13 Myths About EINSTEIN BAGELS

Einstein Bagels have created their own network. Einstein Bagels’ menu is also very vast. Say goodbye to stale bagels and say hello to EINSTEIN BAGELS! Got a question? We’ve got the answer.

1. Einstein Bagels use preservatives in their recipe. 

Einstein bagels are preservative free because they’re never frozen, baked fresh daily at our bakeries, and stored for about three hours before serving.

2. All of your outlets are taken up by hanging out with other Einsteins in the back of the store all day long.

No, we actually like this one because we believe that how we treat each other is just as important as how we make our bagels. Our philosophy is “No Einsteins left behind.” We strive to provide an equitable and supportive working environment for associates and our community. We encourage team spirit by celebrating success and fostering a positive work environment. The culture of the Einstein Bagel Co. workplace is the key to our success. We believe that there’s no place like home so we do our very best to create a workplace that feels like one!

3. That you must be part of an exclusive club to work in your stores.

We welcome all walks of life at the Einstein Bagel Co. There are no requirements to work at Einstein. We don’t discriminate against race, creed, sexual orientation, gender or disability. We embrace the diversity of our employees by providing opportunities for growth and learning.

4. That you have to be crazy to work in a place that makes bagels.

We’re a business, not a lifestyle choice! We believe that if you have the passion and drive to succeed, then you can do anything! Our managers are all people first, which means we understand that working full-time as part of an Einstein family is challenging and rewarding at the same time. It takes determination, commitment and dedication to work hard on your own as well as with your team. Our managers are critical to our success because they work so closely with their teams to create a warm and welcoming environment for our customers.

5. The bagels at Einstein are frozen.

We make all of our bagels fresh daily using no preservatives. Nothing is ever frozen! You’ll never find any of your favorites in the freezer case, either. We bake everything from scratch and always onsite, which means our bagels (and bialys!) taste as good as they smell.

6. That Einstein Bagels only serve coffee and sandwiches.

We serve DELICIOUS bagels, bialys and lox sandwiches at Einstein Bagels! Not only do we offer breakfast staples like egg, cheese and sausage sandwiches, but our lunchtime muffins are so awesome that they’ve been featured in Bon Appetit magazine.

7. That the bagel is a dying food culture.

The bagel has never been more popular in its history! Despite what some people may think, bagels are still very much a part of mainstream culture. In fact, the Pew Research Center for People and the Press reports that Americans waste about $4.4 billion each year on stale bagels. That’s not good!

9. Starting of The Einstein Bagel Co. 

The Einstein Bagel Co. was started by four guys who wanted to start their own business with nothing but an idea and cash – much like you did many years ago.

The Einstein Bagel Co. has been in business since 2006, but before 2007 our founders had been working together as a team in the bagel business for over 20 years. Like many companies we’ve been on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, but hope springs eternal, which is why we’re still here fighting!

10. That you only have one choice of bagels at Einstein. 

The truth is that there are many delicious choices to be found at Einstein Bagels. In fact there are over a dozen different kinds of bagels, bialys and egg sandwiches.

11.That Einstein is just another word for genius.

The word Einstein (pronounced “EIN-steen”) means genius in German, which is where our name comes from. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, “Einstein” was the nickname of a very smart man from Germany known around the world for his intellect. These days, many people associate brilliance with eccentricity and wearing flannel shirts with pocket protectors. But that’s not the case at Einstein Bagels.

12. That Einstein recognizes your genius.

People often ask us if we offer our employees any sort of recognition for their respective skills and talents, which is why we now have a job board at Einstein! It’s easy to apply for a job at Einstein and we only hire the best people! Your resume speaks for itself, so why not let it call out your many talents? The best part about working at Einstein is that you never quite know what kind of job you’ll get. We’ve had everything from janitors, cashiers and baking staff to manager, assistant manager and assistant baker. The one word that describes the job you get varies from position to position. One thing is for sure, at Einstein we never get bored!

13. That Einstein only hires people who can work crazy hard.

It’s true, we do want people who are passionate about bagels and willing to work hard. This is a business that thrives on team spirit and a positive work environment. Einstein Bagels values the brilliant minds of our associates for their talents, drive and passion for bagels! You can be brilliant and still have a sense of humor or be quirky with your hair color (because we all have one or two crazy quirks) but you must also love the bagel business. If you’re upbeat, energetic and ready to learn, then Einstein is the place for you!

Conclusion

Einstein Bagels believes in a positive work environment, decent pay and good food for our employees.
