THB Bagelry & Deli Opening at McHenry Row in Locust Point

| January 15, 2023 | 0 Comments

Popular Baltimore area-based bagel shop THB Bagelry & Deli has announced it will open its seventh location at McHenry Row in Locust Point. Iron Rooster recently downsized its space at the shopping center, and THB will occupy approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of the 7,000 sq. ft. retail suite that was previously entirely Iron Rooster. THB will take over the northern corner of the space that bookends the apartment building and shopping center.

THB, which was originally called Towson Hot Bagels after starting in Towson, now has locations in Towson, Canton, Charles Village, Columbia, Owings Mills, and Timonium.

THB is owned by the Scotto cousins Tony, Ciro, Orinana, and Gennaro from Southern Italy. They bought the original location in Towson in 2008.

The bagel shop made the Locust Point announcement this morning on WJZ Sunday News at 8am for National Bagel Day and confirmed the news this morning to through email. THB will be giving away free bagels through its app all day today.

Asked about the decision to open a location in South Baltimore, CEO Tony Scotto told, “We have been in love with the area for the last 11 years and we have so many loyal customers asking for a location and we are extremely happy to be able to do so.”

He added, “My family and I are exited to open our seventh location and our third in the city and keep growing our THB Family!”

The menu at THB features fresh bagels, breakfast and deli bagel sandwiches, coffee, cream cheeses, omelettes, paninis, soups, salads, and sides.

THB bagels are also featured in cafes around Baltimore such as Urban Deli and Order & Chaos Coffee.

Work is already underway on the new THB. Iron Rooster remains open. THB has not yet set an opening date.

The 7,000 sq. ft. McHenry Row space, which will now be Iron Rooster and THB, has changed sizes and tenants several times since the shopping center opened 11 years ago. It was originally one large Greene Turtle, and later became Greene Turtle and Piaza after Greene Turtle downsized in 2015 and Piaza took over 2,000 sq. ft. of its space. Iron Rooster took over both suites in 2017, and now the space is being subdivided again to add THB.
