About Brewsters

There's More In Store Than Ever Before!
"Our success begins with fresh, made-from-scratch, premium bakery and baked goods...bagels, breads, muffins, and more. And, because the majority of our restaurants are both manufacturing and retail units, we have a streamlined distribution and operating system. Our unique approach in offering fresh, made-from-scratch food to our customers - coupled with a low initial investment level - is a formula for success. Success from scratch that is..."

-- Michael W. Evans
