Since 1969 Bagel King has been a made to order breakfast and lunch destination. Founded by Rinaldo Del Cegno an Immigrant from Italy, and his business partner. It started off as a Norwalk Italian bakery but evolved its focus after seeing the popularity of their bagels. They then changed the name to Bagel King. In 1976 Rinaldo opened another shop on the corner of Jewitt Ave. and Main St. in Bridgeport. In 1977 he opened in the Trumbull Mall until 1987. In 1984 the Jewitt Ave. shop moved to its current location to 3550 Main St. in Bridgeport (where Bagel King is currently).
In 2004 Rinaldo retired and children (2nd generation) Tanya (former Bridgeport elementary school teacher) and Steve (worked in IT services) took over operations. Although Rinaldo "retired" he still continues to work everyday.
Bagel King opened a second location at 276 Fairfield Ave. in Downtown Bridgeport, heart of Bijou Square in 2011. Just walking distance from all courthouses and Jury duty parking directly next door... jurors can stop in for breakfast on the way to court. This location features a soup bar and outdoor patio.
