Monkey Cookies is a gourmet cookie franchise located within the UAE that specializes in the sale, delivery and distribution of freshly made cookies. Baked directly within their individual stores or delivered to their customers, each individual cookie is handmade and contains an assortment of ingredients ranging from marshmallow fluff (i.e. the white marshmallow tasting stuff they put on top) to various candy bars, spreads (ex: Nutella) and an assortment of other ingredients that are meant to entice customers to come into the store and indulge in what many describe to be a “guilty pleasure”. Due to the nature of the product being sold, the store primarily caters to young customers (i.e. school children, high school students and young adults), however, other customer demographics do patronize the products of the bakery due to the high quality of the product being sold as compared to grocery bought cookies (Tong, McCrohan & Erogul, 2012).

Dear, Mr. Journalist
We have recently started a brand new enterprise called “Monkey Cookies” that is located along Sharjah road. It is a concept that has never been seen before in the UAE since we focus on what we call “comfort food”. We sell products that primarily appeal to young children and teenagers yet can be enjoyed by adults as well. Our products consist of freshly baked high quality cookies that can be eaten with a glass of fresh milk. This is a business concept that capitalizes on creating a comfortable and nurturing atmosphere within our stores that lets our customer relax and enjoy themselves so that they can experience the full gamut of flavours that come with patronizing our establishment (Entrepreneurship vital for future growth, 2013).
It is due to this that we would like to invite you to try our products and write a special interest piece about how our store started and how it is the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit that is a valued commodity within our culture.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Public Relations Director.

Starting 8 am in the morning till 7 pm in the evening, the company will have a 50% discount on all its products for in store sales. This promotion coincides with the start of summer vacation for local schools and, as such, is a great way to meet up with friends that you have been missing over the summer (Majumdar & Varadarajan, 2013).
The promotion will begin promptly at 8 am and will be on a first come, first served basis. No reservation on particular cookie batches will be allowed, however, the store will continue to make batches from early morning till mid afternoon. As such, there should be more than enough cookies to satisfy all of our loyal customers and should prove to be a very delicious and enjoyable experience for everyone that comes!

Do note that seating within the establishment will be limited; however, takeout orders do fall under the promotional guidelines and, as such, will be allowed.
We hope to see you at the start of our celebration!
