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, organic ingredients. Since the launch of the chocolate chip cookie, Mr. Cory has expanded his line to include seven more all-natural flavors for his health conscious customers: Double Dark, Healthy Melty, Lemon, Madagascar, Oatmeal Raisin, Sugar and White Chocolate Chip cookies.
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, Poterry Barn, Ralph Lauren, TOMS, Viacom, Whole Foods, Williams-Sonoma and more. In addition to working with nonprofits, such as Bergen’s Promise in Rochelle Park, New Jersey and the Children’s Aid Society in New York City.
When he’s not selling cookies, Mr. Cory enjoys playing golf, spending time with his cat, learning about different people and cultures, learning tips to grow his brand and reading. Mr. Cory’s favorite books are Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens and Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan.
Mr. Cory and his cookies have generated tremendous media attention in local, regional, national and international news outlets. Mr. Cory has been featured in ABC News, CBS This Morning, ESPN’S “The Undefeated,” Good Morning America, FORTUNE Magazine, The TODAY Show, The Oprah Magazine and more news outlets, who can’t get enough of Mr. Cory and his delicious cookies!
