NORTH YORK, Ont. – Kiva’s Bagels opened in 1979, and now 30 years later the owner of the bakery and restaurant has celebrated the sale of its 30-millionth bagel… well, sort of.
Today (Nov. 9) was the day. As a packed restaurant of diners enjoyed a Kiva’s breakfast, Harold Tonken was picked at random as the lucky customer. He won $360 — which is a number symbolic of good health in the Hebrew culture — a trophy, a giant bagel and a prize package to mark the special occasion. “It’s an honour. I’m here every morning,” said the grinning customer, who eats with his three buddies at the family run eatery daily. “The bagels are great.”
