Our History in Pictures

AT BROOKLYN BAGEL BAKERY, our story goes back even before 1953 when Seymour Friedman founded our family-run business. It goes all the way back to the 1920s, when his father Louis was a young man working in the "beigel" industry in New York - as you can see in the photo below.
