We are cruising through winter and trying to stay positive with this tough winter we have had. I think we have decided that we are ready for SPRING to come quickly. I have a love/ hate relationship with winter. I love snow, but it keeps you away, so it is bad for business. Now that we are use to it and we are getting hints of spring, I hope to return to our usual business.
So now I want to talk about what we pride ourselves on here. We make most everything we serve right here in our tiny kitchen. The Bagels are made from real ingredients, shaped and baked right here. You can even watch the process. All of our spreads are mixed here, the cookies and brownies are made with real butter. We chop all our own vegetables for all our soups and make the batch from scratch, no mixes or cans here! We also cook the chicken we use in our chicken salad.Our salads are made to order too! So in other words, what I am trying to tell you, is we have great fresh food made from the best ingredients I can buy. For my type of restaurant, that is rare. You will always get the highest quality of food here at Nancy’s. So do yourself and your body a favor, make Nancy’s a regular part of your diet.
Hope to see you soon!]]>
Other January new is that we enjoyed seeing some of college students return and help us out during the holidays. It was good to see them and i appreciated their help. College is agreeing with all of them.
We are swinging with the crazy weather and it’s inconsistency. One thing you can be sure of here at Nancy’s Bagel Grounds we are always consistent. Our bagels are always delicious and our coffee is hot and will open your eyes. The soup will warm your heart. The salads will hit the spot. So come visit us and fill your soul.
See you soon and go see the bike races!
Bagels for the office. Yes, we can put a tray together for you and you will be the hit of the season when you show up with it at the office. We can also hook you up with a box of great coffee to keep you going through the Christmas season.
Nancy’s is a great place to meet old and new friends for a holiday lunch. We are serving our delicious hot soups and we have great yummy, healthy, salads and our sandwiches are beyond good. Join us!
The staff of Nancy’s Bagel Grounds and Nancy’s Bagel B0x wishes everyone and safe and Happy Holiday.]]>
First, Goodbye to Jacob. He has left the state to pursue a Master’s Degree in Writing from the University of Massachusetts. I will miss his wide variety of music he introduced us to and his great sense of humor. Jacob worked here for two years and was an excellent employee and friend. Good luck Jacob. Goodbye to Erin. Erin is going off to college in Berea. She worked here for four years and learned both sides of this business, working with the customers and working in the kitchen. She was very valuable and a happy spirit. I will miss her smiling, laughing face. Hopefully, we will see Erin fill in a shift during the holidays. We said Goodbye to Erin’s sister Katie last year, but Katie actually filled in a shift just last week and we welcomed her back with open arm. These sisters are a prize. I feel lucky to have had them with me for so long. I will miss them both. Goodbye to Jessie. Jessie is heading to the University of Cincinnati to start her college career. She worked here for two years and was the source of keeping us up to date with the latest drama in the high school scene. She also worked with the customers and in the kitchen and was always available to help. We will probably see her during holidays. I will miss her, and so will my daughter. Goodbye to Sydney. She is off to Western Kentucky University. Sydney was here for two years and the pillar on Sundays. She keep things calm and collected even on the craziest days. I will miss her reliability and stability. Good luck Sydney. Goodbye to Jeff. Jeff is off to the University of Kentucky. Go Big Blue. He loves the Cats. Jeff was Mr. Anything. He did anything we needed him to do from taking out the garbage to working the front counter. Jeff worked here for two years also. Hopefully he learned a few things from working with all women most days, ha!. He was a little clumsy and left here with a few scars, something to remember us by. Good luck Jeff.
These kids became part of my bagel family and i will miss them, but hope to keep in contact and follow along in the college adventures.
WELCOME! to the new staff. We have, Julia, Ally, Devon, Sam, Corey, Maura, and Phoenix. They are learning fast and doing very well. Please say hello and welcome them when you come in. This is their first job for a few of them and we hope to give then a positive and happy experience. We also want to welcome Linda. Linda is our new kitchen prep person on the weekends and is fitting into our crazy little family quite well. We also have Debbie, who has been here for about 3 months and we love her.
I have been extremely lucky in my years here to have had so many great employees come though. I hope that they have enjoyed or are enjoying their time here and i thank them for their loyalty and dedication to Nancy’s.]]>
I have learned a lot in the last 16 years. It has been an interesting ride. I have had lots of high points and a few lows, but over all a very rewarding experience. I will be writing a blog about how we do certain things with production here to funny stories about our staff and customers. So, follow along and learn about the wacky world of owning a café.]]>
