Our Name and Why We Got Started
The name Maria is very special to me because it is the name of my daughter, whom was named after my great grandmother who Was born in Italy and had a great passion for food.
I grew up in Barre City and love it here! There used to be a bagel place in town called Sammie's Bagels, and they were great. They ended up closing down and since I have not been satisfied with the bagel options in town and have decided to open my own bagel business. I began experimenting with bagel making in early 2014 while I worked a job that was beginning to bring me down. I wanted to finally use my Degree in business and fulfill my dream of being an entrepreneur. I began to do some research and got the ball rolling. I started off selling directly to customers through Facebook, then I started selling them at the Central Market and now they are sold also at Espresso Bueno, Central Vermont Medical Center, U-32 school, Roland's Mini Mart, Pump and Pantry and we are constantly looking for new places to have them sold so get in touch with us if you are interested.
