Dear fam, 

We are *SO excited* to share our latest Big Bon venture with you all! The goal of our Kickstarter campaign is to pre-sell bagels, merch, and gather startup funds for the Big Bon Bodega shop! Here's the lowdown: 

THE CONCEPT - BIG BON BODEGA  

BIG BON BAGELS
BIG BON BAGELS

We're opening Big Bon Bodega, a wood fired bagel shop and market. 

Our intention? For this lil' bagel shop to be a "home away from home" for our Big Bon family and the Savannah community we love so dearly. 

Bodega’s menu will include wood fired bagels, shmears, and fresh on the go items. We'll be sprinkling some Korean family flavors throughout the menu and space too!

THE SPOT - 37th & BULL ST.

QUESTIONS? WE GOT YOU 

What are the funds going? The goal of our Kickstarter campaign is to pre-sell bagels, merch, and gather startup funds for the Big Bon Bodega shop!

When will you be open? This winter! 

Why the name "Big Bon Bodega"? Traditionally, a “bodega” is classified as a small neighborhood market. Since we're creating our Big Bon version of a bagel shop and market on a neighborhood corner...the name was a perfect fit! 

Will you guys still do Big Bon Pizza? YES. As some of you know, our first venture is Big Bon Pizza, a wood fired pizzeria on wheels. Don't worry! We're keeping the pizza love strong in Savannah with truck pop ups and catering. 

Will you have vegan / gluten free options? Heads up for our vegan / gluten free friends! Our bagels are boiled in *honey and malt water* before baking in the wood fired oven. Currently, the honey is sourced nearby from Colonial Plantation Honey in South Carolina. Right now, we haven't developed a GF bagel recipe. However, our awesome Bodega team is developing some delish menu items that will be vegan and/or gluten free! 

BIG BEAR HUGS AND THANKS TO: Kevin Heritage Sr., Charles Masters, Melvy Basco, Mike Schalk, Meredith Sutton and Kevin Ryan, Ele Tran, Tom, Nada, and James (bagel makers from Atlanta), the Call Your Mother Deli bagel crew (Chef Daniela, Andrew and Chris), Katie Schiewe (foodie babe), and Katherine Gobel (girly pop illustrator). Our bagel dreams are possible because of your support and guidance!  

KICKSTARTER VIDEO (FILMED ON OUR IPHONES). SPECIAL THANKS TO...

Miss Zoe Dog for being the cutest Bodega model, Bryson Schmidt for mixing a dope song for us, and Meredith Sutton (Zoe's pup mama) for helping film the motorcycle high five :)
