Please read this article from Good.is about saluting Mr. Lender and Mr. Glazer for bring bagels and drip coffee into every home.
“It may seem strange to celebrate the consumer culture behind these products in this age of local food and micro-economies. Mass-produced frozen bagels might not be winner with locavores (or people from New York), but every local bagel bakery owes some thanks to Lender for the cultural impact of his vision; besides, there’s room in the market for convenience and gourmet products.”
“While the home coffee pot and the bagel are ubiquitous today, it took vision for Lender and Glazer to spot the need for these products in peoples’ lives. It’s worth a modest celebration of the market economy when you see how the confluence of idea, resources, and consumers helped bring a small convenience into the mornings of millions. Raise your bagels and sip some coffee for Murray Lender and Sam Glazer.”
