Startup-Pivot-Thrive:
Molly B was single mom from rural Alaska and found herself down to her last $150. So she started making gourmet cookies. One after another they started selling. From 20 dz a week to 45 dz a day in just months! She was featured on Buzzfeed and the whirlwind began! In just a year Molly was endorsed by Food Network Stars, Forbes, and more. Now in just 3 years she is a national name: Molly B has a TV Show on FOODYTV network, a book, a Podcast, and is the owner of Molly Bz Inc. She's also the inventor of The Cookie Cooker! Most recently her booze-infused cookies were featured 2021 Oscar gifting suite, and this month hey will be in the International Emmy Gala bags. Our Alaskan community celebrates another milestone with Molly B: in just a few days she and her cookies make their first appearance on QVC!
