Bring Belle's Bagels Back to Eagle Rock/Highland Park
To those of you we were lucky enough to meet, we know it's been a while. And to those of you we never got to, it's time to change that here.
It's fair to say Belle's began with one person, when Nick set out to recreate a great bagel. Not long after we applied to the city as a two-person cottage food business, painted "Belle's Bagels" on a crooked slate sign, and started hosting booths at trade shows and local markets. With the help of a few dedicated friends we made it out of the house and surrendered our sleeping hours for our pop-up in the corner of a panaderia. Now, to take the next step and open a brick and mortar, we're asking for your help.
We see the shop as a place for people across neighborhoods, generations, and cultures to enjoy the bagel that we're all missing. Having grown up in Los Angeles, we never took for granted the access we have to different cultures and foods. And as much as we love seeing the sun rise, it isn't just for the love of making bagels that we want to open Belle's Bagels - it's the idea that we could be a part of what makes our this neighborhood, and our city, great. We're dedicated to being here, and we wrote this petition with the hopes that the feeling is mutual.
As a new, small business in a competitive area we've learned that Belle's can't be built without the support of the community. By signing below you lend your voice to ours in telling the neighborhood's landlords that Belle's Bagels already has a home here - we just need a roof.
Thank you for reading,
Nick & JD
