Since opening the cart in the Summer of 2011, SNBD has expanded its operations, below is the list of said operations and information on each one!
The opening of the Food Cart was phase one in Short North Bagel Deli’s business plan. It operates roughly March – November (depending on weather). The cart operates outside office buildings and on the campus of Ohio State University for lunches. In the evenings it operates at farmers markets as well as at special events. On weekends, you can find the cart at various special events or festivals going on in Columbus like Comfest or Park Street Festival. We also book the cart for private events such as graduation parties, weddings, birthday parties, etc. No event is too big or too small for the cart so please check out our catering page or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more about our private catering options!
The Short North Bagel Deli Food Truck launched in April 2014. You can see where the truck will be next by visiting our Calendar page but it generally sets up outside office buildings around Columbus during lunch. We also use it at events and festivals as well as private catering events. If you’d like to book our truck for your next party please visit our Catering Page.
Short North Bagel Deli started a partnership with Nationwide Insurance in October of 2012. We operate as a subcontractor inside Nationwide Insurance cafeterias and serve breakfast and lunch to Nationwide employees. The buildings and hours we operate are listed below:
Nationwide Insurance Plaza One – Monday – Friday 7:00am – 9:30am
Nationwide Insurance Rings Rd – Monday 11:00am – 1:30pm
Nationwide Insurance Plaza 2 – Monday – Friday 7:00 – 9:30am and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 11:00am – 1:30pm
The Plaza One and Rings Rd locations are unfortunately closed to the public, you must be a Nationwide employee or have access to the building to visit these locations. However Plaza 2 is open to the public! The address is 280 N. High St and we are located right in the main lobby (up the escalator). There is ample parking nearby and we are just a short walk for people who work downtown.
Short North Bagel Deli operates a concession stand (lack of a better description) inside the Jerome Schottenstien Center on the campus of Ohio State University. We of course sell our wonderful steamed deli sandwiches on bagels there as well as an array of stadium favorites, such as all beef hot dogs, jumbo pretzels, candy, and drinks! Looking for an adult night out? Good because we serve two local beers (Fourth Street Brewery Blonde and Columbus Brewing Company IPA), wine, and Barcadi Razz. We set up for all Men’s Basketball games and are open for most concerts and special events. We are located in the Huntington Club Level section 228, so if you are attending an event inside the Schott please be sure to check us out!
The Horse Shoe
One of our proudest moments as a small business (and die hard buckeye fans) was being accepted as a vendor for home Ohio State football games inside the famed Horse Shoe! We are set up an hour or two before kick off and serve steamed deli sandwiches on bagels to hungry football fans. In 2013 we were set up in the South B-Deck student section. We have plans of testing out a new location for the 2014 season, once our spot is determined you will be the first to know!
As our business continues to evolve new operations will be added (hopefully) and current operations will be modified. This page can serve as a good starting point to learn when and where we’ll be but the best bet is to check out our calendar to pin point our exact whereabouts.
