WAYNESBORO, VA – Bagel lovers and kombucha lovers rejoice – the creators of Bake’mm Bagels are bringing fresh grilled bagel sandwiches to the Blue Ridge Bucha taproom. Starting this Saturday and Sunday, Janet and Cynthia – collectively known as the Bageladies – are launching their new food truck concept, The Bageladies Bagelini Bus, with a delicious array of grab ‘n’ go bagel sandwiches. The Bus will be open on weekends this summer at the Blue Ridge Bucha taproom from 12pm to 7pm.
Having been open for almost a year in their new Waynesboro space, co-owners Kate and Ethan Zuckerman feel the time is right to introduce an onsite, fresh food option. Says co-owner Kate Zuckerman: “We are excited to enhance the customer experience at our taproom by partnering with the Bageladies. We are always looking for innovative elements to bring to our space and believe our kombucha drinkers will enjoy having access to a delicious local bite right here without ever having to leave the outdoor patio. Because our many of our customers are health conscious, we're excited that the Bagelini Bus will also offer gluten free and vegetarian options in addition to an array of delicious bagel sandwiches. We look forward to growing our presence as a community gathering place and couldn’t ask for better local partners than Janet and Cynthia.”
A few of the standout Bagelinis include the Lil’ Havana, packed with turkey breast, ham, chipotle mayo, Swiss cheese, greens and dill pickle as well as the No-Bull Burger Bagelini, made with creamed Chevre, caramelized onions, fig spread, and greens.
Says Janet “There’s every reason to believe that Bagelini and Bucha will make great pairings. Both Blue Ridge Bucha and Bageladies have products that focus on health and wellness. Simple Goodness Made Better.”
The Blue Ridge Bucha taproom is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 12pm to 7pm, with a curated selection of local snack and non-kombucha beverage items, kids games, and WiFi. Check out their event page, where they frequently post about workshops, seasonal CSAs, and new flavor releases!
