Bagel Business Back in Basement

Soon the bagel will once again be among the options in the Houston Hall Mall. A new independent company, which will be known initially as University Bagel, will open by January 13, filling the void left when Bagel Builders moved out earlier this semester. Ashok Patel, owner and president of the company, said they will mostly serve bagels, sandwiches and drinks during the day, continuing with coffee and desserts in the evening.

Tom Hauber, Associate Director of Student Life and Facilities, said the University hopes they will revive the level of business that had been in the Hall of Flags a baker's dozen years ago when Skolnick's first opened. However, when Houston Hall undergoes renovations as part of the Perelman Quad beginning in May 1998, the building will close its doors for two years and all of the merchants and offices will have to relocate.
