Kathleen's Cookies: Impeccable Cookies and Giftware






On December 12th, Kathleen's Cookies celebrated its Grand Opening. This beautiful European cookie boutique is destined for great things. Kathleen McKay, the dazzling owner, is pictured here in her lovely store front and in the commercial kitchen (with me and my son, J.P.). The charming cookie boutique features a chic giftware selection, in an aptly named area of the store called "Let's Dish."

Kathleen's Cookies got it start as a internet store (http://www.kathleens-cookies.com/) and successful corporate gifting business. Kathleen was a participant in the FastTrac entrepreneurship course (a wonderful program offered through the Kauffman Foundation and the MI-SBTDC). I thoroughly enjoyed the invitation to be a business coach in the FastTrac program this year and, especially, meeting Kathleen (a real dynamo) and the truly amazing group of up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the Livingston County area.
