"A delicious cookie made with natural ingredients! Exceptional quality and I’m so excited they are now being sold on online. I truly believe in this product so much so that I’m happy to give to my 2 year old :)"
How We Started
Sitting at a coffee shop one day, Akiva Resnikoff noticed a plethora of patrons purchasing a baked good along with their cup of coffee. A lightbulb moment hit; could he create a bakery delicious caffeinated cookie?
With a background in the functional beverage industry, a certificate in pastry arts, and the help of his mother who’s an amazing baker herself, the double chocolate coffee Awaken Baked was finally perfected after over 60 trial and error batches!
As a passionate, bootstrapping one-man band, for several years Resnikoff maintained a full time day job while baking, selling and delivering his Awaken Baked to cafes in the SF Bay Area in the evenings and wee morning hours. As the demand for the cookies grew, he moved from a fresh daily baked product to package form, hired a contract bakery to handle manufacturing, and dedicated himself full time to expanding his little cookie company.
Today, headquartered in Portland Oregon, The Cookie Department’s line of five Fully Functional cookies are enjoyed across the country and can be found in grocery stores, college and tech campuses, cafes, climbing gyms, juice and smoothie bars, airports, hospital cafeterias, convenience stores and movie theaters.
