What We Do

(we bake cookies - big fresh ones!)

We hand make our dough each week, then bake to perfection these big beautiful cookies!  There’s a slight crunch on the outside when you first bite in…but then you get to the middle and it’s a whole new world of ooey-gooey goodness!  It’s everything you love about cookies, they are baked right in front of you and served truly fresh right out of the oven, the way it’s supposed to be!

How We Got Here

(because our customers love us)

We started very small, one guy behind a 6-foot fold up table at a local market in December, 2019.  Things started off great, what was first an idea quickly became a local phenomenon!  However, life threw us all a curveball with the covid-19 pandemic, and after just 6 pop-ups we were forced to change to a delivery only model.  The beginning of the delivery only era was one of true grit and grind.  There were 4 of us at the time working our tails off out of a shared industrial kitchen space, mapping routes by hand, taking orders by DM on instagram, we were doing everything we could to get cookies to the people…then delivery took off!  Within a few months of delivery only we decided it was time to take the next step, we wanted a new space to call home.  So we turned to you, our loving community for help, and boy did you answer the call!  Our crowdfunding campaign hit it’s goal in just 30 hours!!  This was such a special moment, a special thanks to those who took part in that campaign, you will always have a special place in our hearts.  Fast forward to June, 2021 and we finally opened our doors at our first storefront – where we go from here only time will tell, but we have big dreams and big plans, we can’t wait to find out!

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: we will never sacrifice on quality, we will always create lasting connections with our customers, and we will only treat people fairly and with respect.

How do I become a taste tester for Lion Cub's?

Taste tester?!  That’s right!  

 

All you have to do is give us a follow on Instagram or Facebook @LionCubsCookies, then look out for posts and stories where we ask if you wanna come in for some free cookies to try out!  

 

The reason we do this you ask?  We believe firmly it’s about you, we only want to give you a nice, fresh cookie you won’t forget.  So, this is our way of having you tell us what you like.

How do you handle known allergens (peanuts and tree nuts)?

Anytime there is a cookie with anytime type of nut in it, it is either indicated in the cookies name, or it is mentioned below the cookie in the description (for both online and in-store orders).

 

In addition, we take several precautions to not cross contaminate while in the kitchen.  Specifically, we thoroughly wash and sanitize cookie dough making equipment before and after all allergen laden batches.  Also, when boxing cookies we have separate spatulas used for cookies with nuts in them.

 

At this time however, we will only put nut-laden cookies in different packaging than our other cookies if specifically asked to do so.

 

That said, we do process our nut-free cookie dough on equipment that also processes nuts, so, we advise extreme caution if there is any concern of an allergic reaction.  That is to say, we recommend anyone who may have an allergic reaction to our cookies due to the above stated fact to not eat the cookies.  We take your safety very seriously, safety and caution is always the best practice!

 

If you have questions, concerns, or want to know more about this or any other allergy, please email us at hello@lioncubscookies.com!
