The woman behind the cookie..
I have not had the pleasure to talk to the owner of the Detroit Cookie Company personally. Lauren Roumayah is all over Instagram for Detroit Cookie Co. and her energy is infectious. Her marketing is hilarious, and the team is always wonderful. The team providing the customer service is also always smiling and so helpful in recommending flavors and cookies. Lauren is a Michigan native, graduating from Wayne State University, and originally selling cookies wholesale and online. Eventually, she & her husband leaped to open a brick-and-mortar location, which quickly became a cookie phenomenon.
