Bread and Bagel’s busy baking
A new business in Quarry Village has been baking up an assortment of fresh bagels, breads and muffins each day. Park City Bread and Bagel offers six cream cheese flavors and 17 bagel options, including their signature French toast bagel topped with sugar and honey. Cranberry, blueberry and chocolate chip are the leading muffin flavors, and apple turnovers, cinnamon rolls, struedel, cookies and brownies make alternating appearances in the bakery display section. Park City Bread and Bagel owners Lisa Snyder, a former nurse, and Ed Snyder, a mechanical engineer, said they decided to open the business to get out of the corporate world and to spend more time with their two children, ages 6 and 8. Inspired by their favorite bakery in San Jose, Calif., Le Boulangerie, the Snyders toyed with the idea of opening a similar business in Park City since moving to the area in 1999. Two years ago the Snyders signed a lease for the store space and hired Cromwell Consulting to help them design the menu and the interior set-up of the business. Three weeks ago, Park City Bread and Bagel opened its doors. "We wanted it to have a real local feel, "Ed Snyder said. "We are not another franchise." The dining atmosphere of the store features a stone hearth and stove in the corner of the room, burgundy and orange-color walls and a corrugated metal ceiling with rustic wood beams. "We want to welcome people as if it is their own home," Lisa Snyder said. The Snyders said they plan to showcase work from local artists on the store walls. Until that happens, they have framed photograph prints of old-time Park City miners and skiers hanging. The Snyders said they hope their business will be a regular stop-off for Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook and Summit Park residents. They also want to get involved in more wholesale agreements with local schools, organizations and businesses. "People can just drive right off the highway and come in," Lisa Snyder said. Park City Bread and Bagel offers a "grab and go" bagel bar, for customers who want to pick up a half dozen or dozen bagels. Cream cheese, fresh fruit and prepared salads adjoin the bagel bar in a cooler. Breakfast sandwiches are prepared until 11 a.m. and lunch sandwiches run from 11 a.m. to 2. Bagels and pastries are available all day and drinks include smoothies and espresso. The Snyders said they hired nine employees and they are still looking to hire an assistant manager. Park City Bread and Bagel, located at 3126 Quarry Road near the Albertsons off the Jeremy Ranch exit of I-80, is open 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends.
