It's a Gluten-Free boy meets girl kind of story.
It's a love story that could rival any modern day rom-com. Gluten-free boy (Ian) meets girl (Samantha), and while this generation might look to Netflix to pass the time, Ian and Samantha spent their weekends meeting in Ian's mom's kitchen, baking treats well into the late hours of the night.
As a result, they created an incredibly decadent cookie out of the best ingredients the local grocery store could stock. Knowing they had something special on their hands, Ian and Samantha wrapped up a few batches and headed to a nearby farmers market.
The cookies sold out, and now Ian, Samantha, and the team at Emmy's spend their days sending cookies all over the world. They named their company Emmy's, as a nod to Ian's mom who still lets them monopolize her kitchen in exchange for a tray of treats.
Emmy’s is a home grown, family-oriented company, committed to spreading the good word about healthy snacking as well as social and environmental responsibility.

Sit back and kick your feet up. Emmy's meant to be enjoyed.
