The Thomas'® brand dates back to 1880 when Samuel Bath Thomas created his original English Muffin in New York City using a secret process that included griddle baking to create a Nooks and Crannies English Muffin. The company has since added bagels and breakfast breads to its breakfast offerings. Today, Thomas'® sells the No. 1 English Muffin and No. 1 grocery bagel in the U.S.
