Cookies in Bloom is a food decorating franchise and specializes in the baking industry, more particularly in preparing cookies. The creative cookie decorators at Cookies in Bloom work magic as they create artful custom cookies and cookie arrangements. They make the perfect gift for any celebration or business occasion. Looking for a new business to start together, the Pinacs couple decided cookie gifts were the idea they wanted to pursue. In 1989, the couple founded Cookies in Bloom, a store that creates and ships bouquets and gifts made with sugar shortbread cookies. The Pinacs began franchising their concept in 1991, and now the company's franchisees operate stores in the West, Midwest and South making cookie arrangements for all holidays and occasions.
