Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café, the unique bakery café and bagel shop with locations throughout Connecticut, has recently partnered with Joseph Family Markets and the ShopRites of Canton and West Hartford, Connecticut to supply their signature bagels to ShopRite customers.
The two ShopRite stores, owned by Chuck and Debbie Joseph of Joseph Family Markets, are located at 110 Albany Turnpike in Canton and 46 Kane Street in West Hartford. As a family owned business, they are proud to partner with Between Rounds, which is also family owned, and will offer Between Rounds’ bagels in the bakery departments of both stores.
Joseph Family Markets ispassionate in its search for high-quality food products from Connecticut’s best small businesses. After hearing about Between Rounds Bagels, Chuck Joseph had his management team and associates try the bagels, which were met with rave reviews. Joseph made the decision to carry the product in his stores and the partnership was born.
Between Rounds bagels join a select group of other Connecticut-made products under the Joseph Family Markets Connecticut’s Own banner. “As a family-owned business, we forge partnerships with other Connecticut food artisans to bring their unique and flavorful products – from bagels to organic, gluten-free chips and salsa to micro batch ice cream and everything in between – to our customers,” explained Joseph. “We’re proud to feature Between Rounds bagels as part of Connecticut’s Own, found here every day, under one roof.”
Between Rounds is the brainchild of the Puiia brothers, who established cafés in Vernon, South Windsor, Manchester and Tolland. The Puiia hallmark is manufacturing and selling their own bagels, which set them apart from other cafés. The popularity of their bagels inspired the Puiias to partner with independent grocers. The bagels are delivered to grocers fully baked so no additional labor is required of the bakery department.
Between Rounds has established partnerships with 22 grocers in Connecticut. Independent grocer owners or store managers interested in carrying Between Rounds bagels may contact Jerry or Joe Puiia at (860) 291-0323.
