Siobhan Holden is a student at Santa Barbara High School and brought cookies to her class one day, and everyone fell in love with them. Sometimes that's all it takes to get that entrepreneurial energy flowing. It turns out that high school kids don't have enough money to afford organic, handmade cookies, so she turned to a broader market and debuted at last year's Summer Solstice Festival. That was a great launchpad, and since then the cookies and the cookie business has grown exponentially. Along the journey to growing the business, she's learning about marketing, distribution, bulk baking, customer relations, and finding ways to build the business. She says that the reason they don't use preservatives in their cookies is that you wouldn't expect your mom or grandmother to use them in theirs. We agree.
