Southfield (CW50) – Lauren Roumayah grew up in a house full of cooking and baking. Constantly surrounded by food and desserts, baking has become her passion. After attending high school, she went to college closer to town. Finding a love for food all over Detroit, she began infusing flavors of Detroit into her baking, using her classmates as taste testers.
She founded the Detroit Cookie Company to bring original cookie flavors to the people of Detroit and continues to grow the business every year. The continued expansion of the business has led to the opening of a site in Ann Arbor, as well as a manufacturing facility where all products can be made in a much larger frame than in the store kitchen.
