Books and Cookies is owned by Chudney Ross, who happens to be the youngest daughter of Diana Ross.
After graduating from Georgetown with a double major in English and Fine Arts, Chudney became a teacher within the public schools systems in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles. This experience gave her the opportunity to see firsthand how important it is to teach our kids to love and enjoy the reading experience.
With the creation of Books and Cookies, Chudney has created a fun, comfortable and engaging environment for children to explore and learn more about reading.
The business that my husband and I created is frequently lauded for our marketing and branding. From my point of view, Chudney has created a slam dunk of a successful business for many reasons. First and foremost, in my mind, is the consistent and fun branding that can found everywhere within the store. In our goodie bags, were all given a sippy cup with the slogan “Snack. Nap. Read.” The branding is quirky, colorful and clever.
And let’s not forget the sweet side of Books and Cookies – yum! Kids can decorate cookies, or snack on them while reading. My daughter wanted to go back to Books and Cookies on the day after our visit. Says a lot, right?
