Bagel Jay's Closes Its Doors Forever

In 1976, Jay Gershberg and his brother brought NY Bagels to Buffalo and took the market by storm, serving customers at two dozen Bagel Bros locations throughout the region and outside the area, before the chain was purchased by Manhattan Bagel in 2000. Jay created the Bagel Jay's brand in 2001, opening in Williamsville, and later in North Buffalo. In 2016, Jay returned to Snyder, again serving his long time loyal customers. It's been a wonderful 47 year journey with the WNY Community.

The owner of Bagel Jay's, Jay Gershberg, told Channel 4 that its three locations have been sold to Bagel Brands, which plans keep them open as Bruegger’s Bagels. All three Bagel Jay's locations closed starting today to begin the transition.
