The Team

Okay, just gonna say it. We have the best team in town.

And it’s a good job too, because we’re also the busiest café in town. Without our crew of amazing bagellers, this place simply wouldn’t be able to function. We strive to produce quality handmade bagels, with wholesome ingredients, served quickly and with a smile. We’re conscious of the environment and try our best to reduce waste wherever we can. Recycling, composting and our Rent-a-Mug program are just some of the ways we are trying to be the greenest café we can be. Maybe that’s why we’ve won WildSite’s Greenest Café award several years in a row!

Wanna work for us?

Whether you’re a long-time Fernie resident, or you’re just arriving in town, if you’re hard-working, fun to be around and pride yourself on good customer service, come in and drop off a resume. Our big hiring times are in November and May, the start of Fernie’s busy seasons, so bear that in mind.

We’ve hired people from all over the world, many of whom were only here for a season or two, so we’re proud to say we now have friends in all four corners of the globe.

Work Hard and Play Hard

Big Bang Bagels is open 362 days per year. We only close for Christmas Day and 2 staff days. During peak times, we have queues of people lining up out the door and down the street, so it gets pretty hectic at times! As such, when we deserve a break, we really go for it.

Twice a year, we close the shop and treat ourselves to an epic staff day adventure. In summer, we go white water rafting with Canyon Rafting and throw ourselves off a big cliff into the Elk River. In winter, we go cat skiing with Fernie Wilderness Adventures and bask in the glorious powder-covered backcountry of the Canadian Rockies.
