BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The presence of a bagel place in Boca is about as unique as the presence of landscaping truck, but the opening of “The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Company” is unique enough to get our attention. For those who consider Boca to be New York’s sixth borough, the baking of bagels with “Brooklyn” water is a homecoming of sorts.
From our new friends at The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Company ®:
On Monday, May 12, 2014, The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.®, the pioneering bakery/cake restaurant that creates Brooklynized® water for use in its food, beverage and bakery products, continues its mission to “Brooklynize” the nation with the opening of a new location in Boca Raton, Florida. Located at 22191 Powerline Road, the restaurant’s operating hours are from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Known for its proprietary water treatment system called “Brooklyn Water Works,” The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® is revolutionizing the bagel-making process from start to finish by successfully replicating the natural composition of the water that flows through the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York into the homes of Brooklyn residents. This replication is accomplished by filtering local water down to its purest, most natural state, and then adding unique elements found only in the company’s water. As The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® proudly declares, “It’s all about the water!”®
This advanced technology enables The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® to transform the tap water in Boca Raton into Brooklynized® water – the key ingredient for creating real New York bagels. “Understanding that Boca Raton would be a natural fit for our gourmet bagels, The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® was actively seeking a location in this city for the past four years,” says Mike D’Angelo, Chief Operating Officer of The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® “We are thrilled to announce that The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® has secured two locations, the first opening on Powerline Road and a second restaurant planned for east Boca. The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® looks forward to becoming an integral part of this vibrant community and bringing its great product to the residents of Boca Raton who have been loyal followers of the restaurant brand.”
Believing that there are no shortcuts to creating quality products, The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® never deviates from the old-world artisan recipe for making its real New York bagels and uses only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients, including its proprietary water. This commitment to quality products is reflected throughout its entire bagel-making process, which can be viewed by guests at the restaurant’s see-through preparation and baking area, as each bagel is boiled in Brooklynized® water and then freshly baked in the old traditional New York way. “With just one bite, guests will quickly take notice that our gourmet bagels stay true to the traditional New York-style bagel. These freshly baked bagels are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, just like they would find in Brooklyn,” says D’Angelo.
In addition to freshly baked bagels, the made-to-order menu at The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® includes other New York favorites like breakfast sandwiches, over-stuffed bagelwiches, Scooper Melts®, and muffins. Coffee lovers will enjoy the restaurant’s signature Iced Coffee Cubsta®, which features ice cubes that made completely out of freshly roasted coffee, as well its coffee station that is equipped with all of the essential tools for customizing the perfect cup of coffee.
Since launching its first restaurant in 2009, The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® has witnessed tremendous growth and success. The Florida-based brand is now a national leader in the quick service industry with 19 restaurant locations in six states: California, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, and North Carolina. Two additional locations are slated to open in east Boca Raton and downtown Fort Lauderdale by the end of 2014, as The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.® continues its expansion across South Florida.
