The MorningSide Bagel Story
In 2006 Roxane & David Tackett quit their desk jobs to begin MorningSide Bagels after the owner of their favorite bagel place, New York Bagel, decided to close its doors. A love for the New York-style fresh boiled bagels inspired their leap into the bagel making business.
While their adventure ended in April 2018, it has just begun for the new owner, Robyn Edwards. After an extensive career in marketing and public relations, Robyn decided it was time for a change. So when she saw that MSB was being sold, she thought -- why not bagel making?
After some remodeling, months of practicing making bagels, and with help from family, friends, and former co-workers, the OPEN sign was officially turned on December 3, 2018.
We're very fortunate to have many awesome, talented individuals who help us keep the bagels coming every day! The team includes Daysi (our baker), Maurice, Mechelle, Tucker, Brett, Olivia, Rosy, and Taylor. We also have our favorite college students -- Annie, Sealie, and Simon -- who help out whenever they are in town during a school break.
