THB Bagelry & Deli is set to open this weekend in the Mill Station Shopping Center of Owings Mills its largest eatery, which is designed for “the post-COVID dining era,” according to a news release.
Formerly known as Towson Hot Bagels, the new location — the second one to open in less than a year — will have contactless kiosks for ordering and a walk-up window for takeout. Owner and CEO Tony Scotto began offering contactless and carryout service during the coronavirus pandemic.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for June 7 at 10 a.m., and will be attended by County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. and Comptroller Peter Franchot. The first 25 customers will get a free breakfast, according to a release.
To celebrate PRIDE month, THB is offering rainbow bagels, along with their new asiago Old Bay bagels and “sweet and heat” schmear, infused with honey and Old Bay Hot Sauce.
The new location, with indoor and outdoor dining options, was designed by Naples-based architectural design firm Manuarino to “reflect the piazzas of Southern Italy,” according to a release. Manuarino also designed the Columbia location.
THB Bagelry celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019 after opening its first location in Towson in 1999. It has since expanded to locations in Columbia, Canton, Charles Village and Timonium. Scotto, who emigrated from Italy, owns the chain along with his brother, sister and cousin.
