Remember the last time you walked into a room filled with the smell of freshly-baked cookies? You probably made a beeline for those cookies as soon as you laid eyes on them, and it likely left you with a glowing, positive memory of the experience.
Cookies can be a memorable part of your customers’ experience, offering them a warm, familiar comfort that they’ll look forward to each time they visit your business. So when it comes to pleasing your customers, offering cookies is always the right move. But with so many types of cookies out there, it can be challenging to find a cookie company that’s easy to work with and will be a real hit with your customers. Here are a few tips for finding the right cookie to serve your customers.
Buying local products is important because it helps support the local economy. Local companies are also more likely to use local ingredients, which are often fresher and of higher quality. Plus, your customers will appreciate it. As more and more consumers are interested in social responsibility and doing good, they’ll be glad to know that you were thinking about your choice to support your community.
Go for the Dough and Bake Them Fresh
We all know the difference between a day-old cookie and a freshly-baked one. Not to mention, the sweet smell that fills the space is worth the extra step of baking cookies in-house. For businesses, the best way to provide fresh-baked cookies without spending hours mixing them from scratch is to buy pre-made cookie dough. With the dough ready for baking, all you have to do is put it in the oven for 10 minutes, and you have a fresh plate of warm, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth cookies. It’s a small amount of effort for a tasty reward. Your customers will be incredibly impressed that you took the time to bake them in-house. (You can “forget” to mention that you didn’t make them from scratch.)
Make it Easy on Yourself
You want to provide your customers with the best cookies, but it has to be easy, too. After all, you have tons of other important tasks to do when running your business. To make things easier for yourself and your staff, look for a company that delivers pre-portioned cookie dough that doesn’t require any preparation and is easy to store. Elliotts of Montana, for example, provides made-to-order cases of frozen cookie dough pucks. All you have to do is line them up on a cookie sheet and bake them. The cookie dough pucks last for up to one year in the freezer, so you won’t have to worry about them going to waste if you don’t use them right away.
Find a Cooperative Provider
It’s important to find a cookie company that can work seamlessly with you and your business’ processes. With some giant, wholesale cookie companies, flexibility can be limited, especially when it comes to quantities and delivery. Look for a cookie provider that prioritizes customer service and can provide customized, personalized ordering. Local, family-run companies like Elliotts of Montana are good choices because their employees care deeply about the quality of their product and developing personal relationships with their customers.
