One Local Bakery’s Recipe for Massive Online Cookie Kit Sales

Dolce and Biscotti is a fine Italian bakery in Clifton Park, NY that sells cookie decorating activity kits for kids online. At the start of the pandemic, owner Mary Baldi-Fron was faced with the dilemma of how to keep sales up without foot traffic to their bakery. To get the word out about the new kits, Dolce and Biscotti partnered with Mannix Tourism, while also working with our team of website experts to quickly pivot and build out their Cookies To Decorate website in order to increase online sales. The posts about the kits on our popular regional social media platforms went viral almost instantaneously.

The Recipe for Dolce and Biscotti’s Success 

As every baker and marketer knows, timing is everything. And for Dolce and Biscotti, timing their post exactly when Easter sales were starting to pick up and when New Yorkers were desperate for new indoor activities, made all the difference. As our local community started to adjust to life indoors in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic,  a Cookie Decorating Kit was the perfect cup of fun and sugar that our fans wanted and needed.
