Second Einstein Bros. Bagels opens tomorrow

Posted online
Springfield's second Einstein Bros. Bagels is set to open Oct. 4 at 4430 S. Campbell Ave.

“We think it’s an awesome location,” said Terry Reynolds, owner of C. Arch Bay Co. and co-owner of the Springfield franchise rights for Einstein Bros. Bagels.

The franchisee company, RT Development LLC, comprises Reynolds and Rita Baron of Baron Design & Associates LLC. RT Development already runs an Einstein Bros. location at 1933 S. National Ave.

The 3,200-square-foot Campbell location, leased from Andy Kuntz of Andy's Frozen Custard and White Shirts LLC, cost roughly $580,000 to build.

The shop, next to Andy’s Frozen Custard just south of James River Freeway, will open with a giveaway of 100 free breakfasts for a year to the first 100 people in line on opening day.

“We did the same thing for the first store’s opening,” Reynolds said. “We had about 300 people wrapped around the building, and we think we’ll have even more this time.”

Upon opening the first Springfield location, RT Development also made plans to open three more stores by 2013.

In an April 2011 Springfield Business Journal article, Baron said RT Development is searching for a third location - possibly on Battlefield Road.

Reynolds said Battlefield Road is still an option, but she noted that RT Development would begin searching in earnest for a third location next year.

“We get a lot of calls,” she said. “People have lots of ideas, but we’re focused on getting the Campbell store up and running.”

Einstein Bros. Bagels' menu options include freshly baked bagels and breads, sandwiches and home-style soups, sweets and artisan roasted coffee.

The restaurant is open 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.[[In-content Ad]]
