Downtown Cookie Co., based in New York City, was created by Dan Guerrera in 2008. Dan grew up in an Italian family where good food was central to life. His childhood was filled with healthy, hearty meals made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. In 2008, Dan committed himself full-time to baking. He discovered that when it came to cookies, there was a niche to be filled in New York. Cookies had always been his favorite dessert, but he was unable to find the dense, moist, flavorful type he remembered from his food-loving family. So he decided to create them himself. After much experimentation and (maybe a little too much) sampling in his small kitchen, he had the right recipes, and in 2008, Downtown Cookie Co. was born. Downtown Cookie Co. offers seven varieties of cookies and ships anywhere in the continental United States.
