Beach Bagels Open On Oleander

Nearly a year after its anticipated opening, Beach Bagels has opened the doors to a second location at 5906 Oleander Drive.
 
Unforeseen structural issues led to construction delays, said owner Tony DiNorcia, who took over the lease of the space when Ken’s Bagels owner Wendell Willey announced he would not be renewing the lease last spring. DiNorcia had hoped to open before the end of last summer.
 
DiNorcia said the main reason for opening a second location was to alleviate some of the crowding at the Wrightsville Avenue shop. A stopping point for many on their way to the beach, customers often experienced longer than ideal wait times.
 
“We couldn’t toast the bagels or cook the eggs any faster,” said DiNorcia. “The only real option was to create another location to better serve our customers.”
 
DiNorcia is hopeful that the Seagate area location, which is larger by approximately 300 square feet and includes an outdoor patio, will help spread out his customer base, making it easier to serve more customers more efficiently at both locations.
 
Bagels are made fresh daily in the traditional method of boiling first, then baking, and breakfast and lunch are served all day, every day at both locations. For now the menus are the same, though each location will run different weekly specials and the Seagate shop may see some new menu items down the road, according to DiNorcia.
 
Beach Bagels is located at 7220 Wrightsville Avenue and 5906 Oleander Drive. Both locations are open seven days a week from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
