Rip Van vs Tate’s 🥊

In the 1970s, Tate’s Bake Shop founder, Kathleen King, began selling her homemade cookies at a farmstand in Long Island. After college, King opened her own bakery, and her cookies later became available at local New York Supermarkets; In 2000, she founded Tate’s. Twenty years later, these cookies are available in 85% of supermarkets and recognized for their crunchy texture and buttery taste.
