From Shark Tank to Food Truck: Bantam Bagels is in Seattle for month of September

There's a reason why people are battling in line to get their hands on these Bantam Bagels.

They're the bomb.

Nick and Elyse Oleksak are the brains behind these bodacious bagels that are bite sized and filled with flavor. Their unique and tasty idea started in their small Brooklyn apartment and became so popular that they had to expand into a brick and mortar shop in the Big Apple. Their first and only store is in the West Village of NYC, and has gained such notoriety that they have seen customers like Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah.

Though their business was really booming, they needed some extra *dough.* Cue, Shark Tank

Nick and Elyse studied harder for that show pitch than they did for their SATs - and the studying paid off. After partnering with Shark Lori, Lori pitched the idea of turning Bantam Bagels into a food truck, and the success kept rolling in. Starbucks jumped on board, selling those delightful bites in stores all over the map, and now they have many different varieties, everything from scrambled eggs to a pretzel salt bagel.

And luckily for Seattle - those delicious bagel balls have made their way into Seattle...for the ENTIRE month of September. Be sure to try out Bantam Bagels, in various locations all over the city. Here's their schedule:
