Finagle-A-Bagel started out as a small eatery located in Boston's famous Faneuil Hall Marketplace food court. This first establishment, designed by rfa, gained immediate popularity for producing the very best bagels in Boston. rfa was subsequently retained to design a prototype to be built throughout Boston's metropolitan area. Subsequently, Finagle-A-Bagel stores opened nearly everywhere, offering a creative array of bagels, toppings and supplements. Ultimately, rfa designed the first ten of these. The entire chain was later sold for a very large but undisclosed sum of money.
