Our Team

You are the...

Our diverse and talented team are the backbone of Schmackary’s.

Making incredible and interesting cookies is our forte, but we also want Schmackary’s to feel like your home away from home. We hand-pick from hundreds of applicants to find the very best people who not only love what we do, but love engaging with people.

We know New York isn’t known for having great customer service, and we think that’s a shame.

We’ll treat you like a welcomed guest, rather than just “order #352.” You may just be in it for the cookies, but for us it goes deeper than that; we think you’ll appreciate the difference.
