In Bozeman, there are always a plethora of new restaurants opening their doors, while many others shut off the lights for the last time. Surviving the first year as a restaurant is no easy task; continuing a twenty-five year legacy is a true testament to a restaurant’s food, customers, and staff. When Bagelworks founders Amelia Cain-Kerscher and

Gary Dipaolo first came to Bozeman, they filled a hole where Bozeman was lacking, opening the town’s first bagel shop. Twenty-five years later, Bagelworks continues to serve Bozeman with New-York Style bagels, boiled every morning at the crack of dawn, along with a variety of cream cheeses which are made fresh in-house. Owner Mike Kerscher attributes a large amount of Bagelworks’ success and longevity to the customers who make the shop what it is today. While many restaurants are quick to begin servicing their niche, Bagelworks is unique in that it has always enjoyed a wide array of patrons who keep the business lively. From students to families, Bagelworks is supported by a loyal customer base in the community, as well newcomers to Bozeman, and travelers passing through.
