I've been baking "fully functional" cookies locally for two years. I want to create new lines & extend my reach beyond the Bay Area.

GOOGLE, GLUTEN FREE and New 1.5oz Cookies!

2 likes

Dear Kickstarter backers,

I hope your 2014 has been a good one so far. It's been a crazy wonderful couple of months at The Cookie Department. In January we launched our 1.5oz cookie we call "break size". These were created to meet the needs of our biggest customer, Google and similar commercial accounts. But the response to our break size cookie has been tremendous, so we've started providing the option to our retail customers and online addicts!

Next month we're finally launching our gluten free "Cherry Bomb", a first to market probiotic double chocolate chip cherry cookie! We took the time we needed to get this one just right. We think our fans will find that it was worth the wait!

We've been making great headway with our distribution network. We're in talks with UNFI, the world's largest distributor of natural products. In April we're meeting with Costco Northern California, hearing from Virgin America Airlines and closing a deal with Barnes & Noble College Bookstores (with over 700 college campuses in the US!) Meantime, it seems every week we add another hi-tech campus to our roster of happy cookie customers.

These developments have been the result of a lot of hard work and long hours, great customers who keep coming back for more, and of course our enthusiastic backers, especially the early ones like you!

If you're on Instagram, be sure and check us out @CookieDept and consider following us for all the latest! And if you'd like to try our new break size cookies, go to http://thecookiedepartment.bigcartel.com/. Use coupon code KICKSTART (valid through April 30th) to receive a 20% discount on your next order.

Thank you again for all your support!

All the best,

Hello TCD supporters,

This year has been a crazy (good!) one at The Cookie Department. Google is considering stocking their micro kitchens with TDC and purchasers at Raley's Supermarkets, Target, Virgin Airlines and Barnes & Noble College Book Stores are talking to us for 2014. The Cookie Department is looking forward to a great year ahead with all signs pointing north!

As some of you already know, we've started working with a west coast distribution company called Tony's Fine Foods. Our product is now available through e-commerce sites like abesmarket.com and opensky.com, as well as through our own web store, http://thecookiedepartment.bigcartel.com/. We receive orders from around the country and are starting to see some interest in Canada and even Europe.

The holidays are fast approaching. We are offering our Kickstarter supporters a special discount on all holiday orders. If you decide to send cookies to friends and family this holiday season, order online and enter in coupon code CUZM6T to receive an instant 20% off on all orders. Feel free to share this coupon code with friends and family, and use it as often as you like until the end of 2013. You can order cookies here: http://thecookiedepartment.bigcartel.com/

Thank you again for all your support! It's because of you that we're still making cookies and sharing the love.

All the best,

Akiva Co-founder and COO The Cookie Department
