What is your favorite food to cook?
A: I love to get together with my family and make cappelletti or “capllet” for short (meaning little hats in Italian). It’s a noodle with a super delicious filling served in chicken broth that my Noni and Papa always made, and it brings back many memories of gatherings around their table when I was young. It’s an all-day affair (because we make so much of it to share with the entire family). I love it because it brings the family together and there is a job for everyone big and small!
K: Chicken Picatta is my favorite food and my husband I love to cook together!
What made you start your business?
A & K: A love for all things cookie/cookie dough and a very inspirational girls trip to Nashville!
What is so unique about your business and what separates you from other cookie dough places?
A & K: The experience is what’s going to set us apart from other cookie dough places. Our idea is for it to be fun, vibrant, upbeat and Instagram worthy!
What is some advice you would give someone if they wanted to start their own business?
A & K: Use your resources, talk to everyone and tell them about what you are doing (you never know who may be able to help or guide you), don’t be afraid to ask for help, always have a backup plan...or two! Most importantly, don’t give up!
If you could be one cookie dough, what would you be?
A: I would be signature crazy dough with edible glitter and lots of sprinkles and chocolate chunks...in a waffle cone!
K: A peanut butter dough with a chocolate drizzle on top!
What is the best opportunity you’ve had in your business?
A & K: The H2 grant opportunity. The support and guidance from Rick and Meghan Hogrefe along with ECEDC, RISE and many others!
