Valley Made, Local Strong: Cookie Place and Sweets
What started out as a home baking hobby turned into a business after Lupita Sanchez wanted to spend more time with her twins.
“I would have customers order from me and my sister,” said Sanchez. “My sister was Drizzle Sweets and I was Cookie Place and Sweets, so we decided to combine them.”
Cookie Place and Sweets was born and, now, they reside in the heart of downtown Pharr.
The self-taught bakers would watch videos and read books to perfect their recipes.
“We do a lot of detail on our cookies and we like to exceed our customer’s expectations,” Sanchez said.
The sisters don’t just bake cookies. They also take orders for chocolate-covered Oreos, Rice Krispies, strawberries and apples for every occasion, including quinceañeras and birthday parties.
The business is currently only doing curbside at 208 E. Park Avenue in Pharr.
You can also place an order with them through their social media pages or over the phone at 956-212-6399.
