Jamo’s Bagels closing as founder Jameson McQuade seeks new career

Read Time:3 Minute, 11 Second

MIDDLETOWN — In the span of just two years, Jameson McQuade went from baking batches of about 40 bagels in his mom’s kitchen to delivering close to 1,300 bagels to homes and businesses around Aquidneck Island.

Now, he says, people will have to take the train to New York City if they want to get their hands on a delicious New York-style bagel.

Jamo’s Bagels is calling it quits as McQuade, who played basketball, soccer and tennis for Middletown High School, seeks to pursue a career in sports management, his major at St. John’s University in Queens.

Queens is also where McQuade fell in love with New York’s trademark bagels, which are boiled before baking to produce a hard, shiny exterior and a chewy interior. He said he used to go the local bagel shop almost every single morning on his way to class, and when he moved back to Middletown after college, he craved the flavor so much he decided to recreate it himself.
