In stark contrast, there are some things in which choosing a favorite is immediate. Favorite number? Four. Favorite season? Fall. Favorite bagel? Bruegger's Bagels, definitely Bruegger's!
The first to bring New York-style bagels to neighborhoods across America, Bruegger's Bagels began in 1983 and can now be found in more than 275 locations across North America.
As well as being known for their amazing bagels baked fresh throughout the day, Bruegger's also offers its guests a variety of menu items that includes fresh-baked breads, proprietary Vermont cream cheese varieties, custom-roasted coffee, breakfast sandwiches, garden-fresh salads, hearty soups, lunch sandwiches, panini and desserts, seasonal and geographical specialties, and more.
My mouth is watering just thinking about biting into any one of those soft, chewy bagels right now... mmmm!
But Bruegger's Bagels does more than just make taste buds happy across the country, they are a company that gives back as well. Most recently, Bruegger's kicked off its annual fundraiser for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with a coffee campaign that benefits children's hospitals across the U.S.
First up, the 2014 Bottomless Mug is now available!
Bruegger's Bagels Bottomless Mug program began 11 years ago and has been helping children's hospitals since 2010. Guests who purchase a Bottomless Mug receive free coffee, tea and soda for the remainder of 2013 and throughout 2014, potentially saving hundreds of dollars per year.
Talk about a deal! If you are a regular to Bruegger's, the Bottomless Mug (cost varies per location but a Mug is approximately $169) can easily pay for itself by the end of 2013 and then will result in free coffee for all of 2014!
Even better, however, while guests enjoy the benefits of the Bottomless Mug, they are also contributing to a worthy cause in their communities — a portion of the proceeds from every mug sold goes directly to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals!
That's not all! Guests also can contribute to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by participating in Free Coffee Day this Thursday, November 7th. Until 2 p.m., guests who stop by Bruegger's can enjoy a free cup of coffee and donate spare change (or more) to help change a child's life. In 2012, guests contributed more than $25,000 on Free Coffee Day!
Since 2010, Bruegger's Bagels has donated more than $250,000 to benefit kids and families in need through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. In addition to the coffee campaign, Bruegger's neighborhood bakeries host fundraisers and events for local children’s hospitals throughout the year. For me, that just makes their authentic, award-winning New York-style bagels taste even better!
"Bruegger’s Bagels is such a valued partner, raising both awareness and funds for our local hospitals," said Clark Sweat, chief corporate partnerships officer at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. "Through sales of its coffee mugs and the support of its guests, Bruegger’s Bagels helps us do more good for millions of children and families across the U.S."
