Bagel Bites were invented by Stanley Garkzynski and Bob Mosher, both of Fort Myers, Florida, who then sold the company to major food producer John Labatt Co.. Later a large portion of Labatt Co. was purchased by Heinz in 1991 in a $500 million deal. Bagel Bites is currently still owned by Heinz via the Ore-Ida brand.
