The new location at Winter Park, is another chapter in the success story of Jeff's Bagel Run, with another two locations set to open in Clermont, and Conroy/Kirkman.

The bagel shops which are run by local couple, Jeff and Danielle Perera, are expanding thanks to a strategic partnership with Justin Wetherill, founder of 1337 Capital, and the co-founder of the uBreakiFix chain.

Until Wednesday, June 19, as a token of gratitude, various community heroes are invited to savor a complimentary bagel on allocated days, simply by presenting their work ID or donning their uniform.

Jeff’s Bagel Run reveals new store coming soon to Oviedo

After relocating to Central Florida in 2016, Jeff and Danielle Perera found themselves longing for the authentic New York-style bagels that Danielle grew up enjoying.

Dissatisfied with the options available, they decided to take matters into their own hands. In 2019, when Jeff faced a layoff, Danielle saw an opportunity to turn their shared love of bagels into something more. With Jeff as the baker and Danielle as the taste tester, they embarked on a journey to perfect the art of bagel making.

Amidst the challenges of the pandemic, Jeff initiated what would become known as the “bagel run” – personally delivering freshly baked “Always boiled, never toasted” bagels door-to-door to friends, neighbors, and local businesses. The response was overwhelming, with demand quickly outpacing supply. Fuelled by the enthusiasm of their community, Jeff’s Bagel Run evolved from a humble home kitchen operation to a thriving business.

The success of the “bagel run” paved the way for Jeff and Danielle to expand their reach, selling their delectable bagels at local markets and events. Finally, in June 2021, they realized their dream of opening the first Jeff’s Bagel Run brick-and-mortar location in Ocoee, Florida.

With Danielle leaving her corporate job to join Jeff “full bagel,” the Perera family poured their hearts and souls into creating a warm, inviting space where customers could experience the joy of freshly baked bagels.
