Florida couple falls in love with Macon, moves to open bagel business

(Editor’s Note: This is the first of a regular series featuring a look inside local businesses — the things they make, services they provide & their impact on the community.)

Florida native Lauren Bone always baked as a hobby, but once the pandemic hit in 2020, she began to bake professionally.

In early 2022, Bone along with her partner, Patrick Rademaker, took a trip to Macon and fell in love with the area. So much so, they moved to the city. In August 2022, the couple opened Macon Bagels.
