The Cookie Tree.gif

Tantalizing Tastebuds for 40 years!


December 1981 brought the opening of The Cookie Tree. Two friends, after visits to San Francisco and other cities, decided they could make cookies just as good, if not better, than they had already experienced. With a limited amount of money, they set out and purchased used equipment, one oven, one pastry case, a used cash register, and found a little location on Plumas Street in Yuba City, California.  There they opened their gourmet cookie bakery. With no money for advertising, they counted on the quality of their product and the service they could offer their customers to build the foundation of their business. It was a success!


With the business nearing its 40th year in operation, owner and company matriarch Sue Smith has expanded the company that now employs more than 20 people, The Cookie Tree is more than just cookies!  In recent years, the menu has expanded to include gourmet bars, breakfast pastries, cupcakes, cheesecakes and more! 

With consistency and a bit of innovativeness, The Cookie Tree continues to grow and change shape daily all the while the basis of the business remains the same, the cookies - baked fresh daily, always using quality, fresh ingredients, and never compromising on baking standards, The Cookie Tree will be here for generations to come.

Celebrating 40 years in business! Thank you for your never-ending support. It is our pleasure to serve you.
