Homewood Bagel Company (HBC) is a family-owned bagel shop founded in January 2017. HBC is known for its handcrafted, “baked fresh daily” bagels made in Homewood, Alabama.
HBC owners Joe and Ginny are raising their four kids in Homewood, and while they couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, weekends often found them venturing to surrounding areas in search of a good bagel.
One such morning, they thought to themselves, “Why doesn’t Homewood have a bagel shop?” And the idea for HBC was born. After nearly a year of testing recipes, doing tons of market research, and baking hundreds of batches of bagels, they’ve landed on the perfect bagel – soft and chewy on the inside, with a crunchy, blistered outside crust.
