Our Story

In 2021, Mark and Lori Kochendorfer acquired Everything Bagels, located in Eastgate, Ohio, and embarked on a mission to revitalize and grow the beloved brand. At the time of acquisition, Everything Bagels was already a well-established favorite among bagel enthusiasts, founded in 2008 and known for their fresh, and delectable bagels. However, the new owners saw an opportunity to take the business to new heights, expanding its reach and enhancing the customer experience. 

The transition was not without challenges, as the new owners had to balance honoring the traditions of the original business with their own vision for growth and innovation. However, they were committed to building upon the strong foundation laid by the previous owners and bringing Everything Bagels to even greater heights.


Today, Everything Bagels has grown into a thriving brand, now with two locations, that maintains a loyal following and a reputation for enriching the community it serves. While the business has evolved under new ownership, it remains true to its roots and continues to offer the same delicious, handcrafted bagels that have earned it a place in the hearts of bagel lovers everywhere.

Lori and Mark are proud to continue the legacy of Everything Bagels and remain committed to delivering the best bagels and customer experience possible. We look forward to serving our customers for years to come and building upon the traditions that have made Everything Bagels a beloved institution.
