Sunrise Bagels is planning to move to Wilmington in May. According to owner Larry Cutts, they are closing their North Reading location and it will not be a bagel shop when they open in Wilmington.
The new shop will be open at 355 Middlesex Ave. in Wilmington. The Wilmington Selectmen voted to approve a common victualer license for the restaurant last week.
Sunrise Bagels has been in North Reading for 22 years, and they were the only bagel shop around when they opened, Cutts said.
"We hope a lot of our existing customers will make their way over," he said.
They plan to change the menu up a bit in the new location, especially the breakfast menu, Cutts said.
"We are not going to be a bagel shop, that’s not what we are looking at," he told Patch.
The new menu is not set in stone, but they hope to add omelets and made-to-order salads among other things. They also hope to expand the soup program, he said.
They don’t have a firm date for the move, but hope to change locations before the end of May, Cutts said.
