Bagelman is launching a flagship store along with a website and franchise opportunities.

The long-established bagel bakery is opening another store in Brighton train station - a different move from the company’s town centre stores. Open from early morning to evening, it will serve hot and cold freshly baked bagels, house specials, coffee, soft drinks and snacks as well as newest product bagel chips.

The interior is bright and colourful with contemporary industrial lamps and chrome fittings.

A franchise model is also launching to give entrepreneurs the chance to run their own Bagelman store.

“We worked with Brighton-based Chalk Architects to create a more contemporary feel,” said Anthony Prior, owner and director.

“In early discussions my main aim was to retain and enhance the idea that BAGELMAN is a fun place to visit as well as making amazing fresh food. When I heard that there was due to be a major refurbishment at the station I realised this would be the time to act - two and a half years later, here we are.”

The website has also been given a makeover and customers can now see the full menu online and will be able to order buffets and deliveries.
