Broadway Bakes

Broadway Bakes, a fundraising program we created this spring to raise money for Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS, raised over $8000 for BC/EFA. Broadway stars worked behind our counter for a week and donated their time, tips, and memorabilia from their shows in support. We also donated half of proceeds from that time window to Broadway Cares.

Our One-Year Anniversary / Birthday Bash!

Broadway is all about dreaming big! Growing up in Lincoln, Nebraska, theatre was my passion and Broadway was my dream. In 2008, I moved to New York City to pursue that dream on a full-time basis. My life was filled with acting by day and making cookies at night to relieve stress and fuel my creativity. You see, my goal wasn’t to make good chocolate chip cookies – I wanted to try new things; experiment, create, and challenge myself to make something fresh and original. Soon, baking cookies became an obsession and with the encouragement and support of my friends and family, Schmackary’s was born. At first, I started by selling cookies from my Hell’s Kitchen apartment, and in a year our storefront at 45th & 9th opened in May 2012, with the goal of making incredible, interesting, and innovative gourmet cookies.

One year, thousands of smiles, and over $1 million in sales later, Schmackary’s has officially made it on Broadway! Thanks to my staff for caring, to Broadway for embracing us, and especially to all of our loyal customers for making our 1st year a huge success!

As Frank Sinatra says, “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” Well stay tuned – because Schmackary’s has even bigger dreams for the future!

Watch out cupcakes, we’re coming to get you!
