The wholesale arm of the Newton-based Finagle a Bagel chain said that it is rolling out its bagels to Publix Supermarkets, a chain in the Southeast with more than 1,000 stores.
Around Boston, Finagle a Bagel may be best known for cafes that offer such fare as freshly prepared bagel sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, and flatbread pizzas. But the company also sells some of its products in supermarket chains.
Finagle’s wholesale arm is SJB Bagel Makers of Boston Inc. Earlier this year, SJB said that its bagels would be available in the dairy cases of about 500 Walmart locations. Shoppers can also buy Finagle a Bagels at such chains as Stop & Shop, Roche Brothers, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Hannaford, Market Basket, and Earth Fare. The company’s bialys are now in Whole Foods stores in New England.
In a statement, SJB owner and president Laura Trust commented on the announcement about Publix Supermarkets.
“We are excited to be providing shoppers in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama a truly hand-made, all-natural bagel and a real artisan bialy made right here in Boston,” Trust said.Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
