Presenting MR. CORY & COOKIE:
A Dynamic Mother-Son Duo
Meet Cory Nieves, famously known as Mr. Cory, and his spicy mother, Lisa Howard, affectionately referred to as "Cookie." Together, they are the enterprising minds behind Mr. Cory's Cookies, a company that specializes in crafting exquisite, natural gourmet cookies using only the finest ingredients - oh, so very addictive!
From a young age, Mr. Cory envisioned creating a better world for everyone around him. Fueled by his passion for treats and a natural entrepreneurial flair, he became the proud owner of Mr. Cory's Cookies at the tender age of six. Expressing his desire to buy a car and tired of the daily bus commute, young Mr. Cory hatched the ingenious idea of selling cookies to raise funds in his hometown of Englewood, New Jersey.
As his commitment to this new venture grew, his mother, Cookie, played a pivotal role by encouraging him to sell cookies and save money for college persistently. Not only did Mr. Cory stay dedicated to his mission, but he took it a step further by introducing hot cocoa and lemonade to his offerings, broadening the choices for his devoted customers. Over several months, Mr. Cory and Cookie immersed themselves in the art of baking, meticulously testing original cookie recipes.
Their tireless efforts eventually bore fruit with a groundbreaking moment: discovering the ultimate all-natural chocolate chip cookie crafted from premium organic ingredients. This monumental achievement marked the inception of Mr. Cory's Cookies, and from there, the chocolate chip cookie expanded into a diverse collection of 10 more delectable all-natural flavors.
Through his cookies, Mr. Cory forged collaborations with some of the nation's leading companies and brands, including but not limited to Aetna, Barney's, Bloomingdale's, Citibank, J. Crew, Macy's, Mercedes-Benz, Pottery Barn, Ralph Lauren, TOMS, Viacom, Whole Foods, and Williams-Sonoma. Additionally, Mr. Cory and Cookie have made substantial contributions to nonprofits.
Their remarkable journey even caught the attention of CNBC's The Profit, highlighting their achievements. Remarkably, the cookies can now be found on Amazon and Walmart's online platforms and on their own website: https://mrcoryscookies.com/. In a heartwarming gesture, Talk Show Host Ellen DeGeneres gifted Mr. Cory a car adorned with the company's logo during a segment of her TV show in 2014.
Cookie, Cory's mother, has found her meaningful role within the realm of Mr. Cory's Cookies by connecting with single mothers and at-risk children through collaboration with numerous organizations. As part of her future plans, she aspires to become a motivational speaker for single mothers, a journey that currently sees her returning to school to attain her bachelor's degree.
Outside of the business of cookie selling, Mr. Cory's pursuits include his studies at Penn State University, a love for golf, quality time with his cats, trading, and a strong commitment to giving back to the community.
Oh, and getting on his mom's nerves!
