METRO MANILA / FOOD / Dessert / Cookies
Founders: Mikaela Fajardo and Isabella Fajardo
1. What got you started with this brand? What was your inspiration? What is the idea/concept behind it?
Cookies have always played an important role in our lives. May it be for a birthday celebration, a simple pick-me-up after a long day, or a random craving, they have this way of making you feel right at home. We’ve been baking for several years, but it was only last year that we felt we perfected what for us was a perfect cookie. Sœur means “sister” in French because it is the brainchild of two (2) sisters who share the same love and passion for good food. No frills, just straight up love-at-first-bite cookies.
2. What is your best-selling product?
Our best-sellers are the Classic Chocolate Chip and the White Chocolate Macadamia.
3. What do you want people to experience with your brand/product(s)?
Here at Sœur, more than the ingredients we use, we take utmost pride in the love and passion that we put for the food, the process, and most of all, the people. We really want just one thing—for our love for cookies to transcend to our customers that have turned into family. Each batch is made with so much TLC—every ingredient placed, process used, baking time, etc. was a product of several years of trial and error, so we really hope that our clients taste and feel the love that we put into it.
4. What tips and advice can you give to entrepreneurs who are just starting out or are planning to start their own brand?
If not now, then when? Do what you love and no day will feel like work.
5. What’s next for your brand?
We’re always (secretly) up to something so do stay tuned for more flavors and perhaps new products in the coming months!
6. What other additional information and details would you like to share?
What makes everything even more beautiful and fulfilling is that not only do we get to share our love to our customers, but over the past year, we’ve grown to create long-lasting relationships with them that are beyond transactional. We value them more than anything because we owe it all to them. We also value the fact that we’ve help so many drivers along the way as they are our modern-day heroes. It is through and with Sœur that we believe, we’ve somehow made an impact on others’ lives.
