About Us

The Union Bagel Co. Story

Since 2012, Union Bagel Company has been serving Portland by following a simple mission: To bring the best traditional bagels to Portland, Maine. That focus, combined with a dedication to create an enterprise that is both supportive and dependent upon a strong local community, has been the key to UBC’s success.

Started by Owner/Baker, Paul Farrell, out of the Portland Public Market in 2012, UBC has grown into a Portland mainstay, through hard work, ingenuity, and the help of friends, family, and the local community. But most importantly, UBC has grown through a dedication to making great bagels. Our bagels exhibit the full flavor and rich texture that you can only get through the combination of quality ingredients, organic flour, and traditional recipes. The result is a real bagel.
