It all began with a “retirement” dream to one day bring the steamed bagel sandwich to Columbus, Ohio. As a student at Miami University (Ohio), Nate was a regular at the ‘Bagel and Deli’ where he enjoyed the steaming concept and all it had to offer, from the creative options to the joy of the first bite.

After graduating, a four-year separation ensued between Nate and the unforgettable steamed bagel sandwiches. With the support of his family and friends, and the need to satisfy a craving, it was time to make his retirement dream a reality.

Nate met the right people at the right time. He was introduced to a local and successful mentor/restaurateur who guided him, a lovely girlfriend, Cali, whose family has experience running a successful kitchen, and a close-friend, Matt, who has managed bars/kitchens for 10+ years. Lastly, Nate and Juan met, because their moms are longtime friends.

Nate, Matt, and Juan realized that their dreams and educational backgrounds aligned and complimented each other seamlessly. In the summer of 2017, the team sold steamed bagel sandwiches as a pop-up shop at Platform Beer Co. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the support was humbling. Thus, Nate’s Steamed Bagels was born!

Later in August of 2018, as a team, they invested in their very own food truck!

Don’t forget to try a Cali Club and a What’s up 1 (Juan)!

We have a responsibility and drive that goes beyond selling sandwiches. Our duty and commitment is to positively benefit our communities. In the summer of 2017, we proudly supported Peletonia, donating 100% of our tips to life saving cancer research at the James Cancer Center at The Ohio State University.

Additionally, we also supported the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief for those families who suffered due to Hurricane Irma in Florida.

In April of 2018 we happily partook in the “All Things Brunch Festival” hosted by Columbus Underground. Brunch lovers from all over Columbus enjoyed samples from a variety of food vendors with all ticket sales being donated to the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation of Central Ohio. Together we helped raise over $2,500 to help mentor local kids, Thank You!

Giving back continues to be a foundation of our culture at Nate’s Steamed Bagels and we know that together, with our team and customers, we can achieve great things year-round.
