MEET THE KOOKY COOKIE CREATOR
Hi! I’m Margarita, founder of Kooky Cookies, a minority and woman-owned gourmet stuffed cookie company. I’m a wife, mom of four, serial entrepreneur, and a passionate carb pusher.
From Weight Loss Coach to Diet Saboteur
Prior to the pandemic, I worked as a successful health coach and serial entrepreneur. COVID-19 really turned things topsy-turvy, and I wanted to help make the world a little sweeter, so I started my (second) cookie business Kooky Cookies! A lot of us have put on weight during the pandemic, so if we’re going to eat our feelings, I wanted to create a cookie worth those calories. (No judgment or shame - it’s been rough!)
All Paths lead to Kooky Cookies
This isn’t my first cookie business. I had a cookie business when I was in college where I majored in hotel & restaurant management, before going on to culinary school for 2 years in San Francisco (Dorky pic attached). After meeting my husband, a Marine Corps veteran, and moving to Knoxville, TN, we bought a small restaurant. The restaurant closed after about a year, so we opened a franchised casual restaurant in West Knoxville (a super popular retail location). After establishing that business, my husband and I helped the national franchise develop a successful corporate catering program that’s been implemented in all of their stores nationwide. I’ve always loved food and I’m grateful for the opportunity to bake a little sweetness for you and yours.
Kooky Cookie Grows
A self proclaimed sugar ant, Priscilla Deets, has been enjoying Kooky Cookies for years. Margarita created a cookie addict through sharing her amazing creations. Within months of the inception of Kooky Cookie, Priscilla began helping to fill the many Christmas orders that were being shipped nationwide that first year. It didn’t take long for her to realize what an amazing company she was working for, and she decided she wanted to join Margarita in this kooky adventure!
