Our Story - The Owners

A Little Hero History:

Hero Coffee and Bagel Bar opened it's first doors in 2014 in Chicago. 

Hero is owned by myself (Michelle Martinez) and my partner Trey. We are two hospitality driven entrepreneurs passionate about local Chicago community service and a love for high quality coffee and bagels. Our mission statement "to positively impact our communities one meaningful cup at a time" means we put our heart into everything we do.

In a city with an ever-growing number of new roasters and restaurants, Hero Coffee and Bagel Bar wants to stand out as a Chicago staple committed to making a positive impact with not only the way we locally roast and source our beans, choose our local vendors, but also our commitment to the charity projects we choose to partner with. 

Hero Bagel Bar is a space we hope you get to enjoy and experience with friends and family. From our Free book library to the board games we provide in house for you to enjoy. We hope to see you in one of our shops soon and we want to personally thank you for being our Heroes! Esperemos que nos visitas pronto!
