Where in Fort Collins will the new Einstein Bros. Bagels be located?

The planned location for the new Einstein Bros. Bagels in Fort Collins is in a business strip just east of College Ave., the Coloradoan said on Wednesday (June 1), at 250 E. Harmony Road, Suite F-2.

As per reports from an Einstein Bros. Bagels spokesperson, the new bagel shop is scheduled to open in early August 2022.

The slated location for the new bagel shop is next door to a former Starbucks coffee shop, which closed shop back in March; the vacant space was formerly home to a martial arts and self-defense studio.

"We are a proud Colorado company and we want to offer our delicious bagels and sandwiches to everyone in the state," Einstein Bros. Bagels chief marketing officer Hector Briones said, according to a statement sent to the Coloradoan on Wednesday.

"Fort Collins is a great place to live and now better with Einstein Bros. Bagels."

According to archived reports from the Coloradoan, Einstein Bros. Bagels previously had a home in Fort Collins, located at 1101 W. Drake Road from 1996 until its closure sometime in 2000.
