Congratulations Bill Sutherland, Shirley Johnson and James Gilderdale!
A great product mixed with inspirational customer service and a dollop of fun is a recipe for business success.
Customer Jo Malcolm says Bagel Love in central Auckland has that winning combination.
"I go to the gym near the bagel shop in Wellesley Street in the city.
They are always happy to open the door at early hours to give me bagels for my little daughter who can't get enough of them.
They chat with everyone and definitely share the love!
Last week I popped in and the bagels were not quite ready.
Rather than make me go home empty handed, they made me a coffee, gave me four perfectly good bagels from the day before for free and promised fresh bagels same time the next day.
As a new business they are struggling to keep up with demand but never once do I leave feeling rushed or undervalued.
Awesome product and awesome service"
In the company's own words "we build our bagels with love & fresh ingredients so you can enjoy your bagel anytime, anywhere. We are the best bagel bakery in New Zealand. Great coffee, great bagels, great people ....come visit us soon."
Congratulations to Bagel Love: A worthy winner of a KiaOraMai Awesome Service Award.
