Not the Biggest…Just the Best!

Back at the beginning, when we were thinking about what type of company to be, we read Small Giants, by Bo Burlingham. In his book, Bo tells us about unique companies that have chosen to be ‘great’ instead of ‘big’ and how they have developed their own ‘mojo’, or business soul.Well, we thought this was quite inspirational and decided that, at Marcelita’s Cookies, instead of aiming to be the biggest, we just want to be the best! Simply put, our mojo or business soul is:
  • To honor God in all our doings
  • To delight our customers in every possible way
  • To make our company and community stronger
  • To foster our business partners and suppliers relationships
Thank you for your business and drop us a line from time to time. We always love to hear from you!Saludos, Marcelita and Juan
