A Syracuse company’s rise to top US decorated cookie company
What started as a small family business in Syracuse about a decade and a half ago is today the largest decorated cookie company in America, but still operating in the Syracuse area. The Decorated Cookie Company is found in many top retailers from Costco to Target and Barnes and Noble just to name a few.
