Founder Feature: Marlo Guidice

Chief cookie curator. Not a bad job if you can get it! Marlo Guidice nabbed that spot by founding Marlo’s Bakeshop, an heirloom cookie bakery that uses the recipes of not just Marlo’s grandmother, but those of other bakers whose descendants submitted recipes via Instagram and Facebook. Crowdsourcing cookie recipes for packaged retail sales is just one of the features that makes Marlo’s Bakeshop unique.

Marlo places heavy emphasis on being a mission- and values-driven company. To that end, customer service is paramount in her business, and Marlo wants to make sure that every interaction with Marlo’s Bakeshop “leaves a smile on your face.” Quality and transparency in sourcing are also key components of the mission statement. Marlo’s Bakeshop is proud to have received certification in diversity sourcing.

And, given that the original recipe for the brand’s hallmark biscotti came from her grandmother, Marlo honors the strength and creativity of women through her development of a Women-Owned Company seal to celebrate and showcase female entrepreneurs.

In addition, Marlo’s Bakeshop is all about giving back. Every quarter, the company selects a nonprofit to receive 5% of its net sales.

Clearly, Marlo’s Bakeshop makes cookies you can feel good about eating!
