Having grown up in southern California, and after many moves throughout the country, Sue Thompson moved to Montana in the mid-1970’s and soon established herself as a pediatric physical therapist.
In 1993, Sue decided what Missoula really needed was a bagel shop! The fact that she had a solid career and didn't really know how to run a restaurant did not seem to be a deterrent. A large space in downtown Missoula was found, and the project began. Sean Thompson (her son) was the very first bagel baker and thanks to his expertise and diligance the bagels were perfect from the very first batch.
Sue eventually got out of the therapy profession and concentrated solely on making Bagels on Broadway the very best bagel shop west of Manhattan (New York, not Montana). With eternal thanks to the great staff and loyal customers, Bagels On Broadway has become a true Missoula downtown fixture, recognized by people across the state and across the country.
