Made in Summit County: Colorado Organic Cookies
Ryan Summerlin October 30, 2013
Name of business or product: Colorado Organic Cookies.
Date business or product was launched: May 2013.
What goods do you make here in Summit County? How much do they cost? I bake big cookies with organic ingredients to sell at the Dillon Farmers Market for $3 each and $30 per dozen. Varieties include chocolate toffee, Colorado cookies, vegan chocolate chip, apricot squares, peanut chocolate chunk, ginger cookies, sugar free HODA (honey, oats, dates and almonds), my version of the chocolate chip cookie (made with flax and oats) and gluten-free varieties each week.
What’s great about making your products here? Being able to offer the only fresh, organic option in the county.
What’s new with your company or product? There are only four farmers markets left this season. It is time to decide if there is enough interest to continue baking or hang up my apron until next summer.
Why do you think it’s important for people in Summit County to buy locally made goods? As a 19-year Breckenridge entrepreneur on my third business, I owe my successes to local support. Community spirit makes Summit County special.
How can people find out more about your products? Colorado Organic Cookies can be found on Facebook, or come visit the Dillon Farmers Market on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. I’m in the parking lot between Main and Buffalo.
