Who was Jacob Carter?
Jacob Carter, the co-founder of Howdy Bagel in Tacoma, Washington, along with his partner Daniel Blagovich, started the business in 2020, when they both lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially, they began by delivering homemade bagels to friends and family from their home. Over time, their venture grew, and last year, they opened a popular storefront in Tacoma, reflecting the community’s love for their delicious bagels.
Jake and Daniel, bonded by their love for food and cooking, aimed to share that joy with the city. Spending countless nights and early mornings, they perfected their recipes, offering not just tasty bagels but also delightful schmears (spreads). Their journey from job layoffs to a thriving bagel business showcases their dedication and the community’s appreciation for their culinary creations.
