Tiff’s Treats is here! The privately held cookie company was founded in 1999 with simple ingredients: $20 for baking supplies, an apartment oven, a cell phone to take orders, and a dream. When Tiffany Taylor and Leon Chen were college sophomores at the University of Texas, she stood him up for a date and delivered hot-from-the-oven cookies to apologize. Chen convinced Taylor to turn her cookies into a business and Tiff’s Treats was born. The company started as small as one can get, with the two of them taking orders on a cell phone and baking cookies in the oven at Chen’s apartment. Today they have 800 employees and stores in four states. The Kingwood store is located at 4529 Kingwood Drive, Suite 160 and opened Saturday, Feb. 23.
