It's what's on the inside that counts
Sasquatch Cookies is the marrying of our three greatest passions: food, people, and giving. We create delicious, Sasquatch-sized cookies in thirteen different flavors that you can mix and match. We cause taste buds to sing and people do a little happy dance around their homes from the cookie goodness. We dress up in a Sasquatch Costume and deliver fresh-baked, warm cookies all around our community. We laugh with our neighbors as they send and receive cookies from the big man himself.
We care for people and desire to leave good footprints across our community. Everyday day we have people send each other cookies to let them know they care. We have moms and dads sending their children cookies to celebrate good grades and small victories. We have family from the other side of the country sending local college students thinking of you cookies and you can do this cookies. We have husbands and wives sending their deployed spouses I miss you cookies and I can’t wait to be reunited cookies. We have people send cookies for graduations, births, birthdays, parties, losses, grief, and just because I thought you needed these. Our cookies provide a place for people to share life and express that they are there.
We love being part of these messages and reminders sent to loved ones across Colorado Springs and the country (did we mention that we ship?), but saw the need for even more giving. Colorado Springs has approximately 1,800 people facing homelessness each year. Our community is marked by this reality as we see our neighbors asking for food and assistance on street corners, sleeping on cold sidewalks, and gathering at our local homeless shelters. We at Sasquatch Cookies aspire to come alongside these individuals and remind them of their dignity and worth. We partner with our local homeless shelter, Springs Rescue Mission, giving 10% of our profits to them and providing cookies for events like Christmas dinner at the mission. We recognize that as one individual it can be very difficult to make a lasting impact in our community and together we are stronger.
Lastly, Colorado Springs in beautiful. With Pikes Peak at our backdoor, the mountains beckon you to come explore them and the near-constant sunshine brightens even our darkest days. We have been given such a beautiful place to call home and desire to take care of it. To do this, we package our cookies in boxes made from a brand that uses recycled, degradable, natural, or sustainable packaging. We also ask that our customers commit to saving a sasquatch by recycling their Sasquatch Cookies box.
We're a team of students, newly 30-year-olds, wives, brothers, sisters, extended family, and friends. Quite literally, we are a family run business with a majority of our employees and contract delivery drivers being related in some way or another to someone else in the business.
