WHO WE ARE
Folks & Stories is an artisan cookie shop that focuses on novel, chef-made, craft cookies. We care a lot about the taste of our baked goods and use nothing but the highest quality ingredients and make everything in house! Naturally, we don’t use any artificial ingredients in anything we make - if we wouldn't serve it to our own family, we certainly wouldn't serve it to yours. We think that confections embody cultural significance, and is often associated with gifting for various occasions. To deliver that celebratory spirit and joy, we like to focus not only on delicious treats made with premium ingredients, but also on great designs, personalisation and expressing heartfelt messages.
Folks & Stories is a team-oriented operation. The key focus of our company’s management team is to lead by example, effectively and openly communicate and be collaborative with the rest of their team. We enjoy candid conversations with one another, and to support each other earnestly at work. We are all working with the same goal in mind, which is to make Folks & Stories not only the most delicious cookie shop around, but also a place for every individual in our team to grow together.
