SOLD – Parkers Crazy Cookies

By in 2023 - Volume 25

Parkers Crazy Cookies

RRC recently sold Parkers Crazy Cookies in Hayward.  Steve Zimmerman represented both the seller and buyers in the transaction.

David Parker, the seller, came up with the idea for Parker’s Crazy Cookies while talking with his college water polo coach at UCLA about animal crackers. He thought it would be fun to make his college water polo team into cookies for fundraising.  It then took him a year to figure it out. David was a graduate student living in Spain and he needed a little extra cash at the time, so he began making cookies and selling them in local stores. People loved them and he had a lot of fun creating them. Returning to the U.S., David settled down, took a job with a toy company, and then had a realization—why not turn his joy of cookie-baking into a new business? He shared his idea with his grandma, who had some good advice for him to go see a friend of hers who was a Past President of Hebrew Free Loan Association (HFLA) and he received an interest free loan from HFLA to start up his business over 20 years ago.

Parkers Crazy Cookies makes custom cookies to look like individuals for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings and sports events, etc. The cookies are baked fresh for each online order, and have a shelf life of 2 to 3 months.  The cookies are vegan and free from milk and eggs. It was important to David to create a low-sugar health-conscious cookie, and he realized oil would be better than fat. After that, he decided to remove the milk and eggs to go vegan, and once he tinkered with the recipe, he actually found it tasted even better than with animal products. In addition to being all-natural vanilla-flavored deliciousness, Parker’s Crazy Cookies are low in sugar, low in fat and EXTREMELY high in fun! They are also harder than most cookies to ensure they arrive safe & sound!

The buyers are Shaheen Kazi and her partner Eugene Weiss who have successful careers in product management, project marketing leadership and engineering.  Their backgrounds are conducive to scale the business to make it even more successful in the immediate future.

We wish David much continued success in his new future career and wish Shaheen and Eugene continued success in their new business and in all their future endeavors.
