Einstein Noah holds 'training super sessions'

LAKEWOOD Colo. Einstein Noah Restaurant Group is holding "training super sessions" for managers of its licensed bagel restaurants, the company said.

The first six-day session began Thursday. Nine general managers, retail managers and assistant managers of licensed branches — including units at universities, hospitals, hotels and military bases — will train at Einstein Noah's corporate offices here. As part of their training, the managers will learn how to prepare every item on their menus. They will also operate a kiosk in the headquarters and serve meals to corporate employees, Einstein Noah said.

Einstein Noah will hold five more training super sessions this year.

Earlier this month, Einstein Noah said it had laid off six people in its support center and also eliminated 15 district manager positions in reorganizing its field operations.

Einstein Noah operates, licenses, or franchises more than 600 units operating under the Einstein Bros. Bagels, Noah’s New York Bagels and Manhattan Bagel brands.
