The heart and soul of our operation, our Bleecker Street Shop, is where Bantam Bagels had all of our firsts — our first customer, our first storefront, our first shared bite of NYC, and it has been the inspiration for all of the new exciting Bantam-based ideas we’ve brought to market.
Being here on Bleecker Street, the epicenter of both our innovation and brand has taught us a heck of a lot. It’s here where we learned how to hustle nonstop to stay afloat, how to go above and beyond for customers, and how this city’s vibrancy, higher than high expectations, and attitude are what truly makes a New York bagel so great.
By far the most entrepreneurial lesson we’ve learned along the way is that it’s not all about selling, but about connecting. Food is so personal and we feel lucky to be able to connect with our customers every day in the most personal of ways through the products we take so much pride in making here on Bleecker Street.
Thank you to all of our Bleecker Street neighbors, our core every-day customers, and to those who have traveled across the US to visit our little slice of NYC. Still bursting with heart, hustle and — of course — delicious bagels, this shop is for you!
