Three years later, Einstein Bros. arrives

Einstein Bros. logoJust as Megabeth is preparing to leave Birmingham, AL, Einstein Bros. finally arrives in The Magic City. It just took a little longer than they thought it would…

The national bagel chain drew attention to itself more than three years ago when it announced  plans to offer franchising opportunities in Alabama and six other states.

The new location, the company’s first franchised location in metro Birmingham, is in fact the fourth one in the state – all located on college campuses (joining locations in Auburn, Mobile and Troy). This one is housed in UAB’s Learning Resource Center (located at 1714 9th Ave. South)

This UAB-produced video about the restaurant’s opening suggests that it fills a need for those working between the university’s student center and 20th Street South.

Einstein Bros. joins the national chain mix

Einstein Bros. LogoAdd Einstein Bros. Bagels to the list of national chains that have announced plans to put locations in Birmingham. It was announced as part of the company’s plan to offer franchising opportunities in seven states, the Birmingham Business Journal shared the news last week. They join Dunkin Donuts (story) and Baskin Robbins (story) in terms of recent announcements, not to mention several other chains that have opened in recent months throughout our metro area.

This map shows the states being targeted by the Lakewood, CO-based company. Thanks to Megabeth for pointing it out.

This news leads us to a question: What other retail chains would you like to see come to Birmingham? (question edited to clarify meaning)
