On last week’s snowy Monday, Bruegger’s Bagels reopened its new store, now co-branded with Jamba Juice, in the Bedford Marketplace.
The event was attended by Bedford officials, representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, and dozens of invited residents who came for lunch after the ceremony.
“The Town is pleased to see Bruegger’s Bagels back in the Marketplace with the welcome addition of Jamba Juice,” said Alyssa Sandoval, Bedford’s Economic Development Coordinator. “Their new space is light, bright, and airy, and the outdoor patio will be a nice feature when the weather turns milder.
Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Maureen Sullivan added, “Bruegger’s has always been a great community partner and we look forward to continuing to support them as one of our Bedford businesses.”
According to the Bruegger’s Bagel/Jamba Juice opening ceremony press release, the partnership combines the best of both brands under one roof, allowing guests to enjoy Bruegger’s Bagels’ fresh-baked bagels, 100 percent made-in-Vermont cream cheese, sandwiches, soups and salads alongside fresh-squeezed juices, signature smoothies and energy bowls from Jamba Juice.
Several new menu items are on the menu, including seasonal cream cheese mix-ins, New York-style coffeecake, Cheesecake Brownies and Greek Yogurt Blueberry Muffins. New coffee offerings include premium Rainforest Alliance Certified coffees, seasonal single-origin pour-over coffees, specialty espresso beverages and organic 20-hour cold brew coffee.
The store will be open from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
