In the Community

While we make a point of wanting to provide the best bagel and more importantly, the best customer service in the Mt. Washington Valley, we take equal pride in giving back to our lovely community as well.  Below are some pictures from some of the many events we’ve had the privilege on working on with our community partners, neighbors, and friends and family :).

Best Bagels and Sandwiches in the Mount Washington Valley

We are absolutely thrilled and humbled to be recognized for both the Best Bagel and the Best Sandwiches in the Mt. Washington Valley (for the third straight year!) through the Conway Daily Sun’s Readers’ Choice Awards.  Our thanks go to all of our customers, who make us want to make those delicious bagels and sandwiches in the first place!  We love serving the Mt. Washington Valley and the Conway community!

Mount Washington Valley Chili Cook-Off

After a few close finishes, this year Big Dave’s finally took home both the Best Chili and the People’s Choice awards at the 13th Annual Mount Washington Valley Chili Cook-Off!  Thanks to all the voters who named us the best in the valley! Check out the article above for more about this year’s competition, and stop by next year to try out Big Dave’s next entry – Big Dave always likes to up his game for each contest! 

Warrior Hikers

With our Warrior Hikers, who took a day off making their way up the Appalachian Trail to chow on some Big Dave’s (and meet Stella!). Each year the Warrior Hikers organize a group of veterans to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail – we’re happy to have the chance to feed them!

Chili Dog Cookoff and Eating Competition

The past two summers, we’ve had the pleasure of hosting an annual Chili Dog Cook Off and eating competition to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.  We’ve been happy to be a featured event at our annual North Conway 4th of July celebration these past few years!

Conway Rec Department – Big Dave’s Day

We’ve also visited the Conway Rec Department for their annual Big Dave’s Day – where we feed a lot of happy and energetic local youngsters 

Classroom Visits to our Store

And sometimes the youngsters decide to come see how the bagels are made, or get a special classroom visit from the baker to explain…

We love our community, that has been so welcoming to our family here, and look forward to more years of good things to come!
