You can now get bagels without leaving your home if you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina area through a service called BagelGram NC.

I interviewed BagelGram NC owner and bagel maker, Kevin Priest, to learn more about the local bagel delivery service that is taking the Queen City's suburban areas from Mint Hill to Waxhaw by storm.

Priest, or KP as he goes by, created BagelGram during the early days of the pandemic. They say necessity breeds creativity, and that seems to be the case.

Having lost his job due to the pandemic, he figured he could either sit on the couch collecting unemployment, or set an example for his daughter, Olivia, and turn lemons into lemonade. Or in his case, bread into bagels.

KP comes from a culinary background, but once he started his family, he realized he didn't want to work late night restaurant shifts.

Making and delivering bagels was right up his alley, so he took the idea and has run with it.

BagelGram NC averages about 650 to 700 bagels made per week and KP delivers from Stallings to Mint Hill, Matthews, Wesley Chapel, Waxhaw and Indian Land. He says it's usually about a 3 hour round trip, which he really enjoys, every Wednesday and Saturday.

The idea for the name BagelGram came from the old telegram, not Instagram, as I had thought. When you order bagels to be delivered to your home, he knocks on the door and shouts, "BagelGram!" like the old telegram dispatchers used to do.

Watch the video to get to know KP and learn more about his business, BagelGram NC, and to find out how you can place an order!
