Montreal: Yo’ Dough

yodough.com


The Baker
Cookie Chief Jesse Schwarz got a taste for the business when he sold his first batch to a local coffee shop as a teen. These days, his treats are produced in top-tier facilities to keep up with demand.

The First Bite
Schwarz started Yo’ Dough five years ago with one goal: to re-invent the chocolate chip cookie in the craziest flavours imaginable. (Check out the latest experiments on Instagram at @yodough.)

The Flavours
With a variety of creations, like Chocolate Pretzel and Easter Egg, picking one can be a challenge, but the assorted box lets you try them all.

The Delivery
Yo’ Dough delivers across Canada and the United States in a matter of days. Montrealers can find them in cafés and shops around the city, too.

The Next State
Jesse’s baking up new flavours like Chocolate Croissant, Cinnamon Bun and Ice Cream Sundae for later this year.


Toronto: Craig’s Cookies

The Baker
An actor and musician by trade, Craig Pike began delivering cookies during a month of downtime in 2013. Now ­operating out of a Parkdale bakery, he hand-makes and delivers dozens of cookies to ­hungry Torontonians daily.

The First Bite
“People loved my cookies when I brought them to parties,” says Pike, “so I thought I should try selling them.” He tested the idea via Facebook and Instagram; within the first month, he sold over 2,000.

The Flavours
It begins with the recipe Pike picked up from his mom. He then adds a ­variety of ingredients, including whole cookies and ­chocolate bars. Strawberry Pop-Tarts and Nutella are the most popular flavours.

The Delivery
Cookies are delivered free with a ­minimum order to the downtown core (or for $6 outside it) within 24 hours.

The Next State
Pike envisions opening a small cookie-centric bakery and espresso bar in the future.
