The BROOKIE COOKIE is an all natural chocolate cookie, that looks and tastes like a brownie. It has all natural ingredients such as unbleached unbromated flour, vanilla, cocoa and sugar. Made without preservatives, these cookies really pack a flavor punch! The name BROOKIE COOKIE has a double meaning. Brownie + Cookie = Brookie hence "The BROOKIE COOKIE" was born and we are located here in Brooklyn New York, how about that!
The BROOKIE COOKIE started in 2009 as an idea to have "cookie favors" at events by me, "Brookie" Nycole Sanders. Being in the fashion industry for over 10 years in design and product development, I have the passion, drive and expertise to create unique ideas and bring them to market. After leaving my most recent corporate product development position at Victoria's Secret PINK, I wanted to develop a product and enter the world of Entrepreneurship. Starting over was very intimidating at first, but once I was able to utilize my skills from my previous position into this new brand, it became just like breathing, and I just followed my instincts. The food industry is a very saturated market so the pressure to create something that is unique, stands out and that my customer loved was imperative. Honestly, starting without any formal culinary training to develop the recipe, was like being a mad scientist in a lab mixing, measuring, waiting and tasting. My mother used to bake for me all the time growing up, and still does. So the inspiration from that encouraged me to make this dream a reality! She was always baking, cooking and creating. Destiny has definitely brought me to you with this product, as so many customers, bloggers and fans, tell me that this cookie is the best they have EVER tasted. Whoa! The positive feedback has been so overwhelming and I am so happy and continue to use that feedback from blogger reviews, facebook and twitter as a stepping stone to develop more products and ideas.
There have been so many reviews on my website, where people write that their family members fought over the last cookie or how happy they were when they got their cookies for the first time, and how AMAZING they were. Some even say they are better than..."Oreos". Nothing in my soul gives me more satisfaction, than a happy customer!
We have been in business since March 2010 and just celebrated our 3rd birthday on March 26th, 2013. Each year we make strides in development by adding new products and services.This year we are aiming to service the public directly by setting up shop in a new storefront location in Brooklyn! It is an intimidating feat and we are up to the challenge. After all, anything you set your heart and mind to you can achieve! In order to continue to grow each year, we have new goals and milestones set to reach. We are claiming 2013 as our YEAR! We want to make our product available to the immediate public and expand our online fan base this Summer. This promotion is to raise funds for equipment, raw goods and construction.
Nothing in life comes easy, like with this business, and the ultimate reward is watching it grow and progress through blood, sweat and tears. The main goal is to make our customers happy. Starting a small business and developing a brand takes a lot of determination, dedication, persistence and possessing a "never give up" spirit! This product has been so positively received by our fans and customers, that we doggedly continue on from that positive reinforcement and support. They make it so worth while!
The BROOKIE COOKIE has been sold in select retail locations in the Brooklyn area and often sell out at demos and off the shelves. We know that this new store location will be a welcome commodity to the Brooklyn community. Ultimately the goal is to create jobs and open multiple locations...what a great way to stimulate the economy!
UNIQUE Ways to serve your BROOKIE COOKIES
Risks and challenges
RISKS & CHALLENGES are minimal, since we are in the shipping business, we have the experience to know:
1. How long our product will stay fresh. The development and testing of this product has yielded solid results, to where the receipt of each package is "out of the oven" fresh, every time!
2. The delivery time. We ship using the USPS, often utilizing flat rate shipping. This method increases the likelihood that your package will be delivered with a friendly smile from your neighborhood postal carrier, on time instead of dropped on your door step. Each package comes with a tracking number and a shipping confirmation email will be sent so that you can track your package online.
3. Once you receive your package, it will stay fresh longer if you pop it in the refrigerator until eaten or gifted. This is perfect if you have an event to order for or if you want to give your reward to a friend. The BROOKIE COOKIE guarantees that you can freeze your cookies safely for up to 3 months.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
