Four months after the famed H&H Bagels storefront closed down on the Upper West Side, eight months after it filed for bankruptcy, and a year and a half after the bagel company's owner was convicted of tax evasion, the Wall Street Journal reports that H&H faces eviction from its last plant and storefront. This plant in Midtown West pumps out all of the company's bagels for sale here in Manhattan and also for grocery stores around the world now that their New Jersey plant is shuttered, and a judge last week ruled to allow the eviction proceedings to move forward.
The landlord, which is actually a limited partnership controlled by H&H's owner, has also filed for bankruptcy protection and hopes to sell the building. An eviction decision will be tied to the sale of the property.
