Rebuild Portland Bagelworks

$10,835 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 149 people in 28 months
Today, a day like any other day, turned into a nightmare. Nearly 40 minutes after being told nearby workers had hit a gas line, our bagel shop exploded. Although we are fortunate that we had evacuated and our staff did not get hurt, there is nothing left. Gone. Our years of work could all be for nothing, if we can't be up and running soon.
In addition, our team of bagel and sandwich makers are left with no source of income. No way to pay their bills.
Yes, there was insurance. But much of the equipment came with the building. And without the equipment, we can't do business.
Your help can save our business... And our team's means of living.
We thank you for your help.

Can I just say Vicki it takes a long time for insurance companies to pay out and in the interim they need food?

Hi Rik, When I moved to SE Portland a year ago, I methodically searched for a good bagel shop. Then I found your place. To me, the best bagels in Portland. Whenever I needed bagels, I rode my bike across town to your shop or jumped on the bus. I NEVER bought bagels anywhere else and I always told your staff that yours are my favorite bagels. I was shocked and saddened when I heard about your misfortune. When you're up and running again, I will seek you out...wherever you are in Portland. Best of luck!

Seriously, best bagels in Portland. Nowhere else even comes close. I hope you’re able to reopen and regain some semblance of normalcy.
