Consumer Comments

"The service was superb. I will go back and tell everyone I know about the restaurant"

"The Holey Guacamole sandwich was overstuffed and beautifully presented. The warm fresh baked everything bagel was filled with appetizing white turkey meat. The turkey meat was enhanced by the fresh lettuce, tomatoes, avocado slices, and slivers of green pepper. A fresh sour pickle was placed on the side. It was delicious and nutritious, and I enjoyed every bite."

"I would definitely return to this restaurant. It was cozy, and the food was great. I was impressed, I plan to return."

"This restaurant was affordable for the high quality product I got. It was high quality food with real ingredients presented in a deli type of way and I got a good deal for the price. It was obvious that everything was made from scratch. I will definitely go back to this location."





The two Centennial, Colorado My Favorite Muffin locations are owned and operated by local residents Eric Abbott and Mark Rank. Friends since their days at The University of Iowa, the two left behind corporate jobs to open the first Colorado My Favorite Muffin on Arapahoe Road in 1995. Two years later they opened the Dry Creek location. In 2008 Eric and Mark entered into an Area Development Agent agreement with the Franchisor to help develop additional My Favorite Muffin franchises in the state of Colorado.Eric Abbott and Mark Rank

In 2009 we became Development Agents to assist in the growth of the franchise in Lower Michigan and parts of Indiana. Our business allows us to be enjoy the benefits of ownership and still have quality family timeJason and Rachel Boussom
My family and I have been in the system a little over two years; we love all the products and enjoy the smiles on our customer's faces on a daily basis as they always tell us how much they enjoy the store. The support we receive is there when we need it but the corporate staff allows us to run our business within the guidelines without micro-managing us on a daily basis.Kurt Rietsch
My partner and I opened the store a few years ago and have been enjoying positive sales since the beginning. It is a pleasure to watch the transactions continue to grow and all it takes is: hard work, great products, great service and a comfortable environment. It is nice to have the operations and marketing assistance to help grow our businessGreg Hoop
Our store has been here for over 10 years. Meeting new people daily as well working with our regulars is always a joy. Having a product people love and support from the franchisor helps keep us a successful business. All of the staff at BAB is always quick to answer our questions and hear our ideas.Ed and Marianne Elgindy
