3 brothers, 4 locations
Good news for fans of hamantaschen and rye bread who live just west of the Galleria area. Three Brothers Bakery has quietly opened its new location in the Walgreens-anchored center at 574 Chimney Rock Rd.
Located in a former Murphy's Deli, the new Three Brothers occupies a 1,300-square-foot space. The bakery, a staple of Houston's Jewish community, serves breads, cakes, cookies, pies and other items. It will also offer a full range of coffee drinks.

Bobby Jucker traces his roots in the baking business back five generations to Chrzanow, Poland circa 1825, according to the bakery. His father Sigmund immigrated to America with his brothers Sol and Max after all three survived the Holocaust.
Tanglewood is the bakery's first new location since opening an outpost on Washington Avenue in 2014. More recently, the bakery's main location on Braeswood suffered damage during the Tax Day flood in 2016 and Hurricane Harvey in 2017. In 2018, Three Brothers received the SBA Phoenix Award for Small Business Disaster Recovery in recognition of the resilience Jucker and his wife demonstrated in the face of so many challenges.
"The response from the Tanglewood community has been so incredibly welcoming," Jucker added. "We’re thrilled to be in this neighborhood and look forward to becoming a part of the fabric of Tanglewood.”
