Cory Nieves also known as "Mr. Cory" always dreamed of making the world better for everyone he knows. That passion, combined with a love of treats and an entrepreneurial spirit, led him to be the owner of Mr. Cory’s Cookies at just six-years-old. In 2010, Mr. Cory told his mother, Lisa, he was tired of taking the bus to school and he wanted to buy a car. He crafted the idea to sell hot cocoa to raise the funds in his local town of Englewood, New Jersey.
After realizing his dedication to his new business, Lisa encouraged him to continue selling hot cocoa to save money for college. Not only did Mr. Cory keep at it, but he began selling lemonade and cookies to expand options for his loyal customers. Mr. Cory and Lisa spent months learning how to bake, testing original cookie recipes.
One day, they taste-tested a cookie and had a “voila!” moment–the perfect chocolate chip cookie that was all-natural and made from high-quality, ingredients. Since the launch of the chocolate chip cookie, Mr. Cory has expanded his line to include more all-natural flavors for his health conscious customers: Double Dark, Oatmeal Raisin, and Sugar, with more to come!
Through his cookies, Mr. Cory has been able to work with some of the nation's leading companies and brands, including, but not limited to: Aetna, Barney's, Bloomingdales, Citibank, J. Crew, Macy's, Mercedes-Benz, Pottery Barn, Ralph Lauren, TOMS, Viacom, Whole Foods, Williams-Sonoma and now our partner, Mr. Marcus Lemonis!
