Lexie founded Strictly Cookies in October of 2010 after lasting two (brutal) months in Shanghai without her favorite treat. Unable to find the delicious homemade cookies that had so defined her childhood and young adult life, Lexie set out to both bring a taste of home to people living abroad in China, and show the good people of China what they’d been missing for the past few centuries (give or take).
Song Shifu is our early bird baker. This man wakes up before many of you party animals have even had your last cocktail in order to offer our customers the FRESHEST of cookies. He is also a Libra.
Wang Shifu has *it*. I know you can tell just by looking at this picture. We are #blessed to have him as a delivery guy
Tinna really does a lot. Like a lot a lot. I could list it out here, but it would take too much time, so suffice it to say she keeps things running SMOOTH.
You can tell by Lao Hu’s smile that he’s good on his bike. This man is responsible for getting you cookies “as fast as your mom in high school” (he’s been working on his burns)
This is Zhao Ayi. She is my baking soul sister. She is amazing and an unbelievable baker and probably one of the best people ever. This is her in our kitchen holding cinnamon and a pumpkin, two CRUCIAL cookie ingredients.
Xie Shifu is a sweetheart on and off the roads. A shy gent, he will gently place cookies in your hands and then JUST LIKE THAT be gone. He teaches us great things about impermanence that way, which I don’t think is a coincidence.
This is Gao Ayi. She has a sweet voice and a tender heart, and helps us roll literally thousands of cookie dough balls. many thanks, gao ayi. many thanks.
Liang Ayi is one of the mad geniuses behind our new decorated cookies! She is all about detail and beauty.
