Bristol County is about to step its bagel game up in 2022 thanks to a Rhode-Island based, family-owned business crossing the Rhode Island border to South Attleboro.

Providence Bagel is notorious for serving up the freshest batch of bagels in the state, and now owner Chris Wietecha is excited to bring his famous baked good to his home state.

Around seven years ago, when Wietecha returned to the East Coast after living in Arizona, he quickly realized there weren’t any good bagel shops in the Providence area.

“I started doing some research, I visited places around the country, and I decided that Providence needed a bagel shop,” he said.

Five years later, Wietecha is the proud owner of four different locations and has broken ground for his fifth in South Attleboro.

“Our secret is our recipe from an old school baker from Long Island named Bob Iacolla,” Wietecha said.

Wietecha credits his traditional recipes and his traditional way of doing things for the success of his little idea that turned into a thriving small business.

“There are certain things that a lot of places where the world cuts corners, but we don’t cut corners,” he said.

No microwaves here, just freshly baked goods and delicious coffee.
