Two years ago (seems like a lifetime ago) I visited Akiva Resnikoff at his original cookie bakery in Emeryville, California. At the time he was making a few functional cookies and delivering locally to a few cafes and stores. With a goal to grow, The Cookie Department took some smart steps:
- Raised funds by running a successful Kickstarter campaign.
- Decided to manufacture the cookies collaborating with a co-packer, letting them scale production while focusing on sales.
- Connected with both local and large-scale retailers.
The department reports that its healthy cookies are spreading far and wide. Get the update here from Akiva…
