About Schmaltz Deli

Deli History

  • Anybody can sell corned beef sandwiches in New York. But to sell classic Jewish delicatessen in Naperville, Illinois, you have to create something really delicious and special.  Years of loyal customers will tell you that we’ve got a good thing going.
  • Schmaltz was founded in 2004 in the Chicago suburbs, with the goal of providing an authentic Jewish Deli experience to everyone! Howard Bender, Culinary Institute of America graduate and former chef at the Four Seasons, decided his friends and neighbors deserved a great deli anyway. Our original location serves hundreds overstuffed corned beef and pastrami sandwiches every day – and further satisfies with a great all-around sandwich menu, traditional Jewish favorites, homemade soups and a full-service deli.
  • Schmaltz Online was founded in 2011 to bring that same classic Jewish delicatessen to the millions of Americans outside traditional deli capitals. We ship nationwide!  Think of it as Corned Beef Across America.
