Business Spotlight: Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli

Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli started as a bagel and ice cream store in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. “Heidi’s Bagels and Ice Cream,” later named “Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli,” opened on September 9, 1994.

By 1997, with a lot of hard work and a little luck, Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli grew and serves over 35 of the best sandwiches around (all on FRESH BREAD BAKED DAILY IN-HOUSE), salads, soups, wraps, smoothies, desserts, breakfast and handmade bagels. In May of 1999, the second Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli opened in Northglenn. The first franchise location opened in March of 2005 south of Denver in Lone Tree, Colorado. Still family-owned today, with 13 locations, the Heidi’s team is happy to be back on the west side, opening in Gold’s Marketplace at 26th and Kipling.

Back in 2011, Heidi’s chose to pursue the highest-quality, natural products available starting with the proteins and cheeses they source. The products are nitrate and nitrite free, hormone and antibiotic free, grass fed, humanely raised, and non-GMO whenever possible. They have partnered with Perdue/Harvestland Poultry, Old World Provisions, Fra’Mani Meats,and Rumiano Cheese Company to name a few. 

Heidi Bendiksen Naples is grateful and proud that her daughters Jenee Massey and Juliana Naples, are the leaders and owners of multiple locations, and along with wonderful staff, are carrying on the legacy and work hard everyday to create a memorable experience, offering the highest-quality products and neighborly service to their patrons. They are proud to be ‘Born in Brooklyn and Raised in Colorado. We are grateful for the support of the community!
