Tiff's Treats to Give 10% of January Sales to Charities in Honor of its 21st Anniversary

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To celebrate 21 years of warm cookie moments, Austin, Texas-based Tiff's Treats, in keeping with its philanthropic history, is giving 10% of January sales back to the communities that support its sweet success. For every Tiff's Treats order placed in January, cookie fans can use unique coupon codes assigned to participating charities to help their charity receive extra funds. Tiff's Treats will give an additional $10,000 donation to the charity with the most sales at the end of January.

Each city with a Tiff's Treats store has at least one charity participating in the contest, with nearly 300 participating in total. Notable participants include March of Dimes and local chapters of Make-A-Wish, The Humane Society and CASA. Participating charities have received their unique coupon codes and have shared them with their networks.

"We can't think of a better way to kick off another year of warm cookie delivery than by giving back to the people and organizations who help our business thrive," said Tiffany Chen, Tiff's Treats co-founder. "We love how this contest lets customers who are involved with charities help earn money for the causes that matter most to them."

In the last 21 years, Tiff's Treats has grown from two friends baking cookies to help fellow students at The University of Texas get through exams to 57 company-owned stores throughout the southern U.S. The business is committed to serving each of its markets with classic cookies and specialty desserts delivered hot out of the oven, as well as the highest level of customer service.

The charitably-minded company plans to continue expanding in 2020. "As we focus store-by-store on delivering amazing treats and platinum-level customer service, we also look forward to adding new stores this year to expand our service area in our current markets," said Leon Chen, Tiff's Treats co-founder.

This is Tiff's Treats' second year to celebrate its anniversary by giving a percentage of January sales to charity, with last year's contest netting $40,000 for charity. The 21st anniversary contest runs through January 31, 2020.

About Tiff's Treats
In 1999, Tiffany Taylor accidentally stood up Leon Chen for a date. As an apology, she baked and delivered a batch of warm cookies, and the concept of warm cookie delivery was born. Tiff and Leon, just 19-year-old sophomores at The University of Texas at Austin at the time, opened Tiff's Treats with $20, a cell phone and a dream. Since then, the business has grown to 57 stores in Texas, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina, with more than 1,000 employees, baking more than 100 million cookies since the company started. The founders are now married and the business continues to grow, but Tiff's Treats has the same core mission: creating memorable moments through classic, baked-to-order cookies and specialty desserts from high-quality ingredients, and delivering them straight from the oven to the home or office, warm, in about an hour. Customers can order online, with the Tiff's Treats app or by phone, all supported by industry-leading technology and top-notch customer service. The charitably-minded company continually gives back. On top of hundreds of thousands of cookies per year donated to nonprofit organizations, each new store's grand opening benefits a local charity. To date, Tiff's Treats has donated over $200,000 to worthy causes through these events. To learn more, please visit https://www.cookiedelivery.com.
