Meet Rachel Green of Kooky Dough Co in Santa Clarita

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Green.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Ever since I could remember, I’d bake for my family. It didn’t have to be for a special occasion and often times it was a way to practice new techniques and different recipes. I simply found so much pleasure creating little works of art and the immediate smile that followed after that first bite.

Once I graduated high school, I immediately decided to open up my own baking business. Following in the footsteps of my father, I always had the desire to run my own business. Sure, it’s had it’s moments of heartache but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love what I do and not many people can say that. Flash forward four years….I’d say I’m still at the start of my business because I know there is still so much to learn, experiences to be had, and new products and opportunities to come!

Has it been a smooth road?
Where I am at now took some intense mental growth and constant reassurance from myself to keep pushing forward despite the negative comments I received. It was also a wake up call, one that I didn’t expect, but I found more support in the online community and my customers (who have now become my friends) than I did from my own family. I figured there were two ways I could look at it, I could let their comments derail the business path that I so desperately wanted or I could use them to better myself and pursue the passions that I have to live the life that I want. It’s clear which path I chose.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Kooky Dough Co – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
We are well known for our handcrafted decorated sugar cookies. However, we also create many other handheld treats and we just starting to dabble into the cake world. We are a company that not only puts our focus into our delectable treats, but we strongly believe in a great customer service experience. We hold high standards for each customer to have a wonderful experience with us and we pay close attention to detail.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that Santa Clarita is such a close knit community. It feels like family and it’s where I have lived my entire life. There are tons of amazing local small businesses as well.
