Let us introduce our team to you! Together these folks make up the crew behind The Cookie Crate. If I can say anything about this team it's that we all bring something a little different to the table and there is a lot of laughter and goofing off inside the office! I mean, we still get work done too, of course :)
Meet Jon & Maegen Mills, founders and owners of The Cookie Crate. Insanely opposite and yet completely compatible! Jon is the dreamer, constantly pushing outside comfort zones and striving for more. Maegen is the creative and content creator. Jon runs the day to day operations, overseeing employees while you can typically find Maegen in Instagram stories, responding to your emails or concocting new cookie ideas or boxes for future launches.
They reside in Johnson City, TN with their four kids who are 5 and under!
Meet Alex, our head Baker. Alex started working with us to pack and fulfill orders during busy launches and then expressed her interest in baking. She eagerly jumped in and learned the in's and out's and quickly mastered cookies in the kitchen. This girl can pump out so many cookies in a day (to perfection I might add) it would make your head spin! She works hard to ensure each recipe crushes it in both flavor and texture! Alex is sweet and quiet and can clean like a freaking boss! She keeps the kitchen sparkling!
Meet Jess, our office manager. Jess was a pleasant surprise in the midst of chaos. Hired in to help us fulfill orders during the high volume we received during our limited edition Winter box, Jess quickly showed how efficient and focused on details she is. After the hustle calmed down a bit, Jess was asked to join our team immediately. Maegen belovingly calls her, "her right arm", as she helps to run the day to day tasks inside the office and packs your orders daily.
Jess has a heart of gold and loves regularly changing her hair color!
Meet Erin, our general manager. Joining our team during our One Year Anniversary she caught on quick and filled a role we were seeking. Erin keeps the office running smoothly overseeing daily operations while also helping to fulfill and ship orders. She’s also the person you’re most likely speaking with when you email us!
Erin is obsessed with her fur babies. Her husky, Rocky and her calico cat, Callie. She loves true crime podcasts and would live off candy corn if given the chance.
We couldn't share our team without introducing you to Dale, also known as "Mimi" to all the grandkids in the family. Jon's mom is the reason we even had somewhere to start when it came to cookie recipes. Our chocolate chip cookie is her exact recipe that she so thoughtfully shared with us after we told her we wanted the world to taste her BOMB cookies! From her original recipe we've grown and tweaked and made new recipes of our own, but it never would have happened had she not inspired us by always having warm, fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies readily available whenever we came to visit. #blessher
Dale walks with a spring in her step, sees the glass more than half full always and has a heart sweeter than her Chocolate Chip cookies!
