Michael first recognized his aptitude and love of baking while helping his mother make exceptional desserts as he grew up.
He went on to study the art and science of baking and making fine pastries, and graduated as a pastry chef in Vienna, Austria. From there, he's put his gourmet expertise and love of his craft to work in some of the world's most respected luxury hotels and resorts.
More than 45 years later, as founder of Michael's Cookies, he sees his treats served as favorites in the same premier settings in which he built his career.
Founded in 1987, Michael's Cookies provides ready-to-bake frozen cookie dough to elite purveyors throughout the US. Why cookies? If you ask Michael, he'll explain how cookies are the perfect comfort food, helping customers recall fond childhood memories.
The Michael's Cookies mission is twofold. First, to produce cookies so good that they're the closest a customer can come to fresh-from-the-oven homemade. Second, to instill the notion that gourmet cookies like these can't be found just anywhere. Only the finest venues serve Michael's Cookies.
Michael's Cookies has succeeded with both endeavors as business continues to grow steadily, primarily by the word-of-mouth referrals of satisfied customers. Today, Michael's offers more than 20 premium flavors served by some of the hospitality industry's most recognized names, including Ritz Carlton, Hyatt, Sheraton and Fairmont, to name just a few.
Michael's products and services continue to grow in step with the business. That's because the Michael's Team isn't content unless it's making things better. The secret to great business is as much about great people and great relationships as it is about great cookies.
Since opening its doors, Michael's Cookies has become a recognized hallmark in the hospitality industry, capturing First Place for Best Product in Outstanding Food Service, at the National Association for Specialty Foods New York Trade Show and the American Taste Award conferred by the American Tasting Institute of San Francisco.
With its superior selection of all-natural, certified kosher ingredients, wide variety of flavors, advanced packaging and high emphasis on customer satisfaction, Michael's is the cookie of choice among discriminating gourmet chefs and quality food service establishments.
