Founder

Kevin Lawler is a native Oregonian and the founder of Rescue Bagels. After moving from New York City back to his home state in 2011, he began experimenting with bagel recipes. He eventually developed his own recipe for hand-rolled, boiled bagels like the ones he ate during his time in New York City.
