Elevate Your Brand
Courtney Cowan, founder and owner of Milk Jar Cookies, earned her baking stripes in her mother’s kitchen, sneaking spoonfuls of cookie dough during the process. In her spare time during her job as a Post Producer in Los Angeles, Courtney began perfecting her own cookie recipes in the kitchen of her one-bedroom apartment. After earning rave reviews, in the spring of 2013, she opened the doors to Milk Jar Cookies’ flagship location. Courtney’s inspiring entrepreneurial story has been celebrated across Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine, while her cookies have been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine and on the Today Show. Her first cookbook is being published in the fall of 2020. Laurel Mintz, founder and CEO of award-winning marketing agency Elevate My Brand, explores some of the most exciting new and growing brands in Los Angeles and the US at large.

48. How to Stay True to Your Brand One Cookie at a Time: Courtney Cowan
LIBERTY For Her with Nada Jones
Courtney Cowan is the Founder and CEO of Milk Jar Cookies, a Los Angeles based cookie shop selling small-batch handmade classic and adventurous cookies. Courtney has been baking cookies since she was a child, and this hobby continued to give her joy into her adult life. She would often bring cookies to work, but her co-workers had no idea they weren’t from a bakery and that Courtney herself had made them. Soon she began selling cookies online as a side-hustle. Although Courtney enjoyed her job in television, her dream shifted when she considered a future in cookies. In this episode, Courtney shares what it was like to transition a seven-year side-hustle into a re-branded brick & mortar shop and online business. Since Milk Jar Cookies opened five years ago, she has seen her sales consistently grow month after month. Courtney generously details how she has handled quality control, a growing team and running her brick and mortar shop during times of growth and expansion.
