Top Shelf CookiesTop Shelf Cookiesoffers a broad selection of unique cookies using high quality, often unexpected ingredients.“I never set out to be a baker, but I have always loved making and eating cookies,” says founder and owner Heather Yunger. “I had a crazy superstition that if I brought my Black & Gold cookies to the bar before every Boston Bruins home game, they would win. When the Bruins won the Stanley Cup at the end of the season and my cookies had been a huge hit, I decided maybe I should make a go of it.”
Yunger says that she got encouragement from Brewing the American Dream since Top Shelf Cookies was just an idea. One of the regulars at her favorite pregame bar was none other than BTAD Director Jennifer Glanville herself. Yunger has received four loans through the program’s financing partner, Accion. She also feels that the “real life business advice is gold.”
