When cookies makes dough

When cookies makes dough

Ontario cookie manufacturer transforms from niche market supplier into a key player in the Canadian co-packing and third-party cookie manufacturing markets. Everybody loves cookies. And some, like Jason Brass, president and owner of Terra Cotta Food Ltd. in Georgetown, Ont., seem to love cookies so much that he had to buy a company. Founded in 1984 by Pat Coe as Terra Cotta Cookies, the company used to simply bake and sell cookies to schools to raise funds. It was a profitable business that grew from one school customer to a couple of thousand, but by 2012 Coe wanted to retire.
Since purchasing the business, Brass says he is proud he has been able to grow the employee base from 12 to 42 local-area people, as well as outgrowing the original facility and soon to undergo its third expansion in just six years.
