Here are a couple that make kettle boiled bagels. Nothing I know of in Charlotte County though.

I would drag my balls through 5 miles of broken glass before I would open another kettle boiled bagel bakery.
Did it for five years,we served bkfst/lunch, full deli in a tourist town....four months looked like we were millionaires, 8 months of worrying about who to pay first! Our income probably came to about 50 cents an hour. But man, they were the best bagels I ever had. And we did do pizzas for a while, closed the bakery at 3 and reopen 6 to 11 for pizza.....I was better off crawling through burning buildings in the South Bronx.

My son and daughter came up with the name and logo "Georgie Porgies Bagel Factory".....

Broadway Bagels... In the Books A Million shopping center..
It's on the other end, it's small and you can miss it...apparently people do..
as a fellow new yorker..they are good.

Also for Pizza try Joes pizza in the publix shopping center on the corner of 776 and the Boca Grande road (placida) I think

I also do not know why all this went bold.. I did not do this..
