Operation Cookies: Reflecting on 2019 - Our First Year in Business

Hello everyone from Paul and Angie here at Operation Cookies!  We hope everyone had a great holiday season and are enjoying the new year.  We wanted to take a moment and reflect back on the year 2019 and all the wonderful people we met and interacted with online and even some of the local folks here in the Pittsburgh area that we got to meet.  Well, at least look back to June 10th, 2019 – our first day in business.  We weren’t sure what to expect when we went live on that day.  We knew we had the finest quality of cookies backed by our freshness and satisfaction guarantee but we were uncertain of how consumers would react to buying...

Our First Contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project

The first full week of business

Hello everyone, we'd like to take this opportunity to say "Thanks" to everyone who ordered some cookies in our first week of operations - we hope that you are truly enjoying them!  In our first week, we have received 108 orders totaling close to 200 dozen cookies.  We weren't quite prepared for the amount of orders but we burned some midnight oil a few nights to get all the orders out the door. Your generosity in supporting our business is going to go a long way in allowing us to make a nice donation at the end of the month to the Wounded Warrior Project - a program supporting the true heroes in our eyes.  Our belief in supporting this...
