In 1993, Mitch Shidlofsky moved to South Florida from New York to seek a better life for his then four year old son, Jordan. Two years later, his second son, Adam, was born. He was desperately searching for a way to support his family and at the same time have the flexibility of spending a lot of time with his children. The answer was the bagel/deli business. "I will never regret this decision, as it enabled me to pick my kids up from school, coach their teams and much more!"
Mitch purchased an existing deli in 1993 in Sunrise, Florida where he learned from the ground up every job in this business. In 1998 he sold the deli and two months later purchased another bagel/deli in Coral Springs Florida. In 2002, with a vision for his own style, he sold the deli and signed a lease in an up and coming section of Coral Springs called Heron Bay. "I built my store with my name on it and Westside Bagels was born!" Fresh and top quality ingredients were the focus of the food. Today our guests rave about our Tuna Salad, Matzoh Ball Soup, our freshly baked Bagels and many other items as being simply the best!
Fast forward to today and his now 26 year old son, Adam has entered the family business. “Adding a fresh, millennial, and new touch to the business will take it to new heights,” says Mitch. The combination of 30 years of experience with the addition of social media, new menu items, and a modern twist will continue to adapt the business for the future.
