About Mrs. Fields’ Cookies
Debbie Fields started Mrs. Fields Cookies in 1977 in Palo, Alto, California. Her goal back then was to make people happy with her homemade chocolate chip cookies. Little did she know that her one-of-a-kind cookie recipe would launch her into a worldwide celebrity and make her company a globally known maker of cookies and baked goods.
Mrs. Fields Cookies came to the Philippines in 1994. By 2007, Cookie Cafe Franchise System, Inc. became its Master Franchisor in the country. From just one store, the franchise has grown to dozens of outlets nationwide serving oven-fresh premium baked goods with an extended line of gifting items, beverages, and other refreshments.
