After more than a year, local bagel shop opens for indoor dining
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Mort’s Bagels has been a part of the Cheyenne community for 25 years. Since the pandemic began, its stayed open but has been only offering curbside services, until now.
In the last week of March, Mort’s Bagels opened its doors for indoor dining again. Whether you are a breakfast or lunch lover, the employees are just happy to have the community back inside.
“It was fantastic. We’ve missed interacting with people and not just being at their car and smiling, and having them in here, and chatting with them and it’s just a different environment in here than outside,” said Mort’s Bagels Manager, Sarah Depoorter.
Depoorter has been a part of Mort’s Bagels for almost eight years, and has been the Manager for at least three of those years. She admits the last year has been a challenge, but staying open would not have been possible without the Cheyenne community’s support.
“The fact that we were open the entire time, it was stressful at times, but having loyal customers is the reason we’re still here and we cannot be more grateful.”
Depoorter will be taking over as Owner of the bagel shop in the future. Something she’s looking forward to, is strengthening current relationships, and building new ones with bagel lovers everywhere.
