Labor Day Celebration
Labor Day is a day of celebration dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It’s a day to pay tribute to the contributions workers have made to strengthen the economic well-being of our country. And this labor day, we’re able to celebrate a new milestone for Carol and all of Carol’s Cookies employees.
The morning after Labor Day we’ll be cracking eggs bright and early in a new, bigger bakery. We feel this grand opening day adequately represents the hard work of our company. From starting modestly 35 years ago in her own kitchen, Carol went from selling cookies at local shops like Michael’s Hot Dogs and Sunset Foods to being distributed in over 30 states. Now, Carol’s Cookies has a staff of 25 (and growing!), and in 2013 produced nearly 3 million cookies, a number we hope to surpass this year.
So this holiday weekend, we’re going to enjoy our day off and reflect on how far we’ve come as a company and as individuals. It’s bittersweet to move from a location with so many fond memories, but we’re excited to increase our trade and continue to evolve, while (thankfully) our cookies remain the same.
Happy Labor Day to all of you- we hope you’re able to relax and celebrate your own hard work and accomplishments.
