Monica’s Gourmet Cookies

In the last 23 years, Monica Mitidieri has taken Monica’s Gourmet Cookies from a personal, creative outlet to a business that has boomed far beyond her expectations. That’s thanks to her dedication to perfecting her signature recipe to achieve a delicious product that has grabbed the attention — and delighted the taste buds — of everyone from West Michigan to nationally known clients. Her handcrafted cookies are sold online and in more than 65 retail stores.
Mitidieri says in anxious or stressful times as this, people want chocolate. “It’s just that simple,” she says.
“Cookies are a happy moment and we like happy here at Monica’s.” Through her Corporate Client Program that she added last spring, she’s been able to bring more of that happiness to more people, and as a result, has more than doubled her revenue in less than a year.
