Kismet Bagels started as a popup operation during the pandemic. The Cohens began baking bread after their jobs were put on hold, selling to family and friends.

The Cohens opened their first brick-and-mortar location in April 2022 before opening a second location in early December. In addition, they plan on opening their Kismet Bialys stall at the Reading Terminal Market in the coming weeks.
