The Celebration location is open daily from 7 am - 2 pm.

Jeff and Danielle commented on the opening of the latest store in Celebration, saying, "Four years ago we were selling bagels out of our home kitchen. Many of you made the drive from Celebration to our house and picked up orders from the porch. Now having a store in the premier shopping center in your neighborhood is a bit surreal. We are forever grateful for those early days, we are here because of you!"

The couple went on to thank everyone who is helping them build Jeff’s Bagel Run, "Thank you to our partner Justin for crafting the vision of growth. Thank you David, Aaron, Josh, and Bryan for building the tools that make our daily lives better. Thank you Gary, Eddie, and Corey for bringing the brand to life. Thank you Ryann and Sedrick for actually putting these stores together. Thank you Sonny, you are a wizard. Thank you Catriona and Trevor for connecting our community. Thank you Min and Jason for supporting all of the (often unrecognized) back office operations. Thank you Glen and Jaclyn for the finest coffee in the land. Thank you to our store teams for serving bagel lovers across Central Florida."

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.
