A Successful Cookie Decorating Company | The Flour Pot

Flour Pot site

We recently adjusted the Flour Pot website to add this video, and we were charmed by it! The Flour Pot was featured in this video by FedEx (you’ll see the website Lauren designed for them at 2:29!). See how Margie and Abbey, a mom and daughter duo, run their cookie business. It’s so important for us at Aeolidia to work with creative small businesses, and I wanted to share their video to show you why.

Margie and Abbey’s story is pretty inspirational, going from Margie’s kitchen to being on Oprah’s O List, on The Food Network, and Entertainment tonight, as well as being featured in national magazines, and having a customer list that includes Polo Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue and Spanx. Abbey says:

We had some big breaks early on – with some major national broadcast and magazine publicity.  These also led to a number of major corporate customers, which have really helped us to build our business over the years.

While working with my mom and building our business hasn’t always been easy, it’s always been a great experience.  I couldn’t have done this without my mom.  It’s really worked.  We may not always agree.  But at the end of the day, we’re still mother-daughter.  So everything gets resolved.  Usually with a shopping trip!

While bakeries aren’t our biggest client group, we have worked on website design for bakers over the years, including:

logo cookies

Logo cookies! How fun are these?

I particularly like the logo cookies they make. Wouldn’t these be fun to have for your own business? Perhaps as thank you gifts, to give out at an event (such as an in-store, trunk show, craft fair, class, or party), or for the grand opening of a brick and mortar shop! Any other ideas for logo cookies?

Abbey has kindly offered a coupon for any Aeolidia blog readers to use to get 20% off the large logo cookie size. Please use code “octopus” during checkout until October 4th, 2013 to receive this discount on your own logo cookies!
