of all the products he carries, Hendrix says his favorite thing to sell is personality. “When customers become regulars it is an exciting thing and I’d love to see that here at Boro Bagel Company.” Allen Muldrew, Executive Director for Downtown Statesboro Development Authority, spoke on the new bagel place and its atmosphere. “Downtown has a very walkable environment, and now you don’t have to get in your car to enjoy a delicious sandwich on your lunch break.” 

The company motto is “Live Tastefully” because Hendrix wanted to create a space that was a tasteful and respectful atmosphere. “Creating a business casual place to take a break from all the hustle and bustle of the workday” 

Hendrix wanted to create a historical but also an urban location with Boro Bagel Company. There are new aspects of his store but also antique aspects as well to create the perfect mix of new and old to represent the history and growth downtown.

Boro Bagel Company will be open from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday . To stay updated on the company’s news, be sure to check out their FaceBook and Instagram “BoroBagelCompany”.
