Exploring Life & Business with Nina Ross of Nina’s Cookie Explosion

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nina Ross.

Hi Nina, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I always baked as a child and had the dream of opening my own cookie shop. My family would host “cookie parties” every year around the holidays and everyone would bring their most out-of-the-box cookie creations and I loved the idea of “making-your-own-cookie.

When the pandemic started last year, I went from full-time to part-time at my job which allowed me more time for my hobbies. After a hiatus, I started baking again and delivered the cookies to my friend’s houses so that I wouldn’t eat a ton. That’s when I decided to start my business.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
For the most part, my journey has been smooth. There has been some months where business was slower and I would get discouraged but those times never lasted too long.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Nina’s Cookie Explosion is a place where customers can create their own cookie.

What matters most to you?
My family and friends who have supported me throughout this entire journey. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
