Flambagel is a brand started by four partners who had found their passion for franchising through their success of a large chain of Coffee Shops in Canada. One of the founders decided to move to Taiwan with his wife in hopes of connecting their newborn daughter with her Taiwanese heritage.
Ever since they returned to Taiwan, they have missed the Canadians’ sense of service, connecting with the customers while providing a memorable experience, and creating a friendly work environment for all their employees.
This is exactly why these energy-filled entrepreneurs / lovebirds decided to bring a taste of their restaurant experiences to Taiwan, and bring their energy and experiences to the restaurant culture in Taiwan.
The brand name Flambagel, which sounds like “if” in Chinese, encourages people to follow their dreams and never question “if” they can do it, but to whole-heartedly follow every opportunity they find to reach their goals!
Flambagel is the very first “to-go” bagel bar in Taiwan. It brings a bit of American bagel culture to the busy streets of Taiwan. It combines the very traditional ways of making a bagel, which originates from the Jews, and some of the freshest ingredients that Taiwan has to offer.
This technique allows us to serve our customers perfectly baked bagels combined with richly melted cheeses, covering a layer of fruits and fresh syrups. This fusion allows the customer to enjoy the various mouth-watering tastes of all the ingredients.
Two of the original founders, Michael and Tim, managed a very large and successful chain known in Canada as Waves Coffee. Today, Michael has instilled his experiences and knowledge that he has gained from Waves Coffee into the values of Flambagel; to provide Taiwanese people with a menu of reasonably priced, delicious, and healthy choices.
To Give Back
Moreover, Flambagel wanted to bring the value of guest care and a sense of welcome to Taiwan’s bagel culture; and to create a sense of community among its guests. Kids from the age of 8 all the way to the elderly can feel like valued guests, as they connect with our brand message and values. In the past, one of the valued guests decided to choose Flambagel to help celebrate his friend’s birthday, and bring a sense of energy to the party.
All in all, Flambagel wants to bring everybody just a little closer together, while ensuring the best experience for every guest that steps through the doors of Flambagel.
