Pops Bagels Commissary, LLC Bakery General Manager Los Angeles, CA · Full time

Pop’s Bagels is a true passion project for our founder, Zach Liporace. In 2017, after 6 years of living in LA and searching for a bagel that hit the right spot, he decided to start a little side hustle as a bagel maker. This wasn’t a quick decision. He had been making bagels for fun with friends for a few years prior (messing around with making his own cream cheese as well). Pop's Bagels gets its name from Zach's grandfather. They called him Pop's and he was from New York. He taught Zach what a great bagel should be.
