In April, Winston Mezo decided he was ending the late nights outside of Pinch Penny Pub where he has cooked bagels for students and bar patrons for the past 34 years.

Many people in Carbondale thought the business was done for good and the end of an era was evident, but as of about a week ago, a new man has stepped up to attempt to be the new bagel man in Carbondale.

Brad Preiss of Murphysboro purchased the bagel cart from Mezo for $3,500 after seeing a listing on Craigslist for the business. The cart will be back in downtown Carbondale Friday under a similar name. Preiss said he understands Winston’s Bagels brand recognition is important.

“That’s why I’m keeping the name,” Preiss said. “It’s going to be called ‘Winston’s Bagels by B-Rad’ — ‘Almost as good as it used to be.’”
