PLANO, Texas, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Cookies by Design, a national franchisor based in Plano, Texas, is opening its new Gifting Center this month in Plano. The Center, which will be the company's central distribution location for many customers across the U.S., will employ 75 new workers.


"In addition to creating 75 new jobs in our local area, we will also use a portion of the Center's revenues to increase national advertising efforts," commented Gwen Willhite, founder of Cookies by Design. "Although we've been in business for more than 25 years, there are still many people who are not aware of us. Our national advertising efforts help to enhance our brand awareness and increase sales for our franchise and corporate locations."

Cookies by Design offers unique cookie gifts and treats including creative cookie bouquets of hand-decorated sugar cookies. "Because our product is hand-crafted, many of the new employees we're hiring are bakers and cookie decorators," said Willhite. Other employees to be hired include product packaging associates and call center personnel.

In addition to two corporate shoppes in the local area, Cookies by Design also has over 150 franchised shoppes in 42 states.

With the Holidays just around the corner, Cookies by Design is sure to bake up happiness - for both customers across the country and 75 newly employed area residents.
