SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A newly opened bagel shop in Syracuse is off to a rough start.
Schoolyard Bagels, which opened in the old Starbucks location on Marshall Street just last week, has announced it’s temporarily closing after four days
On Saturday, Feb. 11, Schoolyard Bagels posted the following statement on Facebook.
The past two days have been a humbling learning experience for us. Despite the overwhelming turnout, we realized we were not as prepared as we thought, leading to longer wait times than anyone should expect. Your patience and support have been incredible, and for that, we are truly grateful. To ensure we live up to your expectations and our standards, we’ve decided to take a short pause, stepping back to refine our processes and improve your experience. We will be temporarily closing to make necessary adjustments, focusing on how we can best serve you. This is not a goodbye, but a short break to ensure when we return, we do so stronger and more ready than ever to welcome you back with open arms and faster service. Thank you for your understanding and unwavering support.

To make sure they are ready for the influx of people that come, Schoolyard Bagels said they are temporarily closing to be prepared for an overwhelming turnout and get wait times down.
According to the shop’s website, owners Nick, Pete, and Carmine are from Brooklyn and wanted to, “Bring the delicious handmade bagels and homemade Italian food of the old neighborhood to their new home in Syracuse.”
The shop serves authentic Brooklyn-style bagels and homemade bites available for order in person, online, and for delivery.
It’s undetermined how long this “short break” will last as the business “makes adjustments.”
