Established in 1995, Charlie’s has grown from a much-loved local shop selling home-baked cookies to an innovative producer of seriously delicious gourmet treats – both for the food service industry and for consumers to take home and enjoy. In 2004 husband-and-wife team Ken Mahlab and Jacky Magid left behind the corporate rat race to concentrate on their new found love, Charlie’s Cookies. With the best bite chocolate chip cookies (as voted by Tattler Magazine) on their side, they set about rebuilding the company.
The owners have found it challenging being a business owner at times; Charlie’s is often referred to as Ken and Jacky’s third child, but Charlie's has been and continues to be a deliciously wonderful journey for them and their two young cookie connoisseurs. Moreover, Jacky and Ken are in their element in a dynamic and innovative small to medium size business.
Charlie's Cookies are committed to making sure their cookies are the freshest and tastiest every time, this is achieved through the use of premium ingredients only from suppliers who care about quality food as much they do. Everything at Charlie’s is made from with natures finest ingredients, their products are handcrafted in Bentleigh, Victoria and are loved around the world. They offer something for everyone whether it be an indulgent treat or a healthy snack, you can be sure that your taste buds will be tantalised.
