Who are we?
Fortune Cookies are all about the experience – it’s fun. There’s the anticipation of what’s inside the cookie, then the conversation around the message that is usually shared, and of course there is the great tasting cookie for afterwards! – Sandy Broadhurst, owner of Fortune Cookies.
From wedding favours to promotional items, birthday parties to corporate gift boxes, we think Fortune Cookies are fun for everyone, and perfect for any occasion – we’ve even been a part of a few marriage proposals!
We are the only Fortune Cookie bakers in New Zealand – with our factory and shop in the heart of Milford Village, on Auckland’s beautiful North Shore.
But of course we can ship NZ-wide. Just drop us a line, tell us what you need and where you need it, and we’ll do the rest.
The year was 2007 and former chef, Sandy Broadhurst, decided to start a small business called Fortune Cookies, taking inspiration from an American company.
But curiosity around the crispy treats resulted in Sandy working on her own recipe and hand-making them. Then when a fortune cookie machine arrived from the US in 2012, it meant operations could be scaled up to bake large custom orders – all in-house!
Although things weren’t smooth sailing straight away – as converting the oven to operate in our fine land in the South Pacific wasn’t as easy as expected. But finally, after 18 months of trial and error, there was success.
Since then, Fortune Cookies has been going from strength to strength, and because there are so many colours, flavours, and messages that can be individually customised, there is no limit to the time and place they can feature – either as the star of the show or as a delightful added bonus. And this is the part that Sandy enjoys the most;
“I really like working with our customers to create something unique, and hearing about all the different occasions where people use the cookies. From engagement rings to casino chips and gift cards, it is fun to think about all the possible things that can be hidden inside our fortune cookies.”
