“Why send flowers when you can send cookies?” says One Cookie, One Cause founder, Kim Kalan.
The business model they have chosen is one of the most successful models available – carry out and delivery of pizza – but they deliver cookies!
One Cookie claim to study the model, have torn it apart and skinned it with a cool, engaging brand and offered up a business with a cause and a product that is fresh and fun.
By choosing this model, One Cookie believe they have entered the hyper-disciplined world of delivery and an operational promise that if you order from them, you know you are going to get out of the oven, gooey, made from scratch cookies each and every time.
Their business model is simple, efficient, interesting and socially rewarding.
Shipping cookies across the nation is also available via UPS as they have formulated the cookies to have an “out of the oven, gooey in the middle” taste for several days with a secret ingredient that is not a preservative.
“These cookies are made from scratch just like your Grandma made them,” says co-founder, Jane Rabe.
Each ingredient is measured out and mixed with perfection and each batch is baked right before they are delivered or shipped.
There is a larger cause One Cookie strive to help with…”One Cookie will offer jobs to women living in poverty where the pay is a livable sustainable wage along with a mentor to give the women we hire endless support to a new way of life,” says founder, Kim Kalan.
The business plan is to hire women as bakers, customer service reps and delivery drivers.
The One Cookie website will include a blog that will follow the story of the women they hire cycling out of poverty along with the day-to-day life of running a small female owned business.
A social networking launch is also planned to run side by side with the blog in hopes of turning the stories into an inspirational book.
