About Darren & Shan

The Rocky Mountain Bagel Company was established in 1995 and purchased by the current owners in 2004.

Shanyn Fischer is originally from Red Deer AB and has since traveled the world extensively. Shanyn has managed and served in coffee shops for the last 12 years in Canada and abroad. She has put her heart and soul into The Bagel Co even before becoming an owner, when she worked for the original owners years ago.

Darren Fischer is originally from Calgary AB. and spent a lot of time growing up in and around Canmore, working and playing in the beauty of the mountains. Darren graduated from cooking school in 2001 and soon after took his passion for food and lust to learn over seas to New Zealand. There his love for coffee and coffee culture was born.


Coffee Culture

We love the 'Coffee Culture' and it is this love that is the inspiration behind the Bagel Company. Coffee Culture to us is a commitment to serving amazing coffee and food in a comfortable environment by friendly people who share that passion. In our coffee culture everyone is welcome, whether your 9 months or 90 years and from all walks of life. You can come and relax, watch films or the major sporting events on the flat screen, absorb the art that rotates around our walls or sit on our couches gathering with friends and you'll probably find your head bopping and foot tapping while you take in the tunes playing.

The culture is about being true to yourself and doing what you like to do. The Bagel Co family and culture has been enriched since we took over with the addition of our two sons Owen (born 2007, see photo slider) and Theo (born 2010), who are often seen working the floor for smiles and talking to customers.
