"We’re excited to boost our expansion by shipping Take-and-Bake kits nationally while we work on opening locations across the country,” said Leon Chen, Tiff’s Treats co-founder.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
For the first time in the business’ history, Austin, Texas-based Tiff’s Treats has announced it will offer national shipping—not for its signature straight-from-the-oven desserts, still baked to order and hand-delivered only around its stores—but for its Take-and-Bake chocolate chip cookie kit.
The freshly mixed and frozen cookie dough kit lets fans create their own warm cookie experience when the craving strikes and gives Tiff’s Treats a foray into serving customers beyond its store delivery areas. Cookie lovers across the country can now taste the fast-growing brand’s most popular cookies and can delight others by giving Tiff’s Treats cookies as gifts.
"We get so many requests to deliver cookies outside of our store’s delivery zones, especially for holidays like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s and Father’s Day,” said Tiffany Chen, Tiff’s Treats co-founder. “The Take-and-Bake kit is a perfect way for fans to share our cookies with their friends and family – with the added benefit of filling their kitchen with the smell of fresh cookies – until the day there’s a Tiff’s Treats store near where they live.”
Tiff’s Treats got its start in 1999 when Tiffany Taylor and Leon Chen, two friends at The University of Texas at Austin, began baking and delivering warm cookies to help fellow students get through exams. The two are now married and Tiff’s Treats has grown from a college apartment kitchen to 58 company-owned stores across the southern U.S. The business is known for its classic, baked-to-order cookies and brownies delivered straight from the oven to the home or office, warm, in about an hour.
Investments totaling $50 million over the last 4 years have helped accelerate Tiff’s Treats’ expansion, including investment from Andy Roddick and his wife, actress/model Brooklyn Decker, long-time Tiff’s Treats fans, who came on board in 2018 as brand ambassadors. The company says further expansion is planned for 2020 and beyond.
“We look forward to opening more stores this year to expand the areas we can serve in our current markets, and will continue to open new markets in the coming years. We’re excited to boost our expansion by shipping Take-and-Bake kits nationally while we work on opening locations across the country,” said Leon Chen, Tiff’s Treats co-founder.
The Take-and-Bake cookie kit was a limited-time offering last year, brought back due to its popularity. It’s available now through the Tiff’s Treats website or app for $35 and can be shipped to any address in the contiguous U.S. in 2-6 business days.
About Tiff’s Treats
In 1999, Tiffany Taylor accidentally stood up Leon Chen for a date. As an apology, she baked and delivered a batch of warm cookies, and the concept of warm cookie delivery was born. Tiff and Leon, just 19-year-old sophomores at The University of Texas at Austin at the time, opened Tiff’s Treats with $20, a cell phone and a dream. Since then, the business has grown to 58 stores in Texas, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina, with more than 1,000 employees, baking more than 100 million cookies since the company started. The founders are now married and the business continues to grow, but Tiff’s Treats has the same core mission: creating memorable moments through classic, baked-to-order cookies and specialty desserts from high-quality ingredients, and delivering them straight from the oven to the home or office, warm, in about an hour. Customers can order online, with the Tiff’s Treats app or by phone, all supported by industry-leading technology and top-notch customer service. The charitably-minded company continually gives back. On top of hundreds of thousands of cookies per year donated to nonprofit organizations, each new store’s grand opening benefits a local charity. To date, Tiff’s Treats has donated over $200,000 to worthy causes through these events. To learn more, please visit https://www.cookiedelivery.com.
