Montreal could soon have a new player on the wood-fired bagel scene, as Ottawa favourite Kettleman’s Bagel Co. (or just “Kettleman’s” to many) is eyeing an expansion to the city.

Last week, the Ottawa Business Journal reported that the capital’s go-to place for Montreal-style bagels is planning major expansions with the help of investment money from a private growth equity firm. That story highlighted Toronto as a destination for the bakery’s expansions, but Kettleman’s founder Craig Buckley has confirmed to Eater that he’s likely to open up storefronts in Montreal.

Buckley says he’s in talks to take over an existing bagel-maker in Montreal, which would then give Kettleman’s the infrastructure to set up. Since those buy-out talks are ongoing, Buckley declined to name the company.
