The Russian Cookie House

HISTORY

Little Gina Dejoras became a cookie connoisseur when she tasted her first Russian Cookie at the age of 12.  Years later, after countless unsuccessful trips to bakeshops  to relive that first “Russian” experience, she began to work her way through countless recipes to arrive at the Russian Cookie concoction she now has become known for among aficionados.  By the early 90’s, she began baking the golf-ball shaped butter cookies and rapidly, what had started as a stately hobby, grew by word-of-mouth into a seasonal baking binge that saw many other products added to her original best-seller. Over time, the sizeable private and corporate client base that developed during the years of “home baking”, helped by a steadily growing product line, turned into the Russian Cookie House.

PRODUCT CONCEPT

The Russian Cookie House has a unique selection of cookies generally not found in the local market. The aim is to create product of clear distinction that is pleasing to the eye and the palate and very attractively packaged to be suitable for any occasion, as well as for daily consumption.

We seek to create a haven for the sophisticated cookie and pastry lover by introducing classic tastes from all over the world to the Philippine market. In addition, we develop original creations where we blend the old with the new, ranging from variations of well known favorites to wholly unique product. More and more, the health- conscious are attracted to our HIGH QUALITY SUGAR-FREE items.

TARGET MARKET

The Russian Cookie House attracts both corporate and private clientele from the A & B market segments, notably during the Christmas season but also throughout the year for any kind of gift-giving and occasions. Our experience has shown that we are a destination for those who want to try something new and appreciate the fact that we are constantly developing new merchandise.
