Why choose Casey’s Cookies over all the other cookies
available online? Not only do we
bake the most amazing cookies, we are a Cookie Company with a Cause.
Casey’s Cookies mission is to train and employ the disabled
to bake and sell cookies online. The
ultimate goal is to create a residential community where Casey’s Cookies
employees can live in close proximity.
Casey’s Cookies was founded out of a need that Casey’s
parents witnessed first-hand. Casey
was born with a rare disorder called Goldenhar Syndrome.
She has had multiple surgeries to correct hip and spine deformities, is
hearing impaired and is moderately mentally retarded.
Despite her many physical and mental challenges, Casey maintains a
positive attitude. She has an
ever-present smile, a desire to help others, and a love for
Casey’s parents recognized that there were few
opportunities beyond high school for Casey and the many other physically and
developmentally disabled children they had met when visiting Casey’s classrooms
over the years. So, they drew upon
their online business experience and created Casey’s Cookies, a 501c3
not-for-profit online company.
Casey’s Cookies started in June of 2010 and now employs an Executive Director, a
Kitchen Manager and three disabled young adults, including Casey.
Mentally disabled adults, like all of us, want most to work
in an environment that is safe, family oriented, and intellectually stimulating.
Each Casey’s Cookies employee is given a task for the day.
One may be mixing, another “scooping”, and one may be especially good at
cleaning all the dishes and pans when they’re done.
What they all have in common is a sense of pride in their
accomplishments. The wonderful smell
of fresh-baked cookies fills the air at our fully-certified commercial kitchen
located in Largo, Florida, but also present are the sounds of joy and laughter.
Carefully screened volunteers come alongside each disabled adult to be
sure all health and safety procedures are being followed, and they offer a
‘gloved’ hand when needed!
We hope you’ll try one of our many flavors of cookies,
including Chocolate Chip made with
Ghirardelli chocolate, Oatmeal Raisin
Cinnamon Chip, Vermont Maple, and our most popular Sugar Cake cookies.
Special orders don’t upset us!
We all love a challenge, and Casey’s Cookies employees are ready to bake
and sell their cookies with the extra attention you’ll appreciate with every
bite you take.
You can buy our premium, fresh-baked cookies

convinced that we sell the best cookies you’ve ever tasted, please spread the
word to your friends through our

physically and mentally disabled adults. Casey's
Cookies are truly cookies with a cause.
