Who knew that two Italian guys from Hoboken would transform the bagel world of Connecticut and beyond?
In 1990, Between Rounds had its start in Vernon, Connecticut. This first store, owned by Jerry Puiia, was patterned on a store that Jerry’s dad (Vito) and his brother (Joe) owned in Hoboken, New Jersey. One year later, Jerry and his brother Joe opened a second Bagel Stop in South Windsor, Connecticut.
Since the beginning, the Puiia brothers have manufactured and sold their own bagels, a hallmark which really sets them apart from other cafés. The business has evolved to a four stores, an ever expanding wholesale business providing fresh bagels to well known super markets and also franchising of the brand.
