Philadelphia, PA - Jacob and Alexandra Cohen started baking bagels as their regular jobs became less relevant during the Pandemic. It started as merely a craving for a good bagel but soon became a way to raise money for charities impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Kismet Bagels started with a post on the Northern Liberties Neighborhood Facebook page, and soon orders and donations started coming in from all over the city.
Soon after a successful pop-up at Urban Village Brewing in Northern Liberties, Jacob and Alexandra had raised over $1200 for Project Home.
After a few more pop-ups during the summer of 2020, with businesses such as Rally Coffee, Olly, Riverwards Produce, Somerset Splits, Tired Hands Fermentaria, and Steve and Cookies in Margate, NJ, Kismet Bagels is now offered in various cafes around Philadelphia.
• Rally, Queen Village
• Steap and Grind, Fishtown
• Riverwards Produce, Fishtown, starting in November
• On the delivery service app GoPuff, starting in November
The small shop now offers various bagel flavors and various homemade flavored schmears and their "Slow Toasted" Everything Seasoning.
"We do not have any interest in the opening as a retail shop, preferring to focus on the combination of wholesaling to cafes and stores, as well as direct to consumer pop-ups," says Jacob.
