About the Company: 

Founded in March 2009, Kookies by Keirsten was born out of a passion for baking that ran through my family, a cherished legacy from my mother and grandmother. What started as a homemade Elmo cookie for my preschooler's birthday quickly blossomed into a thriving business. Despite initial inexperience, my creativity and a cherished tea cake recipe laid the foundation for our success.

Over the years, my techniques improved, and the demand for my themed cookies grew, confirming that "there's always an occasion for a cookie." Balancing work, motherhood, and entrepreneurship was challenging, but my commitment to my passion led to the establishment of Kookies by Keirsten. Today, we are proud to have served over 5,000 cookies last year, gaining recognition from established firms and local celebrities alike.
