Einstein Bros Bagels eyeing move into downtown

A former Mrs. Field’s Cookies location on a prominent downtown corner could become home to a new Einstein Bros Bagels within the next few months.

Einstein’s corporate office staff said they weren’t ready to comment and leasing agent Rich Walker with First Properties said there is no lease yet and he couldn’t comment. However, construction contractors poured over blueprints with Einstein’s name on them  in the empty shop at 32 N. Tejon St. last week.

The blue prints were emblazoned with the Einstein’s logo and the two said Einstein’s plans to take up both 32 and 30 N. Tejon St., which was the former location of Shoemaker’s Camera.

The new bagel restaurant would be located at the corner of Kiowa Street and Tejon Street.

It would also be located one block south of competitor  Brueger’s Bagels.
