Our nonfiction manuscript How to Make a Cookie is approximately 60,000 words and falls in the genre of business history with a Popular Culture twist. The content has been edited by Jenna Gaines, PhD, History. The manuscript provides details on everything Archway, from air balloons to State Fairs and piano strings. It also has some wonderful photographs to enhance the narrative. We had a rich variety of sources.
This enjoyable, easy read encompasses details on Archway franchise bakeries in 26 locations across the United States, Canada and Japan, plus hundreds of Archway distributors like Bob in Alaska. How he receives cookies is absolutely fascinating!
We flavored our work with a broad sprinkling of tasty morsels that place the company and its people in the context of American events and trends. For instance, they had to pay people to use shopping carts when they were first invented! When we began this project, we didn’t even know flour could blow up an entire bakery!
