Best of Colorado: Josh Pollack

Our Best of Colorado Speaker Series features Colorado’s finest entrepreneurs discussing their startup story and lessons learned along the way. In partnership with the CU Denver Risk Management Insurance program, we are excited to have Joshua Pollack, CU Denver Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship alum and founder/owner of Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen, share his personal experiences with us over FREE lunch!

Pollack brought Rosenberg’s to life in July 2014, and the deli has become a Denver staple ever since. Unfortunately, the storefront burned down in May 2016 after an arsonist set fire to the building housing Rosenberg’s. Thanks to a good relationship and policy with his insurance agency early on, Pollack was able to get the business back up and running in six months. This is the story of how Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen (literally) walked through fire and rose from the ashes.

This event is open to the public.

Joshua was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City. After graduating from high school, he took his love for food and family West, to study at the University of Colorado Boulder. It’s there he met his wife, Kara Pollack, who helps him run the delicatessen.

Drawing on his love of New York City’s classic food establishments such as Russ and Daughters, Katz’s Deli, and a few others, Joshua decided to focus on what he loves most – New York bagels and lox!

After months of construction and years of product development, Joshua opened the doors of Rosenberg’s Delicatessen to the public on July 26, 2014. Named after his mother and guardian angel, Karen Rosenberg Pollack, Rosenberg’s Deli is rooted in the two things Joshua is most passionate about – food and his family.
