It all started in the crazy year of 2020. With an abundance of time on her hands, quarantine led Jordyn to take her passion for baking to a whole new level when she set out to create the perfect cookie. She aimed to craft something thick and chewy with crisp golden edges on the outside and a slightly under baked center. She enjoyed dedicating long hours of research and a lot of time testing batch after batch to try different recipes and ingredient combinations. Finally Jordyn produced JoJo’s first and finest: the chocolate chip cookie.
After the development of several new flavors and a lot of taste testing, Colin quickly came to believe that this could become so much more than just a hobby. When they shared cookies with friends and family, the feedback was overwhelming.
Not long after their wedding, Colin talked Jordyn into taking the leap into business ownership and together they started JoJo’s Cookie Co. Jordyn resigned from her job in the insurance industry so she could fully dedicate herself to their new company, and since then it has grown tremendously. From JoJo’s humble beginnings in the kitchen of Colin and Jordyn’s first home in Saginaw, MI to their new storefront in Petoskey, MI, their goal remains to create “Smiles from Scratch” one cookie at a time!
