Best of the Bronx: ‘Just Bagels’

Posted: Updated:
HUNTS POINT -

Just Bagels, built from the ground up in 1992, has spread from the Bronx to 14 countries worldwide.

The Hunts Point company churns out 250,000 fresh bagels daily.

Clifford Nordquist, founder of Just Bagels, says the secret to their great-tasting bagels is “definitely the water” and hard work.

With nearly all of the 140 employees coming from the Bronx, the business is passionate about representing the borough.

“I'm very proud to represent the Bronx and on every one of my boxes it says ‘Made in 'da Bronx,’” says Nordquist.
