MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)–When Megan Mottley’s daughter asked her mom to go on a mission trip to Japan, Mottley put on her apron and got to baking.
Mottley decided to bake and sell her chocolate chip cookies to raise some of the funds for her daughter’s trip.
With a goal of $3,500, her hopes were high that friends and family would be supportive, but she soon found out her cookies were creating repeat customers.
Word spread fast and
“Even after the fundraiser was over and I announced to everyone that the coast is clear, she’s going to Japan, people were texting and in-boxing me and saying that is so great, we’re happy for her, but what are we supposed to do about our cookies?,” says Mottley.
After careful consideration and praying on the matter, Mottley says she decided to go into the cookie business.
Monday was her frozen cookie dough debut at Curb Market in Crosstown Concourse.
Mottley was on hand to share samples with customers and to spread the word about her Goodness Gracious frozen chocolate chip cookie dough.
“Curb Market was generous enough to reach out to me. I was trying to get myself together to go into the grocery stores but in my mind I just wasn’t quite ready but the owner reached out to me and they were just so gracious and helpful throughout the entire process,” says Mottley.
