With more than 350 employees and New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno in attendance, David’s Cookies celebrated the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 160,000-square-foot facility on 11 Cliffside Drive this week. The renovation cost $15 million, according to a release from the cookie maker.
David's Cookies manufacturers and distributes cookies and frozen cookie dough for the food service and co-branding baking industries, according to a release. It also sells fresh baked cookies online.
The company plans
to consolidated its Fairfield and Longwood, Fla. facilities and has relocated
operations into their Cedar Grove location.
“We are grateful for the support that we received from the state and we look forward to a new future of expansion and growth in New Jersey,” President and CEO Ari Margulies said.
Margulies joined Fairfield Gourmet Foods, the parent company of David’s Cookies, in 1990 and has helped grow the company to annual sales of more than $90 million.
The building was purchased from Gussco Manufacturing, Inc. for about $9.44 million, CoStar Group reported.
