Harlem EatUp! : Mr Cory's Cookies

Cory Nieves, also known as Mr. Cory, is a pint-sized entrepreneur who serves as founder of Mr. Cory’s Cookies. The company sells natural gourmet cookies made with premium ingredients.

Mr. Cory lives in New Jersey, with his mother, Lisa, who is known as Cookie Mom. Together they created Mr. Cory’s Cookies when, at age 6, Cory decided he wanted to sell hot cocoa and Chocolate Chip Cookies to raise money to buy his mother a car because he was tired of riding public transportation. That led to the sale of lemonade. The cookies were a hit. Today, these delicious cookies are available in Chocolate Chip, Double Dark, Oatmeal Raisin and Sugar, with more flavors to come.

Mr. Cory and Lisa were recently featured on CNBC’s The Profit, which is the brainchild of businessman Marcus Lemonis, who is currently assisting the mother-son duo grow their business. For instance, the cookies are now available online for the first-time through their web site: He was a contestant on MasterChef Junior in 2015, and a year earlier Talk Show Host Ellen DeGeneres gifted Mr. Cory with a new car bearing the company’s logo during a segment of her TV show.

Mr. Cory looks the part of a CEO each day by wearing a dress shirt, tie and sharp trousers. He is also a model and has appeared in numerous ads, including collaborating on a major fashion promotion and his own clothing line. He has been able to work with some of the nation’s leading companies and brands.

As part of Mr. Cory CARES, he gives back to those in need. Mr. Cory often speaks at schools encouraging young people like him to become entrepreneurs. When he graduates from high school, he plans to attend Princeton University and study business and law.
