December 8, 2014

NY Bagel Cafe & Deli franchise:  How many have closed?

NY Bagel Cafe logoHow many have debranded and tried to make it independently?

How many have sued the founder Joe Smith and his franchise salesman Dennis Mason aka Ken Mason aka Keith Samuels?

On 12/3/13, there appeared to be 8 locations open, and at least 27 New York Bagel Cafe & Deli franchise locations that had debranded and/or closed.

On 5/13/14 it appeared that only 5 were open, and more than 30 have debranded and/or closed.

We’ve found 12 locations that were touted as “Coming Soon” that apparently never opened.  Non-refundable franchise fees may have been collected for these and other locations.

There have been at least 2 lawsuits by NY Bagel Café franchisees alleging fraud and deceptive sales tactics by Joe Smith, Dennis Mason and New York Bagel Enterprises, Inc.

The list below has been compiled from the company website and other public sources, and is very much a work in progress.

Please help us correct and maintain the list of franchise openings and closings by sharing additional information, locations, closing dates, etc. in the comment section below.
