In partnership with Just Eat and Deliveroo, the popular bagel maker will be offering its food to more people and areas across the capital to ensure bagel fans can get their fix during the recent coronavirus enforced social distancing measures.

Owner of Bross Bagels, Larah Bross who is lauded for bringing her Montreal style bagels to Edinburgh, said they will also be offering 15 per cent off to all NHS workers who present their cards.

Having just launched their biggest store yet and created a new, improved recipe for their iconic bagels, the firm has also added a new range of isolation packages for customers facing social distancing including a family pack featuring two basic and two signature bagels, four sides, four cans and four desserts for £29, and a 'Homie pack' with four signature bagels, four sides, four cans and four desserts for £34.

They are also offering a DIY selection pack for £60 which features a baker's dozen of their bagels alongside a selection of fillings.

The team are currently baking off-site throughout the night at their friend's ‘Nice Times Bakery’ on Morison Street until their in-house Bross bakery is built in their brand new Portobello High Street shop within the old RBS building which is due to be completed later this year.

Founder Larah Bross said: “This is a very difficult time for us all and we are all in it together, I’ve seen so much support and love throughout our city the past few days.

"We have so much respect for all of our NHS workers during this time especially, so firstly we want to ensure that they are looked after.

"We have also had great demand for our delivery service so we have extended this as much as possible throughout the city in many more locations and teamed up with both Just Eat and Deliveroo to ensure you get your bagel fix.”
