Best Press Release Ever: Bagel Company Prepares 50K Bagels For Yom Kippur

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We appreciate that when Brooklyn Water Bagel says it’s prepping for massive bagel orders for Yom Kippur, it’s almost assuredly talking about the “breaking the fast” part of the Jewish holiday — as opposed to suggesting that folks are being contrary and spending the day eating bagels instead of fasting and atoning. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that).

But either way, it’s impressive that one company is preparing to sell 50,000 bagels for any holiday, let alone one that’s anti-food.

We don’t normally run press releases for companies verbatim, but we love the idea of celebrating what many consider to be the holiest day of the year eating carbs, so here Brooklyn Water Bagel — here’s your earned media.



The Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. has been the go-to source for bagels in South Florida (and beyond) for the past 11 years. In fact, last year the company sold nearly 50,000 bagels during the Yom Kippur holiday. This feat required more than 24 hours straight of mixing ingredients (including 5.5 tons of flour), forming the bagels and proofing them before boiling and baking at Brooklyn Water Bagel’s 18 locations.

“Our bagels are unlike anything available in South Florida,” said Derek Kirk, Vice President of Marketing for Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. “We use a 14-step proprietary water treatment process combined with authentic ingredients to create artisan bagels that remind our customers of the traditional New York bagel.”

To prepare for Yom Kippur on September 18-19, 2018, Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. is offering preorders in person and via phone. Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. offers Break-the-Fast Platters, including:

Brooklyn Dozen Bagels
