We had the good fortune of connecting with Ren and Caroline Blanco and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ren and Caroline, what is the most important factor behind your success?
We think the most important factor behind the success of our brand is staying real and authentic in everything we do.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
On the surface we are a cookie company, but it’s more than that. We are here to bridge our love of music and cookies to create a whole new experience!
We want our cookies to bring back those nostalgic feelings of you eating something delicious when you were a kid. We hope to one day be that nostalgic memory that people can look back on.
There have definitely been struggles along the way for us. Our biggest struggle so far has been learning how to run and grow a business. We made a lot of mistakes but we realized that those mistakes were actually valuable lessons.
To go from not knowing what we’re doing to hearing that we’ve become someone’s favorite cookie is what we’re most proud of.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
