A letter from the President

The PCC President’s Blog-Shout-Out awards Nikki Julian-Vasquez as our employee of the month for January 2009 and the year 2008 for her amazing powers of persuasion, her persistence and her winning personality.

As our one and only sales manager, she single-handedly takes on food giants and convinces them to reward their customers with the best cookie available.

Yours truly,

Shelly Pearson

Pacific Cookie Company on the Rachael Ray Show

Back in October, we received an unexpected but welcome phone call. Much to our surprise (and delight), the Rachael Ray Show was interested in featuring us as the Snack of the Day! We produced over 150 gifts with our All-Natural Oatmeal Raisin cookies for Rachael’s audience members to enjoy and shipped them overnight to her studio in New York.

After much anticipation, our Snack of the Day segment aired on January 14th, 2009. Nestled between features on a homegrown 6-foot zucchini (!) and an exploration of alternative acne treatments, Pacific Cookie Company Oatmeal Raisin cookies were shining beacons of chewy, classic cookie delight!

We are thrilled with the opportunity to have our cookies featured in front of a national audience and are thankful for all the positive feedback from viewers and local community members.

You can see more information about the January 14th episode on the Rachael Ray website http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/show/view/653/.
