Recently featured on Good Morning America! Kismet Bagels was founded by accident in the early weeks of the pandemic. Jacob and Alexandra Cohen’s jobs in sales and entertainment were put on hold, and the couple weren’t sure what to do with their suddenly empty schedules. They began baking bagels and after a few batches for friends and family, Alexandra had the urge to use their new passion to raise funds for local charities. They began selling bagels to their neighbors and donating the proceeds to Project Home, a local organization helping the homeless in Philadelphia. To this day, a portion of every single sale benefits community charities and causes.
