Meet our first Pop-Up tenant, Emerald Austin of Royal Gourmet Cookies! Emerald is a SoCal native whose passion for baking began when she would watch her mother bake cookies at home as a child. Emerald would go on to explore other career choices but always had opening a cookie business in the back of her mind. A heath scare would turn into a shift in perspective and give her the courage that she needed to open Royal Gourmet Cookies.
Royal Gourmet Cookies is a Long Beach based cottage food bakery that gives Emerald the freedom to craft new recipe ideas while also raising her six children. She finds joy in creating unique combinations like her spicy chocolate chip cookie while still paying homage to traditional flavors. She offers individual orders, gift boxes, and cookie buffets for events. Royal Gourmet cookies also offers decorating parties that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Emerald plans to grow her business into a brick and mortar location where she will sell her products and host baking classes. She also has plans to open several cookie trucks. Stop by the Corner Pop-Up during the dates/times listed below and try her amazing cookies!
