About Us

Our History:

Hi, we’re Jason and Stefanie Schwingle. In 2013, we started a blog called the Rochesteriat to highlight the great things happening in the city. We loved getting to know business owners and continued to look for ways to support local.
Over the last several years, our goals and business plans have evolved into what we now call MetroPops which launched in 2017.
Keep in mind, we’re still working on this site. It’s what we love to do and we’re learning new things everyday. Stick with us because we’re in it for the long-term!

MetroPops, a Marketing Agency:

MetroPops is a boutique marketing agency dedicated to local. Our goal is to partner with the most unique businesses in our area. These are merchants that exemplify the creative Rochester spirit and energy. Let’s work together and inspire the community to support local!

MetroPops, a City Guide:

One of the ways we’re most excited to support local businesses is through our growing City Guide. Explore by region or category, find a new place to love! The guide will continue to grow so keep checking back as more businesses are added.
