our story

We created Schmear with a simple goal in mind, bring community and families together one bagel at a time. Most families have their traditions and memories that make them special. For us, growing up in a Jewish family, the memories we hold dearest always have a common focal point, the food. Whether it was holiday meals or our weekly bagel gatherings, food has a way of bringing those moments back to life for us. We are excited to share a part of our family and culture with the community through Schmear.

Schmear was founded by husband and wife team Matt and Lindsay Aronson. Lindsay has over 17 years in the food service industry and is the General Manager and Lead Baker. Matt is a Marine Corps veteran and registered pharmacist. He is our lead “Schmear-ologist”, specializing in cream cheese flavor and sandwich creation. Together, they created Schmear from the ground up. Schmear is a non-franchised, locally and veteran owned establishment in Queen Creek, Arizona. It is an original concept designed to embody qualities from bagel shops, Jewish delis, and coffeehouses. Customers will be able to get all their breakfast and lunch needs met in an environment that is modern and welcoming. We will always strive to put the customers first and ensure an exceptional experience every time you visit. We are excited to be part of the community and can’t wait to meet all of you.
