Crockett Cookies featured in Crain’s Chicago Business

The owner of Crockett Cookies is planning to add peanut butter cookies to the line of “lunchroom-style” butter cookies that allowed her to grow from a home baker to a business owner with a staff that produces 5,000 five-cookie packs a week for local Walgreens and Whole Foods stores, where they retail for $3.99 or $4.99.

Crockett wants to be bigger, if not big. In addition to building an e-commerce site and a takeaway area for walk-up customers at her Fulton Street bakery, she wants to sell more cookies to Deerfield-based Walgreens Boots Alliance. “If and when I secure the national account, it will just be way different,” she says. “I’ll probably have to triple the staff.”
