Life is sweet for Cory Nieves. The bespectacled 10-year-old CEO of Mr. Cory's Cookies
is building a dessert empire and has gained national attention for his treats as well as his
designer threads all before starting fifth grade. Mr. Cory's story dates back to 2009. He
started off selling hot cocoa, lemonade and cookies from a stand in Englewood, N.J. Now,
Mr. Cory's Cookies are available at markets and events in New Jersey and New York. He
has even brought his pop-up store to a West Elm furniture store in Chelsea and is working
to make his all-natural cookie dough available online.What makes his cookies special?
“They are made with love,” Mr. Cory told the Daily News. “They look scrumptious and they
make your mouth water.” The pint-sized businessman also has a flair for fashion. Mr. Cory
often showcases his sophisticated sense of style on his Instagram account, where he has
more 24,000 followers.
His favorite brands and designers include J. Crew, Ralph Lauren and Tom Ford, and he is
a fan of the pocket square. Mr. Cory’s career goes beyond baking and sharing Instagram
pics. The preteen is also an actor and child model and was featured, fittingly enough, in a
Pillsbury commercial in 2012.
