Jacqueline's Gourmet Cookies

Success Story

Jacqueline’s Gourmet Cookies provides gourmet frozen cookie and scone dough to supermarkets, restaurants, and other clients. Ready to expand, this Salem bakery needed funds to purchase equipment and make improvements. MassDevelopment issued a $1.54 million tax-exempt bond on behalf of Jacqueline’s. The bond proceeds allowed the bakery to acquire the vital freezers and other equipment necessary to ramp up production. Jacqueline’s now has the capacity to manufacture one million to two million cookies per day and offer other tasty products such as high-quality cakes and tortes.
