About Us

In the May 9, 1988 edition of the New York Times, the food critic cautioned a cookie competitor to listen carefully for footsteps creeping up behind them.  The footsteps belong to Larry’s Cookies.  Perhaps in a subtle was that critic understood our plan.

Larry’s Cookies is definitely on the march!  Not with the sound of trumpets and the beat of the drum.  IT IS our plan to expand quietly and to offer the best quality product anywhere, at realistic prices.

In 1978, Larry Rozanski, then a practicing dentist living in the Washington, D.C. area, gave up his drills and requests to “open wider please” to become the principle of Larry’s Cookies.  He had perfected his cookie recipes in his kitchen.  His first store was opened in Washington D.C. in 1979, and soon people were “opening wider” without Larry’s polite request!  His store received critical acclaim.

Next Rouse Company, one of the nation’s premier Shopping Center Developers held a contest for thirty-five cookie companies from all over the country.  The winner would be offered a store at Harborplace in Baltimore, Maryland.  LARRY’S COOKIES won.  This became Larry’s second location.  The pride and quiet confidence of recognition was now on track moving ahead.



Soon other locations opened.  These include the Charles E. Smith Company’s Crystal City Underground in Arlington, Virginia in 1982; the Center Companies, the Pavillion at the Old Post Office in 1983; Sixth Street Marketplace in Richmond, Virginia developed by Williams, Jackson and Ewing.  Today, recognized regionally as a leader, additional locations are being negotiated with some of the nation’s leading Regional Mall Developers.

Quality control is a prime motivation at Larry’s Cookies.  Consistency of preparation, shipment of product to over-the-counter sales is all carefully supervised in order to maintain the home-based taste.  This is Larry’s Cookies standard and so it will remain.  Natural ingredients are always part of our complete line of cookies, brownies, muffins and other home baked favorites.  Locations are now open and operating in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware. Alabama and California.  Conservative growth based upon sounds fiscal policy and backed by success business principles.

Larry’s Cookies will be around for a very long time.  Although based near the nation’s capital, our platform will not change every four years.  We will provide quality, consistency and an ongoing promise to satisfy the tastes of our customers.
