It started with a bagel and a dream…
Collegetown Bagels opened in 1976, when bell bottoms and disco balls ruled the world
CTB was purchased by the Brous and Mehaffey families in 1980
7 years later, they purchased and renovated the Ithaca Bakery on Meadow St.
Today there are 5 CTB and IB locations total with over 300 employees
We offer catering, whole sale, and retail options
All locations are committed to green business practices
As well as countless donations to the local Ithaca community
Today we serve Ithacans & visitors from all walks of life, see you soon!
